Perth to Wongan Hills via Toodyay

Our original plan was to drive as far north as Mullewa, but now that we are on the road and enjoying being out we may change our minds and just find places to go for walks without driving quite that far. We started out in our usual measured way, leaving home at about 10.30 and getting fuel on Great Eastern Highway as the first step.

We made Toodyay our first stop. There is good parking in the town for RVs, a good IGA (and we needed a few groceries), and, best of all, a really great bakery. It even has bread – and often in country towns a ‘bakery’ will sell pies and cakes, but not bread.

A pity we are well stocked at the moment and couldn’t actually buy any. I went for the special, a corned beef pie and coffee, Stephen had the same pie and a choc milk. We shared a black forrest donut afterwards.

We enjoyed the travelling today. There was little traffic once we left Toodyay and no trucks at all. It was sunny, with a coolish breeze. We had about three other stops on the way, apart from our lunch.

There were lots of golden fields along the way.

Wongan Hills offers free parking for self contained RVs. It is on an old basketball court. There is a caravan park in town as well. We walked down the main street to check out the Art Deco hotel and the Visitors’ Centre which we will visit tomorrw.
