  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Nearby are some great walks, towns are 28 km away and the city is 1.5 hr away. A vehicle may be available. Over the last four years we have hosted many backpackers completing their regional work - our preference is for 25yr plus travellers and it is good if you have reasonable English language skills. You MUST NOT MIND getting dirty as the Wheatbelt is 'red dirt' and dusty sometimes!
