The Flynn Australian Adventure 2012 travel blog









Another early start as we took the motor home to the Bridgestone Tyre Centre for a tyre rotation - as a front wheel drive, the motor home is severe on the front tyres. The weather was wet and windy with moments of sun. We travelled the 20kms to Greenough historical site, South of Geraldton. Here is the leaning tree (all the trees are lopsided around here with the continual wind!) The Greenough site is brilliant - national trust has preserved the site of the 150 year old town. We spent all morning at the site - sometimes running between buildings to beat the rain. The two churches are still in use as is the town hall. Amazing to think that up until 1958, the catholic church was still running a boarding school run by the nuns. The boys really enjoyed stepping back in history as the buildings were set up with period furniture and story boards. We then drove south past the busy town of Dongara before turning onto the Indian Ocean drive to Leeman where we had lunch down by the sea (no real beach but a playground for the boys to play on). The weather was starting to clear nicely as we then drove to Jurien Bay (talk about new housing developments on the coast!) and to Cervantes. The showers passed over for the rest of the afternoon which made drying the washing difficult. Such is life if that is all you have to worry about.
