Mullewa

Saturday 30th August 2008, Mullewa.

So ends a relaxing week at Geraldton. We have now once again met up with Peter and Vicki, from Tassie, and have travelled inland with them for a few days to check out the wild flowers. Mullewa is 100 kilometres east of Geraldton (see map), and is reputed to be one of the better areas to see the flowers. We have had a look around today and are quite impressed with what we have seen. We have been given an extra treat being at Mullewa this weekend as they have had a wild flower show at the town hall that concluded today, and the town show was also on today and we were treated to a fire-works display this evening as we are camped across the road from the show grounds. The wild flowers are definitely something to see when in the area as they can be seen over an extremely large area of the state, they don’t appear as just the odd flower here and there, they come in paddocks and paddocks of them. I dare say that we will be seeing quite a bit more of the flowers over the coming week or two until we get down to Perth area. It also happens that because of the dry weather over the past couple of years, and the rain they have had here recently, this year is reportedly the best wild flower season they have had for decades.
