Imagine! You can combine your love of our natural landscape with the chance to win $500. Simply snap a shot of some gorgeous natural wildflowers in the Goldfields and Wheatbelt region in Western Australia and tag #AGOWildflowers for your opportunity to win.

We received a record amount of rainfall earlier in 2017 which makes for abundant floral displays in the Goldfields come to Spring, some you can view without even having to leave the highway. Make a day of it and include Lake Ballard, Ora Banda and Broad Arrow in your day tour and get snapping!

This competition ends on Friday the 27th of October 2017 and you can submit your entry using the hashtag via Instagram, Facebook or Twitter or by emailing images to digital@goldenoutback.com. Organised by the Australia’s Golden Outback and Tourism WA crew, your images have the potential of appearing in marketing publications for the promotion of our region around Australia and the world. Check out the full competition T&C’s on the Australia’s Golden Outback website.
