Not very scary Scarecrows in Balingup!

On our recent caravan trip we visited the lovely little town of Balingup which sits in a valley on the Balingup Brook.

The area around Balingup is known for its fruit and vegetable growing and together with beef cattle and dairy farming the little town seems to have a vibrant and active community.

Lovely gardens and trees in their autumn colours were everywhere.

Balingup recently hosted its annual event – the Small Farm Field Day – which together with the town has the scarecrow as a whimsical emblem. The not very scary scarecrows were lining the main street – not sure if they are there all year around or just out for the field day. Nevertheless they were a great sight.

Later in the year Balingup also hosts a Medieval Carnivale which we hope to attend. And on our next visit we must see the Golden Valley Tree Park which is set on 60 hectares and has a unique collection of interesting trees from all over the world.

    Very pretty scarecows! They seem to be welcoming visitors… instead of scaring crows.
