Bremer Bay

We are in Bremer Bay and I decided to go on a wildflower tour out at Tozer’s Bush Camp, a 700 acre property of natural beauty.

Wildflowers are one thing we always have a “stop the car” moment for. While I quickly rush out and take the photo, Jim patiently sits in the car gazing off into the horizon – again.

The tour is guided by Jeni, a botanist, who was very knowledgeable and such a delightful person.  We spent two hours in the morning, then had our lunch, followed by another two and a half hours enjoying the beauty of the Aussie bush.  We had to contend with intermittent showers and it was quite windy so taking photos was a challenge.

At this time of year the orchids are nearly done but we did manage to find some lovely specimens. Jeni had us out looking for any new sightings that could be added to their next tour.

The diversity of flowers was astounding. Here are just a few for you to see.

I would certainly recommend the tour to anyone in the area when the wildflowers are putting on their display.

    I’ve recently heard about Tozer’s Bush Camp and we are heading south next week in our caravan. Might have to check it out.

      We are staying in Bremer Bay as we wanted water and power – but it is a good option otherwise. The caravan sites looked lovely with the wildflowers in between each bay. Let me know what it is like if you decide to stay there.

    I love the Australian bush. The flowers that seem to be growing out of the sand look amazing.

    • Kerry & Jim says:

      Yes amazing. They were a type of Banksia that flower from tubers which are underground. Wish I could have spent more time there but the weather wasn’t good. I will have to return one day.

    Beautiful photos Kerry. Perhaps Jim could do crack the code or use his AFL Live app. to relive past glories while he waits.
