Looking for something interesting to do, my girlfriend and I packed up and headed south east to check out the newly built Gnaala Mia campsite, nestled amongst the incredible landscape of the Dryandra Woodland. DPaW knows how popular this woodland is, hence the second camp ground.
This scenery is a beautiful change to the jarrah forests we're used to in the west, and the arid plains of the wheatbelt.
Thinking of going? The Gnaala Mia site is situated on levelled grounds, and bordered by gentle slopes of natural bushland, granite rock, with plenty of shade from the canopy of white gums.
It was a welcoming camp site to drive into (RV friendly road), guided by two main loops. We were happy to have the camp ground to ourselves, although I can't see that being the usual play once people know how great this spot is. Although each site was privately tucked away from the camp road, it was still awesome to have the whole place to ourselves.
The newly built outdoor kitchen and facilities blend seamlessly into the woodland. They're so unobtrusive, we were treated with the presence of kangaroos by the light fading of the day.
You'll find numerous walk trails leading deeper into the woodland, branching out from the camping area, and with Barna Mia so close at hand, there is something for every member of your group...young or old.
We made full use of the peace and tranquillity, you can believe it.
