Today we tried out the Great Valley Rally, a sort of treasure hunt around Perth's Swan Valley wine region. The children had to decipher direction clues and locate markers around the valley. The trail takes you to several historic sites and past many wineries and the chocolate factories.
First up was the old gaol and museum at the visitors centre.

|A family with 13 children all lived in this tiny house.|
We passed several historic buildings including WA's oldest church.
Bells Rapid's were looking very un-rapid like due to the hot weather and we saw signs of a recent bush fire in the area.
That's a little geography and history covered this week then!
