Online guide to wildflowers upgraded for holidays

An online guide to local wildflowers has been upgraded in time for visitors to make use of it before the end of the holidays.

The Wildflowers of Warrah Trig website includes pictures of 129 native plants which can be found at Warrah Trig, off Patonga Dr, between Pearl Beach and Patonga.

It features pages showing what is "in flower this month", "where to look" and a simple identification guide based on flower colour, shape and size.

The website is the creation of Peninsula News editor Mr Mark Snell, using photos and flowering times he has taken and recorded over a 20-year period.

"The area is a wildflower showcase, with more than 150 species of flowering plants identified," said Mr Snell.

"As many as 60 are in flower at any one time during the winter months, and as many as 30 in summer.

"Almost all of the flowers on the website can be seen from a car along the sides of the track in the few hundred metres of mostly level ground between Patonga Dr and the trig point carpark.

"This makes Warrah Trig a great destination for the whole family - for the old, for the young and for the disabled."

He said the website aimed to enhance the appreciation of the great natural resource that Warrah Trig represented.

Improvements to the website included a redesign of the pages to make them more usable and accessible on mobile devices, as well as a map showing the locations along the dirt road where particular wildflowers were likely to be found.

Mr Snell said he believed the website was the most comprehensive photographic guide to local wildflowers and the only one showing where the flowers may be found month by month.

The website can be found at SOURCE: Media release, 9 Jan 2022 Mark Snell, Umina
