Western Australia

4/6/2023: We got a rental car and drove off over the holiday weekend to visit the Dryandra Woodland. The hosts at the accommodation were kind enough to lend us some high power flashlights in order to search for nocturnal animals.

4/7/2023: A bit more walking around the woodlands, but today it was raining for much of the day. We drove around a bit on a very dusty road, and we ended up with a thick red dust in all of the door jams of the car, even thought it was raining.

4/8/2023: Another early morning walkabout before heading further south.
