This is a return to the Swiss club of WA camping grounds

The (Not So) BACK TO BASICS OVERNIGHTER – Lot 65 Louisa Circle Morangup WA.

NOTE:  GOOGLE MAPS LISTS THE ADDRESS AS LOT 254

Please contact Jeff Thomas on 0409 293 320 for any enquiries and an indication of numbers.

The ride will depart Kelmscot  McDonalds at 12:00pm midday.  The first stop will be at York for lunch and then onto the camp site via Northam and Toodyay, which will be a good place to pick up supplies.  ALL rubbish must be removed as you leave.  Gas and fuel stoves or lamps are permitted.  A gas barbecue and tank will be provided for cooking.

The property is owned by the Swiss club of WA and is 5 hectares of bush with a football field size flat area in the middle so all you can see at night is the stars. A bonfire will be lit on the Saturday night.  The entry is via a dirt road but easily navigable by a road bike.  The site has a non-potable water tank and flushing toilets and shower.  A generator will be provided for lighting in an undercover area, otherwise, this is a BYO everything you need to eat, drink, sleep etc.

The address shown above can be reached by travelling north from Gidgegannup Bakery on the Toodyay Road for 15.7km and turning left into Dryandra Road which turns into Lousia Circle, continuing for 3.8km with Lot 65 on the left.  The closest tavern is at Noble Falls.
