Our first few days we have spent at Congelin Campground, a bush camp about 20 km from Williams.
Tracks and walking trails take you through the Dryandra Woodlands where white barked wandoo, powder barked wandoo and sheoak are home to many native birds and animals.
These little Scarlet Robins are a favourite. The females are much harder to photograph as they are light grey and blend into the trees very well.
The site was once a timber mill cutting wooden railway sleepers for use in both WA and SA. The rail siding was also used to transport livestock to and from the area. The siding closed in 1957 and there are still a few reminders of days gone by.
And after a days exploring there is nothing better than to sit with friends and enjoy the quiteness of the bush.
