What we'll do
[masked] if you have any queries. Ok so its not strenuous but its fun!
Our fabulous annual wildflower outing!
Last year we had 18 people. Slightly Different format this year. So we car pool at Whitfords station, at 8am then set off for the first wildflower walk, about 45 mins drive. Then we head to the first winery. This has a big open fire and a lovely wine cellar/restaurant so we have a wine tasting then a brunch or early lunch.
Then we set off for this fabulous wildflower reserve and spend 2-3 hours wandering, admiring and photographing. Wear covered shoes and jeans or solid trousers, we do walk through the bush to photograph orchids etc.
Then we will head off to a second winery for a tasting and/or coffee, tea/late arvo snack depending on what people vote for. Then we have special permission to explore their bushland which apparently is also really good for wildflowers. We then have a further option of a nearby winery with a band in the late arvo. Its a fabulous day out!!! At no cost except what you choose to spend!
Here is last year's write up! ...... winery served fabulous and timely food and wine as always and for a good price, as 18 of us sat on the very picturesque deck or stood by the log fire! Hi to Michelle, Merle, Luan, Leon, Luke, Nadine, Jacinta, Jennifer, Jason, Jean, Jeanette and Adrian, Lynn, Kay, Sue, Caroline, David, later Richard and Naomi and Susan stopped there too. Welcome to meetup the newbies! ...... was super green and..... about two weeks behind peak maybe due to rain and cold. Duncan at Harris Organic winery was a bit grumpy and Google lied (again) so we had a farce with 5 of us on a rock outcrop waving and cooeeing to four below thinking they were a different four of us who were coeeing from the gate! The flowers were the purple blue yellow white stage, and were beautiful, what there were. Weather was perfect and Luke has a new name: Mr echidna! Yep there was one! A good day out, thankyou everybody! And especially the drivers. Please post your wildflower photos!
