Sunday     -   3.5.2020 Augusta  Morning tea with the Historical Society 
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.

Remember 2020 is the year you could meet a long lost cousin or Aunt - bring the children and grand children so they start off their memories early and become future participants. We need to encourage them for the future.
Don't make a big deal of going to WA - just GO !
