In early December the wildflowers in the Pilliga were amazing due to lots of rain in the area. Flannel flowers blanketed some rocky areas and the beautiful but minute wildflowers can be captured with macro settings on mobile phones.
Many roads were closed due to flooding, including the roads to Sculptures in the Scrub and to the Lookout Tower and Salt Caves. However, the road to the Sandstone Caves was open. The temperature was much cooler than expected for December. If you are intending to visit the Pilliga go to contact if you want help with planning your trip.
