Nellie's has only just opened - but being in a town of approximately 200 people, it is a nice change to be able to go somewhere to buy fresh bread and to have nice meals and cakes. The Quiche was lovely. They also have Lasagne, Pizza, Pies & Pasties.The cakes are lovely too.more
During spring and summer, many reptilian creatures will come out of hiding to bask in the sunlight causing concern and potential risks to unsuspecting people and their pets. During this time you should take precautions and be aware of your surroundings in order to minimise the chance of dangerous encounters with any snakes.
They are an integral part of the natural environment and play an important role in wildlife ecosystems.
The most commonly encountered dangerously venomous snakes in the metropolitan area are dugites and tiger snakes. Tiger snakes (Notechis scutatus) are most common in vegetation around wetland areas. They are also often seen throughout the year sunning themselves in open areas and may be found well away from water.
Dugites (Pseudonaja affinis) are most commonly found in the drier bushland areas around Perth, especially grasslands. They are fast-moving snakes that are attracted to aviaries and other locations where mice can be found.
Both species hunt small mammals, frogs and lizards, and though they are active in the day, they are also active at night in warm weather.
Precautions you should take
Be aware and take care in bushland and grassy areas;
walk and/or cycle on cleared areas only, where the ground can be seen;
when out bushwalking, it is advisable to wear long trousers and boots or other enclosed footwear that preferably cover the ankles;
Keep a watchful eye on the ground about a metre ahead of where you are walking and avoid entering areas of long grass, rushes and undergrowth;
Learn the correct treatment for snakebite.
What to do if you find a snake
If you encounter a snake it is important not to approach or aggravate it in any way. Most snakebites occur when people accidentally step on them, or when they are attempting to kill them. As the warmer days of spring approach, snakes become more active and noticeable as they leave their winter retreats in search of a mate and food.
Pack a picnic hamper and head for Coalseam National Park, where the landscape is a blanket of yellow, pink and white everlastings. Enjoy the views from the lookout of the walking trails.
There’s a dry riverbed through the reserve and if you’re a bit of a rock hound it’s a paradise for pottering through specimens. Follow nature’s sculpture-work as the bed winds through gorges and cliffs.
See the limestone cliffs of the gorges up close, there are fossilised remains embedded in the rock.
The Perenjori Pub is located down the road on the next corner from the Information Centre. There's only one main street in Perenjori so you can't miss it lol.We didn't venture in because it was closed. So remember if you are in town on a Sunday, the pub doesn't open until 4pm......gee and we were so thirsty too! :o)Link to Traveloguesmore
