Another great outing was with Alan on his tag-along-tour. He has 3 outings a week and as we did not have a 4 wheel drive we travelled with Alan in his vehicle. Three other 4 wheel drives tagged along and Alan took us along Skipper Road in to the sand plain area in search of orchids and other unusual native plants. It was a 4 hour search and we found a number of exquisite, dainty orchids.
Another area we visited was a newly saved nature reserve. It was to be bulldozed by the land owner to form more agricultural land, but Alan and a number of concerned conservationists fought a steady campaign to have it set aside as a reserve and thankfully they achieved their goal. It was in this area that we found the orchids.
