The Wildflowers at Datjoin Well and Rock -2018

Mukinbudin local nature enthusiast 🐦and amateur photographer 📷 Ursina Gringer has been out and about again looking for wildflowers around the Wheatbelt Way. This time she went to Datjoin Well and Rock, 18kms east of Beacon in the Mt Marshall Shire.

Datjoin Well and Rock reserve has several unique rock formations located east of Beacon, an area opened to pastoral leases as far north as Datjoin in 1872 and the well was dug in early 1900’s by sandalwood cutters.

During the winter and spring months of July to October  Datjoin Reserve is a popular picnic and tourist camp spot for travellers as well as those looking to find some of the best orchids and wildflowers the region has to offer.

Travel 18kms east of Beacon on Burakin/Wialki Road  to the narrow track entrance to the Datjoin Well and camping areas, accessible to cars/4wds/camper trailers only, no caravans. Camp fires allowed April — September.  Access to Datjoin Rock is another 2 kms eastwards on Clark Rd on the left at the top of the rise. No access to large vans.  Track into Datjoin is ok for 2WD vehicles and camping is allowed for camper trailers, small caravans and tents.
