Dardanup Heritage Park

Yesterday I went out to Sugarloaf Rocks in the morning shooting with Mark Stothard. Just as well his camera is waterproof as he and his camera got hit with the spray from a large wave. In the afternoon I went to the Dardanup Heritage Park and got a huge surprise. This place is massive and full of old machinery. They are so big that they have different sheds devoted to brands of tractors eg one shed for Massey Ferguson, one for International and so on. If you are interested in old machinery you could spend days here. They are open Wednesdays and Sundays, or to prearranged groups of around 30 people. Here are some images to give you a feel for the place. These are nearly all shot in separate sheds. I will post more later.
