We are very lucky in Australia to have an abundance of native flowers. The beauty and diversity of the wild flowers inspire artists, designers, and gardeners and that means we have lots of great Australian native flower gift ideas!
The native plants of Australia are the most diverse and varied in the world, with an amazing 24,000 species of native plants identified. This is thanks to the different environments of the lush tropical rainforests, harsh stony deserts, alpine meadows and sandy heathlands.
Australia's national floral emblem is the golden wattle (Acacia pycnantha Benth). When it is in flower, this spectacular plant displays our national colours - green and gold. The Golden Wattle can be found all over Australia and when you walk down suburban streets it is common to see pops of bright gold in gardens in late Winter and Spring. We have lots of Australian made gifts inspired by the wattle including the beautiful wattle necklace and matching earrings. There are also cufflinks, greeting cards and tea towels featuring wattle designs.
We also have a number of products featuring the different States floral emblems. The Kangaroo Paw (Western Australia) and The Desert Pea (South Australia) are on our lovely magnet cards and the Waratah (New South Wales) is one of our favourite Australian flowers at Bits of Australia. It is featured in our branding and in the designs of many of our Australian made gifts including the waratah pendant & chain.
The Australian bottlebrush is very popular and featured in the lovely Australian Native Flower Magnet gift pack.
