October 2017: A Brief Trip into WA's Wheatbelt (Part 1)

It was still a little cold but rumour had it that Spring was here and some wildflowers were out, so we decided to dust off the van and look around our own backyard.

We enjoy WA's Wheatbelt and we thought we would visit some more of these small towns that have built community caravan parks to attract people like us. 

However, the first night would be in a campsite called Gnaala Mia. It is in the Dryandra forest just next to Congelin and only a couple of hours away from home.




We have been to Congelin many times, even before it was turned into a proper campsite by the Dept of Parks & Wildlife. Gnaala Mia is very new and we hadn't been there before.

There are sites for caravans, campers and tents and a very nice camp kitchen as well as drop toilets. Each campsite has its own firepit. Firewood was provided by the Rangers.

No power and no water, but that's OK by us. Our van has all we need.










There were only about 4 other campers there. It was nice and quiet.

In the morning light I took some photos of some of the wildflowers.
