We need more trips – Going overseas is still a bit restricted – so may as well use my 4WD for some local trips instead!
Get your gear off Road / family out of the house kids off their iPads. Maybe day trip up in the hills, beach or overnighter somewhere? Here are some ideas for Day trips: – Moore river state forest, – Mundaring, – Willbinga, – North, South, East…

JulSun 3rdWandoo Woodlands day trip
A days outing meandering in the Wandoo Woodlands off Yarra Road. Good day for the ladies to take the wheel! Relaxed day traversing the many tracks in the Woodlands. There are plenty of wash outs and creek beds to keep you busy. For the more adventurous there is always Piggery Road or you can head back down the Power Lines but you are on your own if you decide to either, while you are getting bogged and muddy, we will be cooking up a sausage sizzle for lunch so bring some bangers, buns and something to wash it down with. Better bring a chair, weather permitting we may light a fire. If it is raining on the day we may have to postpone the day or find a pub to have lunch in, that is open for discussion. Meeting at the Lakes Road House @ 09:30hrs for a 10:00hrs departure. Address: Cnr Great Eastern Hwy & Great Southern Hwy, The Lakes Location: 16.6km East of Mundaring.

AugTBASilo Art Trip – 5 day trip – expressions of interest
We are planning on doing the silo art trail. Dates haven’t been set as we want to gauge expression of interest, at this stage we are looking at August/ September 2022.
Day 1: The plan would be to leave Saturday stopping in Northam and then staying the night in Merredin or surrounding area.
Day 2: Leaving Merredin to head to Katanning and staying in the town or at camp sites. We will try and stay at Lake Ewlyamartup Camp ground. Lake Ewlyamartup > Shire of Katanning  Info here
Day 3: Leave Katanning, go through Pingrup, Newdegate and staying in Ravensthorpe or surrounding area.
Day 4: Ravensthorpe to Albany.
Day 5: Albany to Perth. We may be staying down in Albany for a few days so your more than welcome to stay or head home at you own leisure. We are looking at down about 300kms a day.  At this stage we will be staying in caravan parks in the major towns. There may be a night or 2 where we may stay at campsites. We are open to other points of interest along the way.  We will be travelling with a 4/5 month old so sleep may be interrupted at night. Price is roughly $30 a night for powered sites.
