WEEKEND CAMP – CLOSE TO CITY, CLOSE TO NATURE – ACTION OUTDOORS ASSOCIATION

30/11/2015 – Perth Hills Discovery Centre Campsite

Seen on the AOA Website – Opportunity to join a small like minded group, camp under the stars, bushwalk and enjoy a campfire within 40k of home! Anticipate getting to Perth Hills Discovery Centre campsite, Mundaring, in time to have tents up before dark on the Friday night. The campsites are small and we have reserved them all.

MyTent

A wonderful quiet campsite with only 12 tent sites, as the Bibbulmun Track goes through this area, the campsite is used mostly for walkers.  My faithful cycling tent is in the centre of the picture, used back in the days of my cycle touring in Europe and Africa. (1980s)  It is still in one piece and doing well.

First days activity was on the Camel Farm Mountain Bike Track at Kalamunda, so I had to actually get a photo of a camel.  The track was good, the first one with my ‘new’ mountain bike, nice wide knobbly tyres hold the dirt curves well and I felt much safer.

Anticipation

Planning the next trip, or discussing the last one, and getting ready to do it all again.

CheekyBugger

Here is a very cheeky customer, I watched him break open a bread bag and start hacking away at the bread.  Having been chased away from that he just proceeded on to the next likely looking bag and started the process again.  No fear at all.

Kitchen

Sunday morning saw the keen ones up early sharing jokes and coffee.  Those of us who can are going for a bush walk to the North Ledge of the Mundaring Dam.

ThroughBush

We head off through the bush, it is always great to know that someone has done the walk before and can confidently show us the way.  (That is the theory anyway, it doesn’t always work out like this.)

Strolling

An easy bit of strolling along a flat road.  Sorry, I didn’t notice that someone is in the process of removing his shirt while I take a photo – it could have been worse.

NorthLedge

Here we are at North Ledge seeing what we can see.

MundaringYH

On the way back we pass by Mundaring Youth Hostel, and see a few Australians out the front waiting for some food.  I’ll bet this has some of the international visitors getting their cameras out in a hurry!
