Dalwallinu & Mt Magnet












Our first stop today was Dalwallinu for lunch. Dalwallinu is about 321kms from Perth. It is a wheat and sheep area, A lovely town, it has been improved since our last visit. Here is a phot of Bill having lunch at our “Patio”. We had a walk around town, visited the local craft shop and picked up a magazine. We travelled then until we reached Mt Gibson and stopped for afternoon tea. Mt Gibson is 85km NE of Wubin or 68km SW of Paynes find. After a quick cuppa and a slice courtesy of Beryl {thanks heap it was delicious) we kept winding our way to Mt Magnet arriving about 5pm.
We camped on a truckies area near the BP garage snd set up for the night. We wandered around town taking photos and taking in the scenery. Mt Magnet is a mining town but it is quite quirky. Note the Pick Axe Store and the Cinema. We travelled 435km today and are now 637kms from home.
