The Sunshine Coast Wildflower Festival is an annual, spring event to celebrate the beautiful display of wildflowers on the Sunshine Coast.

The Wildflower Festival was born in 1967 by Kathleen McArthur, an artist, author, environmentalist and founding member of the Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland. Since its humble beginnings the Festival has grown each year with the support of local community groups hosting activities.

This year Coast Care will be hosting three walks with Rosa sharing her expertise at the Keith Royal Park walk on the 24th August; Mark leading his annual walk again at Coolum Beach West on Saturday morning 1st August, which is sure to delight and Tony leading another walk later on in the day at Marcoola, not to be missed!

The Wildflower Festival provides free, public guided walks and activities across the Sunshine Coast. From Bribie Island to Noosa National Park people can immerse themselves in nature. Discover the diversity of native, flowering plants in our local environment.
