PetTeet Park Canola Fields Review

PetTeet Park opens for the 2023 season on 19th August 

The town of York is known for its beautiful Canola fields which flower from mid-August into September. The historic town is located only one and a half hours east from Perth, making it the perfect destination for a day trip or a sneaky weekend getaway – if you are planning on spending the night I highly recommend Lavendale Farmstay.


What is Canola?

Canola is a type of rapeseed that was developed in the 1970s. The word “canola” is a combination of “Canada” and “ola,” meaning oil. Canola is grown in many parts of the world, but Canada is the largest producer.

The flowers of the plant are yellow, and the fields are often a bright yellow color when they are in bloom. The plant’s seeds are crushed to extract the oil, which is then refined and sold as cooking oil or used in other products like margarine or biodiesel fuel.


Where can I find Canola Fields in Perth, Western Australia?

The canola fields are a beautiful sight in York and Northam. Every year, the canola fields bloom and attract visitors from all over.

With the growing number of tourists and visitors trampling the canola fields and unknowingly destroying the crop and potentially spreading disease, the owners of PetTeet Park, a 100-acre farm halfway between York and Beverley, have planted a 20 square meter field of canola specifically for tourists to walk through and capture their insta-worthy selfies!

We visited on a sunny Sunday morning. The drive through the windy roads and sea of yellow was breathtaking! You’ll see canola fields for miles along the way to York.

Arriving at PettTeet Park we were directed where to park. Entry is $15 per adult and $10 for children and pensioners, children under 5 are free, CASH ONLY.  A family pass for 2 adults and 2 children is $40. Open Saturday & Sunday 10am – 4pm. Last entry is 3.30pm.

My kids loved running through the canola, playing hide and seek and watching the busy bees doing their thing.

You can stop and rest under the big gumtree to admire the canola surrounding you. We loved the quirky pink table and chairs!

At PetTeet Park there are also some friendly farm animals to enjoy, including emus, horses, pigs and sheep. The day we visited there was also a 3 day old lamb for us to pat – if only my bag was big enough to smuggle her home.

Phone reception is very limited, so it is a great opportunity to switch off, take photos and enjoy the canola. There is also only one toilet which attracted a nice line of people.

Wildflower season is also in full bloom from August to October, for more information I recommend visiting the York Visitors Centre. During our visit we also stopped for an ice cream at York Ice Cream Co and a play at  Pioneer Avon Park.
