There is still time to view the wreath flowers that grow inland from Pindar to Perenjori.

Dozens of visitors go to a special place along a remote dirt track 10km from the tiny settlement of Pindar to view these unusual leschenaultias.

Wreath flowers change colour, gradually turning from a creamy white to red after insects pollinate them.

Wreath flowers are a creamy white when they first come out, gradually turning red as they are pollinated.

Residents say the recent rains have brought out the biggest wildflower displays for years.
