The Town Parking area featuring Murals and Morawa Town Hall built in 1939
Morawa 26th and 27th November.- Morawa is mainly a farming community situated in the heart of wildflower country in WA’s mid west 178 kms from Geraldton. We have arrived too late to see the wildflowers as they have finished flowering for the season. Although we went to dinner last night at the “Everlastings Restaurant” and there were some everlastings still green and blooming. It was Alan’s birthday so we celebrated with a nice dinner, conversation and a couple of drinks. We were joined by his lovely wife Lillian and Dennis and his other half Wendy.

The Koolanooka Minesite was reopened in 2004 by the Mid West Corporation and has been moving iron ore fines stockpiles through the Geraldton Port. Shipments are mainly sent to China. The first 1,000.000 tonnes have already been shipped. The Caravan Park is operated by the Shire of Morawa and I can highly recommend it. It is beautiful clean and shady, nice showers and BBQ areas and excellent (and cheap) laundry facilities. It is one of the best Parks we have stayed in so far. Tomorrow we are headed for Goomalling which is 268kms from here. Watch out Sis we are coming to town.

Talk again soon Jan
