Kirkalocka Station

Our first night camping was spent at Kirkalocka Station, a 25,000 acre sheep farm about 260 miles N of Perth.  They offer camping facilities by the old sheep shearer's quarters.  The horses were a treat for me.  Ann told us we might see some kangaroos come to the pond for water and I went both dusk and dawn but didn't see any.  This was after seeing about 35 dead ones on the side of the road between Perth and Kirkalocka.  This was also were I learned the term "roo bar" the extra bumper on the front of everyone's truck.  Kirkalocka has an interesting botanical story- 2 new plants were named there.
