Public Silo Trail: See the big picture

FORM’s PUBLIC Silo Trail is putting regional Western Australia up in lights, bringing world class murals to grain silos, transformer boxes and iconic infrastructure in unexpected towns right across the state.

Ravensthorpe AMOK Island

In the ancient ranges and rugged river valleys around the settlement of Ravensthorpe, wildflower season is every season. They are at their best between August and November, which you can time your visit to coincide with the town’s annual wildflower show in September, and identify over 800 local wildflower species.

Just over six hours’ drive south east of Perth and two hours west of Esperance, Ravensthorpe was once mined for gold, copper, silver, nickel and other minerals. Now a sheep and wheat centre,  the town also offers walks and drives just outside the centre that are too beautiful to miss. The Fitzgerald River National Park covers 297, 244 ha of coastline and is home to a vast array of local fauna and flora. It is recognized at one of the largest and most significant national parks nationwide as its home to nearly 20% of our floral species.

Don’t miss:

Whale-watching in the Fitzgerald River National Park. It’s one of only three places in Australia where southern right whales come to calve in large numbers. You can watch these gentle giants July to October from the cliffs at Point Ann or from Cave Point.

For more information and to plan your trip please visit the Ravensthorpe Community Resource Centre.
