Are you making the most of Western Australia’s magical floral bounty!
Heading out off Perth, the lush green wine region of the Swan Valley will take us to the untouched bush & wetlands of the Chittering Valley, in the northern hills of the Darling Range.
Our first stop is Brigadoon and it’s rugged Bell Rapids, a treat all year round. As we continue our journey up the Great Northern Hwy, who could resist a quick break at the famous Bindoon Bakehaus and café before arriving at the Abbey of New Norcia. Established in 1847, New Norcia is the only monastic town in Australia, take a moment to appreciate and discover the history behind the Spanish architecture style monastery. The seasonal wild flowers, fresh local produce and beautiful countryside will make this journey a day to remember, and perhaps a place to revisit!
The wildflower selection around the Darling Range offers a splendour of photography opportunities.
The town offers an abundance of historical old buildings to test your architectural photographic creativity. Also monks can be seen time-to-time walking outside the monastery, please respect their privacy.
