Dune Detective 2

Learn how to recognise which of the brilliant yellow flowers growing on the dunes are natives and which are weeds.


Dune Detective 3

Find clues by observing the leaves and shape of native plants and then match them to the flowers belonging to each plant.

Once you’ve successfully graduated from your detective course, try out your observational skills by walking along the paths and walkways around the dunes, keeping a sharp lookout for the things you have learnt about. You’ll also find more information about the birds, reptiles, plants and flowers of the Taperoo Dunes on our website.
