We will  have a computer with the complete ( well 95% ) of Turner family tree, scanners to copy your photos and letters and certificates and printers.
It is a busy time - if you wish to visit the wineries etc then allow a few days either prior to or after the Reunion. There is not enough time to do both on the weekend.
Travel from Perth  it is 350 kms approx.
Rental car -  the drive takes 3.5 hrs. with no stops and it is best to make a day of it and see the sights on the way.

Train or Bus or a combined service. I think it takes about 4.5 hrs.
(there is no train to Augusta it stops at Bunbury you then transfer to a coach)
Flights from East to West & back
Book as soon as you can - it will be cheaper in the long run. Remember the time difference.

Thursday Art Tour has been confirmed starting at 2pm on the Thursday 30.4.15  but if you are travelling from the Eastern States then you will need to be there Wednesday or Thursday am in order to be part of the tour and ready to travel on Friday to Augusta.
Remember 2015 is the year you could meet a long lost cousin or Aunt - bring the grand children so they start off their memories early and become future participants.
Don't make a big deal of going to WA - just GO !
