Morawa Pool

Morawa Pool is what has kept me sane here all this time along with cooking on the campfire . We have been out a few times while here . A guy from the other side of town invited us over for a bbq months ago which was nice & apart from a few week evenings and supporting the locals at a few events like the Morawa Speedway & Morawa Football etc we have been on our own .

I sometimes like to go to the pool so I can say hello to someone as much as have a swim so it will be nice to be on the road and have someone to have lunch or even a coffee with during the day .

It is a beautiful pool with diving board , BBQ area which we enjoyed using tonight ,as well as a childrens paddling pool !

Sandy & Jeff are doing a great job keeping the water looking clean at all times, We will miss them both when we leave Morawa soon.

and it is very reasonably priced.

You can cook on the bbq provided or if early walk to the Roadhouse where they do a lovely meal of fish and chips , steak or hamburgers etc.Unfortunatly their coffee machine had broken down so you couldn't buy a decent coffee in Morawa.

hi freecampingaussie

I use to live in Meekathurra a few years back, working at St. Barbara mines. I remember the beautiful outback scenery surrounding Morawa and of course up to Meeka. And from memory, I spent a weekend in that area in my days off, went to the speedway as a couple of mates were racing at the time.

Anyway, just dropped by to say Gday.

Very good hub.
