After wondering if we would ever get away again this year in the caravan, we are finally on the road and looking forward to seeing the wildflowers and getting into some warmer weather.
We timed it with watching the West Coast Eagles win over Greater Western Sydney in Perth and are staying for a few days around Wongan Hills before heading north to catch up with family who are also on the road in their caravans.
Our first stop was Noble Falls. The water is flowing and it was a very peaceful rest stop.
Further north the canola is in full bloom.
In Wongan Hills there are several walk trails that are putting on a colourful display at the moment. The Wongan Wildflower Walk and the Christmas Rock Walk trails are both putting on a good display of colour at the moment.
And there was a lot of delicate orchids to be seen.
Christmas Rock on the edge of town was once the water collection point for the steam trains that serviced the area and beyond. Small walls were constructed around the rock and then the water was channelled into a dam to be used by the steam engines.
From the lookout at Mt O’Brien the farmland is either a lovely crop green or that distinctive Canola yellow.
The weather is gloriously warm and our next stop is Payne’s Find.
That’s great that you can get out and about finally. I love the Australian landscape and the wildflowers are stunning.
There are so many stunning wildflower colours.
Beautiful photos as always. Very jealous!!
Thanks Rob. Stay safe.
