Description

Watheroo National Park is sandplain country which hosts an abundance of wildflowers, with the best season being between late July and early November.

Low Creek borders the park to the east, flowing south to Moore River. Vegetation includes low sandplain Heath, Banksia and Malley thickets with tall Eucalypts on the West side of Park.

The hills are an outcropping of chert and other very old rock types that formed between 2.5 billion and 542 million years ago (mid Proterozoic era). Known as Noondine Chert, this geological formation is significant in the region for having unique plants that grow only in association with chert. The formation also influences an aquifer that supplies groundwater to local towns, and is a source of mineral silica, a vital component in many things used in our everyday lives.
