A fascinating look at historic Geraldton

So here we are, in Geraldton where we've spent the past few days catching up with Corey's Aunt and cousin, getting our car serviced, catching up on well overdue blog posts (limited phone range has made it sooooo hard!) and immersing ourselves in the history of a prolific shipwreck coastline. I had in my mind …

Jurien Bay sunsets

After a week in Perth, we were itching to get back to some bush camping and gorgeous locations and Sandy Cape at Jurien Bay didn't disappoint.  We spent three nights at the Sandy Cape Campground, using it as a base to explore the Pinnacles and chilling out on the beach. On the way to the campground, …

Catching up in Perth

We’ve said a couple of times how meeting people has been one of the best aspects of our trip so far. We’ve been lucky to meet some fabulous people so far, some of which we know we will keep in touch with long after our trip has finished. Bill and Belinda and their family are …

Margaret River Magic

Unlike Pemberton (which ended up being an awesome surprise), Margaret River was definitely on our must-do list. We had heard that it was a fabulous area to explore and so we ended up booking into Conto Campground, approximately 20km south of Margaret River township for four nights. Recently renovated, Conto Campground was very roomy with …

Tranquility in the Southern Forests

There is just something special about canopies that reach for the sky and stand majestic in solidarity, don't you think? I’ve been a big fan of forests for a long time as my million pics from Tassie would attest to. What can I say, there’s just something about trees that I adore. This trip has …

Down at the farm

Throughout one’s life, you meet people who become fabulous friends and even though they might move away from the vicinity of your day to day life, the friendship remains strong. This is definitely the case with my wonderful friend, Gemma. We met in Mildura, were both involved in numerous committees together for a few years …

Life’s grand at the Cape (le Grand)

Ok, so I’ll put this out there up front. We’ve got a new contender in our top 3 favourite places! Prior to arriving at Cape le Grand, our top three consisted of: Bay of Fires (Tas) Minnie Water (NSW) Flinders Ranges (SA) I haven’t quite figured out whether Minnie Water or Flinders Ranges has dropped …

Gold sparkles in Kalgoorlie

Kalgoorlie was the stop that we were prepared to take or leave when we were in the planning phase of our trip. If we made it there, all well and good but if it didn’t happen, then that was ok too. On our trip across the  Nullarbor we realised that we hadn't made plans for Easter …

Miles of the Nullarbor

The Nullarbor Plain, the holy grail of the big lap, a pilgrimage of nothingness that people either love or hate. We were never planning to do the Nullarbor slowly. Corey and I tend to subscribe to the ripping the bandaid approach on roadtrips - no mucking about, no extended breaks, just keep moving. But the …
