Week 21 - Purposeful Meandering around Oz

Whyalla – Wilpena Pound – Port Broughton – Point Turton
Kilometres          25997 – 27187 km

We opted to have a stopover in Whyalla on Monday, unfortunately the weather wasn’t too favourable as it spent much of Sunday night and all of Monday blowing a gale. The van constantly shook and our few loads of washing either dried in minutes or ended up on the ground and needed re-washing. For a few hours in the morning I headed for a bit caching while Leonie used a few hours in the afternoon to start our Christmas shopping. We quickly realized how hard it would be to keep presents a surprise from the kids, but so far they are none the wiser…. Once again we took advantage of the vanpark’s oven with Leonie baking some cookies and muffins while cooked dinner in the oven. Its funny how you miss the simple things when traveling.
Wangara Lookout - Wilpena Pound
Tuesday we headed north to Port Augusta and onto the Flinders Ranges, much of this area we’d visited some 11 years ago when Sam was only 3 months old. As we passed through Quorn we snaked alongside the Pichi Richi rail line which is famous for its steep steam train ride up the mountain. Another stop along the way was the township of Hawker where the kids learned about a seismograph and earthquakes. Apparently the area is renowned for having one of the highest earth movements in Australia. We saw how the needle had recorded a very small tremor only 24 hours earlier. By mid-afternoon we were at Wilpena Pound and were soon setup for a few days. While Leonie took the kids for a quick swim in the nearby resort pool, I walked out to the rim of the pound and took some beautiful sunset pictures of the area.
Flinders Ranges
On Wednesday morning we were heading out for a walk into the pound. The kids were intrigued to read the story of the woman who lived in the valley homestead with her 4 brothers and 3 sisters helping look after some 20000 sheep. Walking to the nearest lookout we were amazed by the views and the various rock formations which make up the Flinders Ranges…. Back at the van the kids had a quick swim before we headed out for a bit of 4WDriving through the Bunyeroo and Brachina Gorges. Once again the sheer magnitude of the area was hard to comprehend…. We finished another hard day sightseeing with a beautiful BBQ and a bottle of our Margaret River wine.
Hughes Enginehouse - Moonta 1865
It was moving day once again for us. Our 2nd visit to Wilpena Pound had been so much fun. We had a good laugh last night as the couple only 50m away from us decided to let their animal instincts get the better of them at 10pm ensuring the whole camp ground heard them…. Heading out of the Flinders ranges we freakishly bumped into some of our traveling friends as they headed into the pound. After a quick chat/catch-up we were both on our ways again. After reaching Port Augusta we headed south detouring via the Mount Remarkable and then down into Port Pirie where we’d intended to stay the night, however with the smelter shutdown happening accommodation was tight so opted for the more relaxed, more picturesque Port Broughton…. After setting up we all had a swim, the kids played in the park while we enjoyed an extended happy hour.  
Port Broughton foreshore
Friday was predicted to be a scorcher so we planned a lazy day by the water. We had a beautiful morning walk along the foreshore precinct and boat ramp. Many of the locals of this sleepy hamlet were taking to the water in their boats and we wished we could be part of it… The early morning conditions were perfect. For us we spent most the day by the water, either the van pool or the peninsula foreshore. We took the kids for a spot of fishing but we’d missed the best time as an afternoon breeze pushed across the bay making fishing unpleasant, but the kids never seem to mind….. By days end we were all a little red from a day in the sun.
Point Turton harbour
Saturday saw us moving further south into the Yorke Peninsula, there was no respite in the hot weather as the temps hit 35deg. We spent much of the day sightseeing through the towns of Walleroo, Kadina and then Moonta where we took the kids to a geocache we’d placed there some 11 years ago. Continuing south we had lunch at Port Victoria, while we were here the local fire brigade were activated to a nearby bushfire. The kids were amazed to hear the old fire activation siren ring out across the town. Somehow technology hadn’t reached this sleepy hollow…… Heading further south we made our way to Point Turton where we decided to base ourselves for the next few days. This picturesque town sits on the Hardwicke Bay with the caravan park having water frontage and views over the fishing jetty. Once setup we took the kids fishing off the jetty where we spotted numerous stingrays, squids and a plethora of fish…… It certainly was a nice way to finish the day.
Towering cliffs of Cape Spencer
Sunday saw much of the van park empty out as the local holiday makers headed for home. We spent the morning relaxing by the van as once again temperatures sawed into the mid 30’s, but just as we headed out sightseeing the south-westerly wind and clouds were blowing in cooling the day. We drove through the various fishing hamlets before heading to the most southern point of the peninsula. Cape Spencer has a number of lighthouses and spectacular beaches, but the weather had deterred our enthusiasm for a swim or simply for being outside the car….. Returning to the van we decided to finish the week sampling the local seafood at the nearby tavern.
Sunday night dinner view
It’s been such an enjoyable week.

Week 20 - Purposeful Meandering around Oz

Whyalla – Port Lincoln – Whyalla
Kilometres          24915 – 25997 km

Monday promised so much, we would finally get some appropriate treatment on Leonie’s busted finger. The fracture clinic in Whyalla didn’t open till midday so we spent the morning grabbing a few caches and sightseeing around town. At lunch time we dropped Leonie off while the kids and I headed for a dose of plastic food as they’d been pestering for some since we left Perth. With their fix complete we spent the afternoon catching up on some laundry as we patiently waited to hear from Leonie.  After a few text messages and some 4 hours later we picked Leonie up from the hospital. She was furious!!! The specialist, who’d been so keen to see her, now fobbed her off suggesting a couple of weeks rest would suffice……3 hospitals, 2 orthopaedic surgeons, 2 sets of x-rays and 1800km later we have decided to use traditional healing methods and simply splint the finger…… Grrrr! Needless to say, we spent the rest of the day staying out of Mummy’s way. LOL
Port Lincoln
It was time to put the events of the past week behind us and get our holiday back on track. We decided to see a bit more of the Eyre Peninsula, it’d been 11 years since we’d been to the peninsula so we headed to Port Lincoln where we thought we’d spend a few days adjusting to the more relaxed lifestyle of a traveller…. After a couple of hours driving we were in Port Lincoln and setting up right on the water’s edge. The kids were keen for a spot of fishing and as there was a jetty nearby we spent a brief time satisfying their urge, but they’re quickly learning the art of fishing requires patience. Needless to say we didn’t fish for long. Back at the van we had a few hours r&r before heading into Port for a few supplies.
Old Mill - Port Lincoln
On Wednesday we had a bit of a lazy morning around the van, the kids had to get their schoolwork up-to-date which seems to be a constant battle. Eventually we were able to head out to do a bit of the sightseeing around Port Lincoln, the first thing you notice is the huge grain silos and port facility which occupies much of the town. Nearly all the grain grown on the peninsula is exported via this facility. We had a look around town, saw the Makybe Diva statue and the Old Mill before heading up to “Winters Hill Lookout”. From here the view looking south over the nearby islands and the Spencer Gulf is spectacular… As our day ended a huge westerly change rolled in bringing with it howling winds and a couple of thunderstorms.
Fur Seals - Whalers Way
The severe weather persisted all night and at times we wondered whether we’d be blown into the bay. As Thursday dawned we woke to rain scrawls which blew in one after another. The kids were soon snuggled up on the lounge and watching a DVD as we prepared for our first wash-out day of the trip…. However to our surprise and delight by late morning the skies were clearing and we were able to head out to a privately owned property called the “Whalers Way” which is the southernmost point of the peninsula. This area was once used as a refuge for whaling ships, but today it boasts a colony of fur seals which sun-baked on the rocks and playing in the water only metres from us, it also features a number of spectacular natural formations and towering cliffs.
Theakstone Crevasse - Whalers Way
Friday should have seen us on the move again but for the sake of a 45min drive to our next destination we opted to stay in Port Lincoln and simply extend the distance of our day trips…. After having breakfast overlooking the bay we headed off to Coffin Bay. This sleepy fishing hollow is renowned for its oysters and fishing. The resident population of 400 swells to over 4000 in the peak summer months and we could see why. We stopped at the town jetty where we watched some locals bag fish after fish straight off the jetty. At one point the fishermen had to fight with shags as they duck dived for the baited hook or stole the fish off the line. We continued following the coastline around to Farm Beach and onto Gallipoli Beach, so named as it was used to film the above mentioned movie. We sat high on the cliffs having a picnic and pondered how difficult but brave our diggers must have been 100 years ago in Turkey…. Heading back through Coffin Bay we were fortunate enough to catch up with our regular traveling friends as they setup in Coffin Bay. The kids played for a few hours while we relaxed enjoying some oysters and a cool drink. We completed a great day by having dinner out on the town in Port Lincoln.
Gallipoli Beach SA
Saturday started really early for us, we were woken by numerous thunderstorms that caught many of the van owners off guard, we were up at 4.30am grabbing anything we could to bring it in out of the rain as the sky was lit up by a spectacular lightning show. When we resurfaced later that morning there were clear skies and no hint of the previous nights downpour. We headed into town about mid-morning to do a bit of shopping and check out the nearby marina which is where many of the large fishing trawlers dock. It was amazing to see so many trawlers docked in the one spot. The money sitting idle was incredible, there’s certainly money to be made in deep sea fishing. No wonder Port Lincoln has more millionaires per head than anywhere else in Australia…. We came back to the van by mid-afternoon where the kids once again caught up on some schoolwork. The afternoon breeze made for a beautiful afternoon to laze around and watch the many boats out on the bay.
Tuna Trawlers - Port Lincoln
Sunday was moving day, so there was no lazy Sunday mornings at our abode today. We’d packed up and were on the road by 9am. As we headed back to Whyalla we stopped at a few of the small fishing towns that hug the coastline on the Eyre Peninsula. Tumby Bay, Arno Bay and Cowell were a few of the ones we stopped at with Tumby Bay being one of those havens where we could easily spend a few months relaxing. By mid-afternoon we were back at Whyalla and had checked in to the same park where we’d stayed last week. We quickly setup in an attempt to beat the afternoon storm. With nothing planned for the rest of the afternoon we spent the time relaxing and enjoying an extended happy hour.
Tumby Bay Jetty
As another week draws to an end we’ve certainly enjoyed our relaxing week. Leonie is coping well with her finger in the splint and by this time next week we hope to have the splint off and start using a buddy strap.

Until next week, ciao!

Week 19 - Purposeful Meandering around Oz

Esperance – Nullarbor (x2) – Ceduna – Whyalla
Kilometres          22893 – 24915 km

What a week!
At the end of last week we were hopeful Leonie’s broken finger would have a simple outcome and we could share a few days with friends at Cape Le Grand NP, how wrong were we? Early Monday morning Leonie was at Esperance Hospital for an x-ray and the results weren’t good. There was a clean break in the pinkie finger just above the hand but the bones hadn’t re-aligned properly. This resulted in plenty of discussion between patient, nurses, local doctors and an orthopaedic surgeon in Perth. The short story being Leonie’s hand was placed in a half hand cast requiring another x-ray in 3 days to check bone alignment. This could be done in Esperance and then possibly surgery in Perth or we could dash across the Nullarbor and try our luck in Ceduna SA, some 1400km to the east. We chose the latter….. We paid for another night in Esperance while preparing for our trip across the Nullarbor, we bought food and fuel and stocked up on water ready for the demanding trip.
How exciting
Tuesday we were up very early and on the road, the plan was to do as many kilometres as we were comfortable with and then bush camp somewhere just off the highway.  We would still try and squeeze in a few sightseeing stops as who knows when we’d be back over this way. Reaching Norseman by mid-morning we restocked with fuel again before heading east onto the Nullarbor Plains. The heavily wooden areas either side of the road soon gave way to the flat grassed plains with barely a tree in sight. In parts the road seemed to go straight on for miles and miles, rolling over hill after hill, till we reached a sign saying the next 90 mile stretch of road was the longest straight stretch in Australia. That proved to be the highlight of our 1st boring day on the Nullarbor… Towards the end of the day we stopped at a blowhole, not as we know them, but an earth blowhole where cool air rushes out of a 1m round hole in the ground…. Just on dusk we found a very nice bush camp and were happy to call it quits for the day.
One hole on the Nullarbor Links course
Wednesday started with us feeling a little flat. Driving the Nullarbor to meet a deadline isn’t fun but we put this behind us and were soon on the road with no change in the scenery. We had a couple of stops at various Nullarbor Golf Links holes, these make up the longest golf course in the world simply because it’s a few hundred km’s between each hole and it stretches right across the Nullarbor. We’d soon reached Eucla and the WA/SA border where we stopped for the obligatory photo and to reminisce on our 2½ months in WA. Soon afterwards we got our first views of the Great Australian Bight. This continued for the next couple a hundred kilometres, culminating at one stop where we saw the towering cliffs of the Bight and the Southern Ocean smashing into the base some 100m below. By days end we’d found another bush camp just near the “Head of the Bight” and setup as storms threatened to lash the area.
WA/SA border
We were now on SA time which meant the mornings were a lot darker and more conducive to sleeping except we needed to be on the road. The remaining 200km into Ceduna passed uneventfully. Seeing civilisation slowly approach felt funny, first there were a few fences, then sown fields, power poles, a few farm houses and finally the township of Ceduna….. The Nullarbor Plain had finally been conquered….. We checked into a Ceduna caravan park and waited for Leonie’s appointment time, the kids did a bit of fishing off the nearby wharf. By late afternoon Leonie had been to hospital to see the Dr and once again the news was bad, however this time it was the doctor’s inexperience and her reluctance that deterred us. She advised us to come back tomorrow after which time she could consult with an Adelaide specialist.
Bunda Cliffs - The Great Australian Bight
It was back to the hospital on Friday and once again the Dr was full of suggestions but with a glaring lack of experience to perform any of them so we err’d on the side of caution and with a nurse’s suggestion we would take our case to Whyalla…. We spent the next few hours seeing a few sights around Ceduna. As its wheat harvesting time the Ceduna port is a buzz with ships queuing to transport wheat offshore…..Our friends from Esperance had arrived in town which gave the kids an afternoon of playtime and the parents an enjoyable happy hour. We all shared fish n chips by the wharf as the sun set over the bay.
Ceduna Jetty
Saturday saw us on the road again, we’d deviated from our original plans and were heading straight to Whyalla where hopefully Leonie could get her finger attended to by a specialist. The drive to Whyalla is another one of those inland boring highways with very little to see, the endless wheat fields is a stark reminder of how much wheat Australia produces. Strong winds buffeted our drive and on numerous occasions we drove through huge dust bowls that blanketed the highway reducing visibility to less than 100m. Once in Whyalla we took Leonie straight to the hospital where finally a positive outcome was agreed upon, but as it was the weekend this couldn’t be achieved till Monday…… Ahhh! The country lifestyle and facilities can be so so frustrating sometimes….. We were soon setting up the van but with the wind still relentless we spent the afternoon tucked away cosy in our van.
HMAS Whyalla
For the first time in quite a few days we could spend Sunday lazing around the van. We caught up with family and friends electronically and really enjoyed the morning just relaxing. At lunch time we joined a tour of the HMAS Whyalla which is beached high n dry some 2km from the coast. This Navy ship served in WWII before being returned to its name-sake. From there we took in the views from Mt Laura, this unofficial lookout provided some 4WDriving and offers sweeping views of the Spencer Gulf and the industries which use it to transport steel and grain around the world…. Returning to the van, Leonie and the kids spent some time baking. We haven’t seen or used an oven since leaving home and as the van park had one the kids were keen for some cakes and cookies. They were a yummy way to finish a busy week.

Let’s hope next week brings us some joy with Leonie’s finger and we can get back to enjoying our holiday at a more leisurely pace.

Week 18 - Purposeful Meandering around Oz

Bunbury – Kwolyin Bush Camp – Kalgoorlie - Esperance
Kilometres          21444 – 22893 km

As Monday was Leonie’s Birthday we’d planned a day of leisure which included a few things that she loves to do. Naturally we started with a sleep-in and a hearty dose of bacon rolls. For most the morning we lazed around the van, the kids hired the pedal karts and zoomed around the park for a while…. By about lunchtime we headed into Bunbury to check out a few of the local sights. The Rotary Tower offered great views of the area with the black n white chequered lighthouse provided a contrasting backdrop. Naturally our day wasn’t complete without a bit of retail therapy and a coffee with the family. By late afternoon we’d returned to the van where we enjoyed a lovely dinner.
Bunbury harbour
Tuesday was the start of a reluctant milestone for us, our trip back east had begun, we were heading towards Kalgoorlie. There was no more coastal greenness or heavily populated suburbia, it was replaced by Merino filled paddocks and endless golden wheat fields. It was harvest time and on number of occasions we watched the big combine harvesters flanked by tractor trailers as they filled and made their way to many temporary stockyards that spring up at this time of year. By mid-afternoon we’d driven halfway to Kalgoorlie and were happy to find a bush camp for the night.
Moving in a north-easterly direction away from the coast brought an instant change in the temperature, the cool days and nights of southern WA were replaced by the warmer temperatures that we’d experienced and loved for much of our trip. On Wednesday as we pushed on to Kalgoorlie where we experienced temps of 36deg and once again the scenery changed to a much harsher arid landscape…. With two solid days driving behind us we finally arriving in the mining town of Kalgoorlie-Boulder where we soon found a caravan park and setup for a few days. We headed into town for a few supplies and a quick look around, the enormity of Kalgoorlie caught us by surprise. The supporting infrastructure that accompanies a mine is amazing. It’s similar to that of Wollongong or Port Hedland but there is no shipping port out here! We soon found ourselves at the life-blood of Kalgoorlie – The Super Pit. This massive open-cut mine is beyond comprehension, its 3.7km long, 1.55km wide and 600m deep. At the bottom, cars look like ants while people are nearly unrecognisable and what are normally huge bucket loaders and monster tippers are dwarfed against the scale of this hole/mine…. By early evening the temperature still hovered around 30deg with Thursday expected to peak at 40deg.
The Super Pit
Thursday started out hot and got hotter, we spent much of the morning by the pool at the caravan park but with things to see and do we couldn’t afford to sit around all day. There was plenty of mining history to see with a few old mine headframes still standing in place and the nearby lookout provided a great view over the town…. Each day the Super Pit blast a new section of rock for the next days excavation and at 1.30pm we were lucky to witness the explosion. The ground rumbled and the noise vibrated through us as we stood at the visitors lookout…. The culmination of our day was a tour of the Questa Casa brothel which opens its doors to the public each day, an hour and a half later I was  very informed as to the way a madam makes her money.
Friday started early for us as we joined a tour of the Super Pit. The operators of the open-cut gold mine KCGM, provide a very informative tour bus ride around the mine, from excavating the rock, to the crusher and mill through to the electrolysis process, its all done on site. The mine produces approx’ 15 gold bars every 3 days or about $1.2 billion/year. There are 40 dump trucks each costing $4.4 million running up and down the hill each day while there are 4 face shovel excavators each costing $18 million removing the ore and to be up close to these heavy machines was amazing. Ethan didn’t know which way to look as he continually spied a new machine or process….. After the tour and lunch we finished the day by seeing a few more sights of Kalgoorlie.
Ready for work Boss!
Saturday was moving day and we were on the road by 9am. We were heading to Esperance where we’d hope to catch up with some friends we’d met earlier in our travels. The day was pretty uneventful until we stopped at a small town just north of Esperance for a pee-break when Leonie trips on a small step causing her to fall to the ground, resulting in a broken pinky finger and a bit of bark off her knee. After some onsite 1st aid we headed to the Esperance Hospital where they strapped the finger, but they couldn’t X-ray it as it was the weekend (typical small country town). Hopefully by Monday we’ll know the full extent….. In the meantime we’ll spend a couple of days relaxing as we look around Esperance at a slower pace…. Late in the day we caught up with some friends we hadn’t seen since Perth, we spent the next few hours catching up on our respective travels.
Big, bigger, biggest
A grader, a water cart, a tipper
Sunday is meant to be a day of sleeping, tell that to some of our neighbours who thought it’d be good to be packing up and chatting to anyone who’d listen at 5.45am. That aside we did have a lazy morning around the van, it was nearly lunchtime when we headed out to see some of Esperance. We stopped by a local festival, checked out the Pink Lake, a few lookouts and beaches before returning to town where we stopped at a fish tannery. It was here that we learnt how they turn unwanted fish skin into very valuable leather products which we all thought was really interesting….. Our week concluded watching some cricket and enjoying some liquid refreshments.
Esperance Bay
By this time next week we’ll be somewhere on the Nullarbor, getting very close to South Australia.
Ciao for now

Week 17 - Purposeful Meandering Around Oz

Warren NP – Margaret River – Bunbury
Kilometres          20279 - 21444km

Monday was moving day for us and once again the kids had to say goodbye to some friends they’d made along the way, but with a promise that we’d catch up again in Adelaide….. We headed west along the southern WA coastline to Denmark where I showed the family some of the amazing cache finds I’d found a few days earlier. We continued on, stopping at another chocolate factory and the incredibly tall lookout trees, near Pemberton. These trees which are used for fire spotting have steel spikes circumnavigating their way to the top in the form of a ladder. The smallest of these trees being 50m high while the tallest tree is the Dave Evans tree at 65m high. We stopped at two of these trees and watched in amazement that WA OHS still allows the climbing of these trees to the public. We chose to climb with the kids halfway up the taller 65m high tree. The view from this height was breathtaking enough. Leaving the Pemberton area we continued on to a beautiful bush camp within one of the many National Parks in that region.
Tree climbing - Pemberton
With nothing to disturb us we enjoyed a sleep-in on Tuesday before hitting the road and making our way to the Margaret River region. We chose to stay in the township of Margaret River with the plan to use this as a base for the many attractions that lie within this wine region. A quick stop at the tourist information had us well stocked for info on the 100+ wineries, caves, beaches and other attractions in the area. We spent the remainder of the day by the van as the kids caught up on some schoolwork.
The enchanted forest
On Wednesday we headed out to some of the many attractions this area has to offer. We headed down south stopping first at a barrista coffee warehouse where we enjoyed a nice early morning coffee. Next stop was “Cookie Galore” whereas the name suggests the family gorged themselves on an array of yummy cookies. We continued south via the picturesque caves road. The enchanted forest and Hamelin Bay were well worth the stop. We eventually arrived at Cape Leeuwin which is the most south-western point of WA, we quickly jumped on the end of a lighthouse tour where we got to climb the tallest mainland lighthouse in Australia. This amazing lighthouse sits metres from where the Southern and Indian Oceans meet. To complete our day we sampled a number of nice wines as we visited a few wineries as we returned to Margaret River.
Climbing to the top of the Lighthouse
We gave ourselves the luxury of a sleep-in on Thursday, the kids set about catching up on a few days schoolwork while we did some letter writing. About lunchtime we headed off to see some more sights. We stopped by Surfers Point beach which hosts a round of the world surfing championships. From there we sampled a few more wines before stopping at the famous Margaret River Chocolate factory, once again the girls of this family were in heaven to the many options available. We continued to sample some wines as we headed around the region, finally stopping at the Margaret River Dairy Co where the kids devoured some delicious milkshakes.
Margaret River Surfing reserve
Our plan for a lazy morning on Friday didn’t materialize, the van park had stuffed up our booking and had asked us to move to a different site, so our shortest day on the road occurred as we moved 2 sites to the left. After setting up again and the kids playing on the jumping pillow we headed out once again, of course to visit more wineries. It was at one of these wineries that we got a hot tip about pizza and beer at a local brewery. We didn’t spend much time sampling wine as everyone was keen to sample the Millers Ice Cream farm. This dairy farm specialises in its own delicious ice creams which we all enjoyed sampling….. By night fall we headed out to the Colonial Brewery for a great night of live music, pizza and a few specialty beers.
Hamelin Bay
Another day but there was no let up to the frenetic pace we’d been setting around MR. Today we headed north to Busselton and the surrounding towns. The weather was perfect and many people swam in the turquoise water of Geographe Bay. We chose to catch the miniature train out along the 1.8km jetty to the underwater observatory where clear waters allowed us great viewing of the marine life some 10m below the surface. Returning to solid ground we saw a few more sights of Busselton before spending the rest of the day driving south along the coastal tourist drive. Of course this area is teeming with wine makers so we naturally had to stop and sample a few more wines, ciders, beers and chocolates.
Busselton Jetty
Sunday (today) was moving day and it couldn’t come any sooner. The Margaret River wine region has been expensive and hectic, but beautiful. We both agreed that a few days R&R and to detox is necessary. With only a short drive till our next stop there was no real urgency to be on the road early. We packed up and grabbed a coffee from the Barista warehouse before hitting the road. The kids spent most of the 100km to Bunbury reading, to the point they said the trip had only felt like a 10min drive. Leonie and I looked at each other and wished every long day in the car could have the kids feeling like that….. We quickly found a van park in Bunbury and setup just as a heavy rain shower swept over us. We spent the rest of the afternoon catching up on a few domestic chores. We finished the week by heading out for dinner to celebrate Leonie’s birthday.
Rotary Tower - Bunbury
Happy Birthday Lee.
