Day 1   Wed 13th          Home – Hopetown (L/D)

Travelling from home today, we stop for morning tea at Lake Muir Observatory, part of the Muir-Byenup wetland system and recognised as a Wetland of International Importance. Mt Barker is the gateway to the amazing South Coast and is framed by the spectacular Stirling (to the north) and Porongurup (to the south) Ranges. Lunch today is at Wellstead Heritage Museum, which draws you into the Wellstead Legacy. Early settlers labored tirelessly alongside their countrymen, both squires and convicts alike, often enduring extreme adversity to build an ethic, a pride, a collective spirit that would eventually forge our nation. Enjoy an afternoon tour of Bremmer Bay and the delights the area holds for our adventure. Overnight at the Bremer Bay Motel.

Day 2 Thurs 14th  Hopetown – Ravensthorpe (B/L/D)

Travelling today through the shire of Gnowangerup, we stop at the Yongergnow Malleefowl Centre, which has been operational for over twenty years and was specifically created to conserve and research the endangered Malleefowl and its habitat. It is possible to see the Malleefowl in its natural environment and, if it is breeding season, to view the newly born chicks from a safe distance. Staying in Hopetown, Mary Ann Harbour was named in November 1865 by the sealer James Sale on the cutter Mary Ann. The Mary Ann was owned by whaling master John Thomas, who named it after his eldest daughter. Hopetown was established in 1900 as the port servicing the Phillips River goldfield, named after the first Governor General of Australia, John  Hope, 7th Earl of Hopetoun.

Day 3 Fri 15th Ravensthorpe – Bremer (B/D)

Today’s first stop is Fitzgerald National Park, one of the largest and most botanically significant national parks in Australia. Within the park are found nearly 20 per cent of Western Australia’s flora species, many of which occur only within its boundaries. Morning tea in its lush surroundings and then depart for the Ravensthorpe Wildflower Show. Free time for you to enjoy the Ravensthorpe Herbarium, situated next door to the Wildflower Show which holds many hundreds of botanical specimens collected from within the Ravensthorpe Shire. Experts on the local flowers are on hand each day for identification queries. Stop and buy your own lunch, Devonshire tea or warming soup. Browse the many stalls for books, cards, and products that feature the work of local artisans. Overnight at Hopetown Motel.

Departing Hopetown, we stop for morning tea at Lake King, which boasts some of the southern Wheatbelt’s best displays of Western Australian wildflowers. Onto Lake Grace, recognised for the most diverse flora in the world and named after 16-year-old Grace Bussell, the heroine who rescued people of the shipwreck of the Georgette. Off to Dumbleyung, whose name is of Aboriginal origin, coming from “Dambeling” which possibly means “large lake or inland sea” (although another source suggests it came from “dumbung”, a game played with bent sticks and a hard piece of fruit). We then meander through Wagin and Collie, making our way home
