Travel through the Murchison area of WA where we visit the historic town of Cue; Walga Rock (claimed to be the second largest monolith in Australia, and which contains a wall with an extensive gallery of indigenous art); and the seaside tourist town of Kalbarri. As it’s wildflower time, keep an eye out for wildflowers along the way!
We leave Perth and travel via the picturesque Swan Valley to New Norcia for a morning tea break, then continue on via Dalwallinu and Wubin along the Great Northern Highway to Paynes Find. After a lunch break we continue on to the gold mining towns of Mount Magnet and Cue. (D)
Today we visit the ruins of big Bell, a once a thriving outback town; and Walga Rock, a monolith which is 5 km around the base and 1.5 km long, the second largest in Australia.
