Wheatbelt Canola fields

If anyone is wondering what to do for a weekend excursion then I would strongly recommend getting out of town to view our Western Australian countryside at the moment!

Good winter rains have made for lush green pastures, awesome canola fields and an excellent array of wildflowers in the wildflower regions.

The above image is a good example of a typical canola vista.

Over the last few weekends I have been out to North of Southern Cross in the North East, Cervantes in the coastal North and Bluff Knoll in our South and onto Margaret River region in our South West.

All of those areas are absolutely stunning at the moment!

  3. I’ve made pretty much the same trips over the last couple of weeks too, it looks amazing at the moment. We’re heading up to Geraldton this weekend and then coming home via Mullewa, Coalseam National Park and a the inland route πŸ™‚

    Yes it is pretty amazing out in the country. Lovely shot. I have just come back from a trip to Albany and I dont think I have seen the Canola looking so good for a long time. On the Friday it was really stormy and the yellow canola looked amazing against the black sky. I will try and put some up tonight.

  8. I reckon that would look very cool against a dark sky Peta, I will look for your post!

  9. Very true Mark, going by your images the country is looking great !
