I got a heap of photos to go through from Jerramungup to Denmark. Half of the things I did I cannot remember now. I visited the Malleefowl Center at Ongerup which was wonderful where I saw a couple of Malleefowl in captivity. I now know how rare they are. I camped at the Stirling Range Retreat for a couple of nights and then went down to the Porongurup Range National Park.

Mount Trio comprises three separate peaks linked together by a plateau. Montane thickets on the upper levels of the peaks put on a colourful display of wildflowers in spring and early summer.

From Albany I went east to Cheyne’s Beach which had a massive array of coastal heath country.

I was going to stay at the camp at Shannon but I was attacked by about five thousand March Flies, so I fled that horror. I stopped at Snake Gully and the Big Tree Grove to see all the big trees.
