09/08/2023 – Midwest-Gascoyne Exercise

Midwest-Gascoyne Exercise - 23 September 15,16 &17

Preparations for the MidWest-Gascoyne Regional Exercise are well underway – Are you up for the Challenge? Do you want to put your skills to the test?

If so, the Midwest-Gascoyne Regional Exercise weekend is on again. The scenarios are fully realistic which will challenge you and expose you to the full gambit of SES operations and leave you with a feeling of “this is what it is all about.”

The MWG exercise will be conducted in the area around the Wagoe campsite facility approximately 20 kilometres south of Kalbarri.

  • Arrive Friday for a kick-off Saturday morning
  • Round Robin training Saturday morning
  • Scenarios Saturday afternoon
  • Fellowship Saturday night around a fire
  • Scenarios Sunday morning.


If you like, stay Sunday afternoon and have a look around and leave Monday morning.  Wagoe is a popular reef fishing spot, which offers chalet-style accommodation as well as caravan bays. We have booked the whole camp. There are 8 chalets which you can swag in or you can utilise the caravan park section.

The ‘’deal”:

Self-cater for all meals except Saturday night—big fire, stew, and damper   it doesn’t get any better!

What to bring:

Own sleeping gear, own food, basic SES equipment (GPS, Compasses and of course full PPE)
