The towns of Three Springs and Eneabba which we passed through on the way here are very modest but there are still a lot of wildflowers in the bush so it was a lovely drive. This is a bush caravan park, with a strong commitment to land care and preservation of local fauna and flora. We arrived in time to join the 2-hr guided walk by the resident amateur botanist who imparted a wealth of information about the various trees and flowers, particularly methods of pollination. It was a fascinating talk. This morning we walked out to the A
rrowsmith River and the Sand Stone Waterfall, 5 km return, and still within the property. This area was burnt (deliberately) a few years ago and the fire has generated a remarkable show of flowers. We also wandered down to the wetland at dusk and watched a heron fishing for his supper. We have really enjoyed our stay here and will be sorry to leave.
Geraldton tomorrow – back to the Big Smoke.
