The Wudinna Senior Citizens group recently took a ‘mystery trip’ to the Gawler Ranges.
Organised by new secretary Sandy Alexander, she also drove the community bus to take the group to their destination.
Taking a right-hand turn from the clubrooms, everybody soon realised they were heading towards the Gawler Ranges National Park, with the first port of call being the Kangaluna Camp owned by Geoff and Irene Scholz.
Rosie Woodford-Ganf made the kangaroo on display at the Telecentre and she had a tour to organise on this day.
Mr Scholz was on his way home but was held up, so it was decided for the group to have an early picnic lunch watched by three emus who were curious onlookers.
As the group enjoyed lunch colourful Port Lincoln Parrots came by and were a delight to watch.
The next part of the mystery tour was to Paney Woolshed, but phone contact was limited and the group were unable to contact the ranger who Ms Alexander had hoped would talk to them.
The group enjoyed their time out in the park and the weather was just right, but they did not see any kangaroos.
On the way home they visited Lake Agar, which is near Pygery and fills with rainwater which needs to evaporate, and so provided a picnic spot and playground for locals who about it – it is quite a large area and usually has water in it.
On Thursday, October 18, Every Generation is being held at Kimba and the Wudinna group will be taking private cars to this.
Contact Sandy Alexander on 0437 586 725 if you wish to go on the trip or need transport.
On Friday, November 23 there is another bus trip, this time to Elliston, and the group will leave the clubrooms at 9.30am.
On Friday, December 14 will be the final meeting for the year and a Christmas lunch, with details to be arranged and a new program prepared for 2019.
