Some of my favourite meals have been at a good ol' Aussie BBQ. Just head down to the supemarket and find some of your favourite foods to throw on the BBQ.
Favorite Dish: A few snags (sausages) with fried onion on the barbie (BBQ) in a fresh bun with dead horse (tomato sauce) is a firm family favourite. And what could be better than to wash it down with a full bodied flavoursome WA red...

With an abundance of natural settings it is no wonder that the South West of WA attracts so many creative people and Walpole is no exception. Artists are inspired by their beautiful local surroundings and by the rich materials available to them.
I found this painting by a local artist at one of the art and craft shops in Walpole. I won't pretend to understand art but I just loved the sun and the moon and the lovely colours used in this particular painting. And now everytime I walk past and see it hanging on my wall I am reminded of a wonderful week in Walpole.

We arrived Sunday afternoon and completed the Tree Top Walk before the storm arrived. It pelted heavy rain all night and together with the thunder and lightning it felt good to be inside a nice warm cottage. When morning arrived the rain had lessened, however it was wet and we decided to drive back to Perth mid morning.
On to the South Western Highway and within 20 minutes we came to a halt as the road was closed due to several large trees falling over during the storm. The State Emergency Service were clearing the road, using chain saws to break up the trees. Eventually after a half hour a passage was cleared and we continued on our way, however we quickly came across other sections of the road that had been cleared earlier by the SES.

Thurlby Herb Farm is about 15 km's north of Walpole along Gardiners Road. There are fragrant herb gardens set in a beautiful countryside of rolling hills and calm forests.
Thurlby grows their own herbs to distil essential oils and produce their own handmade fragrant soaps, plant-based aromatic products and unique sweets such as wildflower honey nougat and lemon myrtle toffee.
Next to the gardens there is a café with a selection of garden fresh lunches, rosemary scones, homemade cakes, and a large variety of teas and coffees.
The family owned herb farm is a 10min walk from the Walpole Wilderness Resort so you can take a leisurely stroll along a quiet stretch of road if you happen to be staying there.
