This book covers a selection of some of the most common orchids you might encounter when walking on the Bibbulmun Track or travelling through the south west, along with a few of the rarer species that you can find through careful searching.
The south west of Western Australia has more than 350 terrestrial orchid species. These are found in a diverse range of terrain from heaths, sand-plains, seasonally wet swamplands and river courses to tall forests, arid and semi-arid deserts, rocky outcrops and mountain peaks. The area covered is between Kalbarri, Augusta and Esperance, but many of the orchids pictured in the book can be found during a day trip from Perth on the Bibbulmun Track.
