It is with regret that the committee of the Darling Wild Flower Society must inform the wildflower loving public that due to the Covid19 pandemic no annual wildflower show will take place in Darling in 2020.

Please be responsible when visiting local wildflower reserves, social distance and please do not pick any flowers in the reserves or along the road reserves. Please be safe and see you next year.

 

Standing in a carpet of flowers in 1915, Mr. Frederick Duckitt of Waylands and Mrs. (Ds.) Suzanne Malan of “Die Pastorie”, Darling decided that the wonderful heritage of Darling’s wild flowers must be shared with others. The outcome was the founding of the Darling Wild Flower Society in 1915 and the first Darling Wildflower Show was held in 1917.  The Darling Wildflower Show has taken place on the third weekend in September ever since and is the oldest wildflower show in the Southern Hemisphere.
