The day starts with a ride to the Sheep Saleyards … its a big day and sheep are selling for the best prices ever. Business is booming as we wander around the lots as sheep are being auctioned and drafted through the pens. We chat to an agent who is very obliging with a commentary of the mornings events. Well worth the visit.
Katanning hosts a street art trail that was completed in November 2017; seven days, five murals and seven transformer boxes later, plus a series of youth workshops, the job was done. The colour and variety of the styles show how even the humblest wall or object can be transformed by art.
With map in hand we were off on our bikes to discover the artwork.
On our travels we found the Kobeelya Conference and Accommodation Centre; talking to the gardener who gave us some history and opened it up for us to view the accommodation. The centre was built in 1902 and was home to the renowned Frederick Henry Piecce. The building has had many guises in it’s long history.
Back on the art trail through the town.
It’s time to venture to the All Ages Playground and play on the variety of slides and equipment in this beautifully manicured park. I mustn’t do too much as I’ll be back later this year on the On Your Bike CTA tour.
