The magic of Purnululu

So given we’d decided that we weren’t going to tackle the Gibb River Road, all that was left for us to do was to backtrack our way back into Derby.  We stopped into the Mowanjum indigenous centre as we had wanted to find a piece of artwork as a memento of our trip.  We loved …

Bumming around in Broome

By the time we left Karijini we were definitely hankering for a shower and as we made our way towards Broome, we decided to stop for the night at Indee Station. Indee Station was similar to many of the other Station Stays we’ve stopped at with demountable buildings and the obvious hallmarks of a working …

Colours of the Pilbara

As we headed North-East from Exmouth, we entered the region that we’ve been looking forward to the most on this trip… The Pilbara. I have to admit, I felt some trepidation as we made our way towards Tom Price and the Karijini National Park. After all, years of watching countless 4WD and camping TV shows …

Way out West-erly point of Australia

After we left Geraldton, we headed off again towards Denham and Monkey Mia. Our original plan was to stop at Kalbarri, but unfortunately, the roads leading into the national park were closed for several months so that the roads could be repaired, apparently due to the floods they had earlier in the year. So we …

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 …
