We stayed overnight in Merredin (to break up the kilometres between Kalgoorlie and Perth). We entered Perth from the West and visited the dam (as we had seen the long water pipe that carries water from the outskirts of Perth out to the dry, gold mining region).
We stopped off at a lavender farm for tea. A beautiful spot, although we had to take care where we walked. Lavender lollies, carrot cake with lavender icing; all on the menu.
The next day we flew home again.
