April 2012 Norseman Great Western Woodland Walk

Photos of the Walk :

“The Great Western Woodlands is an Ark for rare and threatened plants and animals, containing thousands of species found nowhere else on the planet”.

” Located in the southwest of Western Australia, beyond the ‘Wheatbelt’, its one of earth’s most significant places. At 16 million hectares, an area larger than England, there is no landscape as large, diverse or intact as the Great Western Woodlands in all of Australia”

“The Great Western Woodlands is the biggest and most intact remaining wilderness area of its type in the world.” quotes taken from wilderness society

Norseman Great Western Woodland Walk will be a rare opportunity to explore and wonder through this magnificent country.
