Camping excursion to Dryandra Woodland National Park – Friday October 20 to Monday October 23
The weather is looking fine and warm for this weekend’s Busselton Naturalists Club camping trip to Dryandra.
Dryandra is the home of the world’s largest population of numbats and it also has healthy populations of woylies, quolls and echidnas, so with luck we should see some of WA’s rarest and least seen marsupials.
It’s not possible to book campsites at either of the two camping areas at Dryandra, so it’s a case of first in, best dressed.
Our preferred campground is Congelin, as the sites are next to each other so we can enjoy some evening social get togethers without having to wonder where members of our group are located.
The newer campground is named Gnaala Mia and, while it’s newer than Congelin, individual samp sites are spaced out away from each other so less attractive to a group like ours.
Congelin has toilets, picnic tables and BBQs, but camping fees apply, so pay as you enter the campground. Fees are believed to have increased as from September 1 but the DBCA website is quote the original fee structure of $11.00 per night or $7.00 concession per adult.
Dryandra Woodland National Park has a number of walk trails located throughout its 280 square kilometres, together with a 23km drive trail.
Each morning, we will gather at Congelin campground prior to departing on a walk or drive looking for wildflowers, marsupials and other wildlife.
Please let Club president Bernie Masters know if you intend taking part in this camping trip – phone 0408 944 242 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
It is suggested that people arrive as soon after lunch on Friday October 20 to grab a campsite in the Congelin group camping area.
