With colour runs, concerts and caravans galore, a big crowd descended on the Wheatbelt for the 2023 Wandering Campout Weekend.

The entire town was transformed with market stalls and exhibitions stretching from one end of Wandering to the other, plus the local CWA branch serving up scones and tea in the middle.

Nightly concerts kept the campout crowd entertained and during the day patrons were kept engaged with antique engines and horse powered milling demonstrations providing a glimpse into the past.

For children there was a magic show on the town oval, mechanical bull rides, face painting and all the fun of the fair.
