Dalwallinu Discovery Centre

A gateway to the Wildflower Way

The Dalwallinu Discovery Centre is the place to find out all the local tips on where to visit. It is busy during the wildflower season, as people pass through to enjoy the local flora, especially the rare ‘wreath flower’ (Lechenaultia macrantha). You can also find out about local farming history and environmental issues. This is also a region where mallee fowl live, and you can learn about the conservation efforts of the North Central Mallee Fowl Preservation Group to save these vulnerable birds. There are links to the work of the Australian Wildlife Conservancy’s conservation activities at Mt. Gibson, in the Shire of Dalwallinu.
