Dandaragan to Moora

Another quiet ride along a very pleasant country road.

We were pleased to discover that amongst many of the natural roadside reserves there was an abundance of flowers to stop and look at. If you were in a car you would miss many of these flowers, as you need to walk about a metre into the reserves to see a lot of them. Some of the flowers reveal themselves to us as we pass by their scent, others are big and very obvious whilst others subtly hide amongst the grass and low shrubs and require you to look very carefully around your feet. We have been told that the flowers are coming to an end, it therefore would be truly amazing to be here when they are at their peak. The flowers turned out to be a pleasant distraction from the strong head winds we experienced for most of the ride.

We arrived in Moora just before lunch and followed our noses to the bakery and relaxed in the park opposite before heading back to the Caravan Park. After settling in we went for a short walk and look around Moora. A picturesque little place.

Zoom into the map and use the 'Satellite' layer to see our new location.

Fence post on Dandaragan Road

Along much of Dandaragan Road there were narrow strips of natural vegetation such as that on the left of the road. Within these patches of bush there is an abundance of flowers. In contrast on the other side of the road there is often very little diversity with either crops or improved pasture.
