About this park
After winter rains and during spring, the park is transformed by an annual display of wildflowers. Blankets of yellow and pink everlastings can be seen along with other colourful varieties, showing off some of the best wildflowers in the Northern Wheatbelt.
The park is rich in history and geology as the place of the first mined coal deposit in Western Australia. Exposed bands of coal seams can still be seen, along with siltstones, claystones and sandstones that stripe cliff faces and reveal 250 million years of ecological history.
There’s no shortage of walking trails and lookouts at the park. The 3.2km Plateau Loop Trail starting at Miners campground will lead you through ecologically important eucalypt woodland for the wheatbelt area, towards a plateau ridge with expansive views. At Irwin Lookout and Riverbend you will find more walking trails, some great vantage points of the park and information on the native flora and fauna.
There are caravan friendly campsites at Miners campground along with picnic tables and toilets. The campground can get packed during wildflower season and overflow sites are available at Breakaway Campground. So that everyone gets a chance to camp at the park, there is a three-night stay limit from late July to October.
Review - Who needs the Grand Canyon? This national park is very beautiful. We visited at the end of winter and there was an abundance of wildflowers on display … Coalseam is vast and magnificent. It is the kind of place you can spend a lot of time soaking in the views and natural beauty. Bruce D - TripAdvisor
