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…

Silo 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.
