For only August and September every year, the West Coast National Park opens up the Postberg area to let visitors drive in to see the wildflowers that are in bloom.
After waiting in a long line of cars—an hour-and-a-half queue just to get in the park— we were suddenly all alone for lunch and a walk down the coastline at the Tsaarsbank area of the park, where we spotted at least one whale. It’s calving season for the southern right whale as they move up the coast.
The wildflowers didn’t disappoint either, even though we (and loads of others) got yelled at for walking in them. I think we’re all just too excited for spring—we can’t stay in our cars!
