Canola Fields


Please note: The Canola flowering season for 2021 has now finished.

Canola generally flowers mid-August into September dependent on seasonal rainfall, but flowering times and durations vary each season.

Canola is Australia’s major oilseed crop and Western Australia's third largest crop behind wheat and barley. Canola is used as a food-grade oil, as stock feed and for biofuel production.

Canola for Tourism locations are the only locations available for visitors to walk through Canola and take photos.
Outside Canola for Tourism locations, it is illegal to enter private Canola properties to take photos and can cause biohazard and safety risks to you and the crop.

York welcomes visitors to enjoy the stunning display of Canola, but please:

  • Stay out of crops
  • Park vehicles safely
  • Respect private properties

Contact the York Visitor Centre prior to your visit to avoid disappointment.
