York in Western Australia is one of the oldest and most picturesque settlements in the state. Aside from its historic buildings which give it much of its charm there is the landscape which comprises of rolling hills, forest and meadows. This landscape is set in a transitional zone between the Darling Range to the west and the Wheatbelt proper to the east which means there is a huge variety of flora and fora. One of the families of plants that can be found taking advantage of the transition are the terrestrial native orchids of which Western Australia has around 400 species which is half of the 800 species found in Australia.
