A LITTLE ABOUT MEEKATHARRA (from Wikipedia)

From 1993 onwards I worked for the West Australian Department of Training. My job often took me to remote parts of the state. My role was to encourage and coordinate employment and training programs by working with the Local Government authorities. The Shire of Meekatharra just completed a training program for their young people and I presented the students with their graduation certificates.

The course tutor had a lot of local knowledge and invited me to see an area near town with these unusual rock formations. He told me they were the result of volcanic activity in the distant past. I took some home with me and I still marvel at their shape and texture.

Because Meeka was a long drive from home, I often stayed overnight. The photos below suggest to me that things have picked up a lot since the early 1990’s.They weren’t very inviting when I stayed there but there wasn’t much option. It was fun though 🙂
