Wanneroo members go on Mystery Tour
About 38 Wanneroo and several North Coast members embarked on a “Mystery Tour” hosted by Chris and Scott from Club 55 Tours. The tour left the Wanneroo Community Centre and headed south on the new Northlink freeway and Tonkin Highway until we stopped for morning tea at Wungong Dam. Then a scenic tour of the hills followed, including a stop at Raeburn Orchards in Roleystone. Lunch was at the John Forrest Tavern in the National Park. All agreed that this mystery tour really was magical.
