Started the day at Bindoon Bakery for breakfast


Drove to New Norcia, was slow, was approx 5 8.5m wide dump truck trays heading north


Spent approx 1 hour in the museum/art gallery, they have some interesting things

Did the 2 hour guided tour around the main building's including a Piano and pipe organ demo from one of the local monks





Followed by lunch at the New Norcia Hotel, No photo to busy stuffing my face

Then home via Bindoon Bakery again to keep the wifes custard tart cravings under control

I think its worth a look, there is far more history there then i had thought, to the point the entire town is owned by the 11 monks, they own the roadhouse, Hotel and approx 20000 acres of farmland around the area.

DID YOU KNOW......Great Northern Highway links Western Australia's capital city Perth with its northernmost port, Wyndham. With a length of almost 3,200 kilometres (2,000 mi), it is the longest highway in Australia
