It’s the beginning of spring and the wildflowers are blooming in the Australian bush. The most spectacular is the waratah – a large red bloom with curved, tubular petals. It reaches high towards the sky on top of it’s stalk, with its serrated leaves growing out from the sides of its long, straight stalk. It is a great time to hike. It isn’t too hot yet and the colour of the flowers bring life to the dryness of the Australian bush.
