The Hidden Valley on a Balingup winter’s morning transports you to the northern hemisphere
The World Collection is indeed beautiful in the Winter. Balingup’s famous misty morning views will not disappoint as you walk up to Pear Tree Look Out. O follow the avenue of Desert Ash as they begin the procession of new growth by flowering mid-winter and being the first deciduous trees to leaf out from August with a burst of brilliant lime green.
Abundant yellow wattle flowers and lovely views to Balingup also make winter a great time to take a walk in the Australian Collection. With its grove of tall gums you will also find a rainforest glade with winter-flowering Firewheel Trees. Moving along to the Great Western Woodland are plantings of gimlets mallets and mallees with their exquisite bark and through some of WA’s rarest trees.
