We have been lucky to obtain a grant from the Road Safety Commission and our message this year is “Fatigue” – Don’t drive tired!  We are planning on having a demonstration by the Fire Brigade and Ambulance on how they use the jaws of life.

There will be bus tours to Reynoldson Reserve to see the beautiful Verticordia.  Buses will run on the hour and you can book your spot (on the day) at the Visitors Centre.  While you’re there make sure you try our beautiful devonshire tea with freshly made scones, jam & cream.

Saturday night

Stargazing at the Wongan Hills airstrip.  Wongan Hills has just recently become an AstroTourism Town and we are lucky to have Astrotourism WA Founder, Carol Redford coming to tell us all about the stars & planets.  Discover our amazing night sky.  Bookings can me made at https://www.trybooking.com/XUOT
