If you’re looking for a picturesque spot to visit, look no further than the beautiful canola fields. These bright yellow fields are a stunning sight to behold and make for a great day trip or weekend getaway. But where exactly can you find them in Perth?
Canola fields are typically in full bloom from late August to early November. The fields are scattered throughout the countryside, with many located in the Avon Valley and Wheatbelt regions.
It’s worth noting that while the canola fields are beautiful, they are also a vital part of Western Australia’s agriculture industry. Canola is a cash crop, and the fields are harvested for their oil-rich seeds, which are used in cooking and other food products.
