Colours of Coalseam Print

Art print of an original painting 'Colours of Coalseam' by Helen Ansell.

“The Coalseam National Park is located halfway between Mingenew and my hometown of Mullewa and is one of the biggest tourist attractions in this area. The place of the first mined coal deposit in Western Australia, the park gets its name from the exposed bands of coal seams that still stripe the cliff faces. 2021 was one of the most spectacular displays of wildflowers I had ever seen in this area – inspiring me to paint this painting of fields of pink and yellow flowers. I took a friend there with me who, at the time, said she was enjoying watching my over-the-top excited reactions to the wildflowers more than the wildflowers themselves!” - Helen Ansell

Coalseam Conservation Park, along the banks of the Irwin River, shows some of the best wildflowers in the northern wheatbelt of Western Australia. The display includes yellow, white and pink everlastings, spider and donkey orchids, billy buttons, white and purple daisies.

Meanwhile, the river has exposed a bank containing bands of coal, siltstone, claystone, and sandstone, which display 250 million years of ecological history.
