Proposed Events for Travel Companions for Seniors

WILDFLOWER AND MT AUGUSTUS TAG – ALONG EVENT SEPT ‘19

It’s the Wildflower Season! Spring is in the air! The birds are chirping and the wildflowers are out!

You could go and do a Bus Tour and be stuck with a fixed “what you can look at” itinerary – OR ….

Option 1

Come along on a self-drive trip doing as much or as little as you wish along the way. Walk/hike; check out museums; points of interest; photography – whatever interests you, do it!

Some suggestions for along the way can be found at http://www.australiasgoldenoutback.com/page/road-rock The idea is to “tag along” and meet every day at pre-determined spots and times, giving you the freedom to do as you please along the way. Some will want to hike, some will want to see mining relics, and others will want to ‘just see the sunset’. Anyone interested please contact me to work out details that suit everyone.
