The Ravensthorpe Herbarium, situated next door to the Wildflower Show, holds many hundred botanical specimens collected from within the Ravensthorpe Shire. Experts on the local flowers are on hand each day for identification queries.

Soup lunches and Devonshire Teas are available each day, provided by local fund raising organisations. The comfortable surroundings of the 106 year old Ravensthorpe Community Centre and gardens will make a refreshing 'tea break' for the weary traveller.

There are spectacular drives and walks in the district. A brochure, available at the Wildflower Show, Museum and Visitor Centre, identifies 12 drives designed for viewing particular flowers. It is also illustrated with stunning photographs.www.facebook.com/RavensthorpeWildflowerShow

Walks: The Hopetoun-Ravensthorpe Railway Heritage Walk Trail is made up of four sections along the old railway track between the two towns. There are plaques identifying flora and fauna and historical sites along the way. Brochures with maps of each section are available.

The Springdale Courtyard Cafe will be open during the Wildflower Show. Walks in the bush around the cafe and by the Jerdacuttup River, will reveal bountiful wildflowers.

Proceeds from the Wildflower Show are donated to partnership organisations which assist in the running of the show, the Senior Citizens and the Ravensthorpe Historical Society.
