The hidden treasures of Esperance’s wetlands were put on public display during the annual wildflower festival at the Anglican Parish Hall last week.

Hundreds of wildflowers and native plants from throughout the region were included in the exhibition, with this year’s theme being saline wetlands.

Locals, visitors and school children flocked to the hall over the past five days to get a close-up look at the plants and pictures drawn by the students.

It was important to showcase the wonderful bush diversity growing in the region, especially for children, Ms Hoggart said.

“We used to think of wetlands as just a dump, somewhere you would stick old machinery,” she said.

“But they are actually wonderful places.”
