Camp spot 22 km NE of Wubin or 131 km SW of Paynes Find, just north of Rabbit Proof Fence, Road.
There is good internet and mobile phone connection here, and we are now only 40 km from Dalwallinu, our next stop to exhibit.
Excellent wildflowers in the area, the pink ones are highly fragrant but attract mosquitoes at dawn and dusk and in shady places so wear a protective covering if outside at these times or in these conditions.
Gibber, rock- and pebble-littered area of arid or semi-arid country in Australia. The rocks are generally angular fragments formed from broken up duricrust, usually silcrete, a hardened crust of soil cemented by silica (SiO2). The gravel cover may be only one rock fragment deep, or it may consist of several layers buried in fine-grained material that is thought to have been blown in. A gibber is generally considered a result of mechanical weathering because silica is almost inert to chemical weathering.
We had our first rain since we left Victoria in April this year, today. As I am now in the wildflower area of Western Australia, I almost welcome the rain as the wildflower show depends on it. It is still warm even though we have now traveled a long way south and are only a day’s drive from Perth although we will not be near Perth until the start of September.
