GRAVITY CENTRE – Bus Trip, Sunday 30th April, 2023

Hello everyone

The Pickering Brook Heritage Group’s April 23 bus tour took us to visit the Gingin Gravity Centre.
It was ‘all aboard’ and at the appointed time of 8:30am and we hit the road towards the township of Gingin in Roy’s new super dooper bus, which he again most generously supplied to our group for the trip.

Gingin townsite is a quaint town with loads of early WA history. The beautiful park and water way with the paddle mill is certainly a big drawcard for visitors to the town.
Morning tea time was served and everyone had the chance to enjoy one of our sumptuous eatery spreads and spend a little time wandering round through the park and enjoying the serenity of Gingin

From Gingin it was just a short drive to the Gingin Gravity Centre.

We were welcomed warmly by Sam and Laura our tour guides.
Sam walked us all through the Centre and his knowledge of science was evident. He is a young man studying at university and working at the Gravity Centre fits well with his studies.
He voiced us through the universe and the scientific theories of past scientific revolutionary masters. He had many varied and interesting questions which he answered clearly with ease and introduced us to the wonder of the stars and the universe beyond. It was such a great opportunity for us all to listen and learn.

It was indeed a treat as many of our group commented that they would not have visited the Gingin Gravity Centre as an individual personal choice.

There was a great little café in the Centre that served drinks (coffee, tea and soft drinks etc), lunches and sweet treats such as cakes and yummo ice creams. For those of us who brought along our ‘picnic lunch boxes’, we found ourselves tables and chairs outside where we ate, relaxed in the sunshine and enjoyed the beautiful bush surround of the Centre.

On leaving the Gingin Gravity Centre, we headed off on our way home. Roy found us a lovely afternoon tea venue at Whiteman Park. We were able to stretch our legs and wet the whistle with a cuppa and enjoyed finishing off the lovely cakes and treats that our group had contributed to the day – Many thanks to you all again for your continued support in the eatery supplies. We now seem to have a reputation of providing the most delicious choice of goodies.

Stay tuned for our next adventurous bus trip scheduled for September, 2023
