    Armadale
    Dardanup Heritage Park. - combined ride with Armadale Branch.
    • Ride to Dardanup.
    • Numbers will be required for this fascinating visit to a world-class display.
    • The restored steam-operated sawmill will be working on this day, and for an entrance fee of $15 we can spend as long as we like browsing the huge (7000m2) display of pioneering and farm machinery, replica mill settlement, extensive military display (including a Leopard tank!), over 150 working tractors & dozers, gemstones, shearing shed and heritage dairy and pioneering memorabilia.
    • In order to spend as much time at Dardanup as possible (the displays take at least 2hrs) Doug from Armadale will lead us straight down Great Sthn Hwy to Harvey, morning tea will be at Captain Stirling tearooms on the river, then on to Dardanup. Although there is a choice for lunch, we thought the finger-food lunch at $15 a head would be the go: homemade sausage rolls, mini quiches, variety of party pies and sandwiches, with a selection of cakes and slices and after-dinner mints with DIY tea and coffee (booking required for a minimum of 15 people).
    • Alternatively, we could choose the BBQ lunch at $24/hd (booking required for a minimum of 20 people), or there is a full smorgasbord at $33/hd.
    • This will be a great day out but as you can see we need nominated numbers because the lunch has to be pre-ordered.
    • So, put your hand up guys and let us know your preference for lunch, but make the commitment to come along to make this a terrific Branch outing.
    • Contact Mark Johnstone for catering numbers and further information.
