Hi ExplorOz Reader,
There's so much work going on in the office on EOTopo production that we hardly had time to prepare this week's newsletter but better late than never!
Last Chance to Get your Raffle Tickets - just 12 days left for those still wanting to buy raffle tickets online for this wonderful hand-painted saw blade that will be drawn at the National Gathering in Trilby on Wednesday 1st October. All funds from the sale of tickets will be donated to Louth RFDS clinic.
Safe travels to all those heading off soon to meet up in Trilby. We hope to see your photos and stories in the blogs soon.
Bloomin' News - The name asparagus conjures up a culinary treat – but the Asparagus family includes some very varied and attractive wildflowers too!
The fairly common Blue Squill is found across a wide area of SW WA. It has edible tubers too. Other members of this diverse family include the lovely mauve fringed lily, often found delicately twining through larger shrubs, and the tufted Lomandras with incredibly sweet perfume but often called Cockies Bootlaces because of their tough wiry appearance.
In this new edition all trip notes and pictures have been fully updated and lat/longs are included as waypoints. This title also features a first person account of a reporter meeting John Holland as he rode into Coolgardie.
