The Shearing Shed now used as Community Hall

Saturday 22nd November we arrived at Galena about 1 o’clock after two short stops at Wooramel and Overlander Roadhouses for morning tea and lunch. We unloaded Jimny and explored the nearby River.

The Local Ostrich

The Riverside Sanctuary has short stay accommodation. They have converted the shearing shed into a community room and the nearby quarters as backpacker accommodation with a few cabins dotted throughout the farm and plenty of space for Caravans and Motor homes.

The Pet Emu

Apart from the usual farm animals they also house a resident Ostrich an
d a couple of Emus.

The Local Lizard

There are also many Kangaroos in the surrounding paddocks. It is still a working farm and they only finished harvesting their grain that morning. A bus load of backpackers joined us in the evening and they enjoyed a meal of beef and kangaroo shepherd’s pie. They left us about 8am and we left not long after.

The Murchison River

We called into Ajana a few minutes later to visit a farm that Bill used to work on in his misspent youth. We ended up going to their son’s house for lunch a bit further up the track and about 4 o’clock we continued down to Kalbarri and have parked up just outside of the township near the information centre for the night. Talk again soon Jan
