Coach Trip

"In August, thirty one members and partners of the Men's Probus Club of Booragoon (WA) enjoyed another excellent 'Elite Tours' coach trip, arranged by the Clubs Outings Officer Alan Marsh.

First stop was for morning tea at Whiteman Park. This comprises 4000 hectares of bushland 22km North of Perth and is home to many attractions including motor, transport and tractor museums, craft shops, cafe, walking trails and much much more.

Then it was on to the historic town of Chidlow for a delicious and plentiful 4 choice lunch at the Chidlow Tavern. This tavern is over a century old and, now refurbished, it incorporates its own railway museum. The town, originally called Chidlow's Well, became a railway connection in 1884 and the Tavern is full of fascinating historical railway artefacts.


On the way home, members stopped at beautiful Lake Leschenaultia which was originally man made to provide water for the steam locomotives after their long climb up the hills. It is now a lovely location for many types of recreation.

Photos show some of the participants at these 3 attractive venues.

Another day of fun and friendship.
