The Roadside Conservation Committee's Flora Roads program encourages road managers to protect and conserve roadside vegetation of high conservation value.

Flora Roads are tourist attractions, and are spectacular in spring. Information at relevant tourist points and signs can guide visitors to these areas, giving them a taste of Western Australia's unique wildflowers. These roads can enhance tourist routes in a Shire or region.

Nominating a Flora Road

Anyone can nominate a Flora Road. Just complete the nomination form and take two or more photos showing the roadside vegetation to best effect.

We are looking for roads:

  • with at least two kilometres of high conservation value vegetation; and
  • accessible by ordinary vehicles - not limited to four-wheel drives - as Flora Roads should be accessible to everyone.

The Roadside Conservation Committee will review each nomination and assess the roadside during the next possible spring period. The assessment "scores" it on conservation values, direct observation of landscape values, the road's accessibility and quality, as well as how busy it is.

Once a Flora Road is declared by the managing authority, the Roadside Conservation Committee will provide two signs, one for each end of the Flora Road.

Advice and management

The Roadside Conservation Committee can provide advice to local governments about managing Flora Roads, retaining their value or improving the condition of the roadside vegetation by actively controlling weeds and other threatening processes. We can also provide assistance on Management Guidelines and Codes of Practice for roadside vegetation maintenance.
