Quairading walk

By Tracy

Because today was a beautiful, sunny spring day, and we knew the wildflowers would be out in greater numbers than last time, and because it was my birthday, we went for a long walk in the Quairading Nature Reserve.

We've visited there before, but today was the first time we walked all the way to Nookaminnie Rock, which has breathtaking views and is well worth the extra distance.

The woodland walk...

Everlastings in their millions -- the photo shows only a small section and can't do it justice. Eventually you walk a path through acres of them to your left and right.
