“I Walked onto a Landscape That I Could Imagine Mars LooksLike”
We decided to explore the coastline of Broome and took a turn off at Gantheaume Point. We heard there were some amazing dinosaur footprints out there. We took a right off the path and walked onto a landscape that I could imagine Mars looks like.
We sat down on a secluded cliff, and as I looked up, my girlfriend was sitting cross-legged out on a rock looking at the ocean. The coastline really stood out to me. The colours mostly; the blue of the sky, the turquoise of the water, the gold of the sand and the red of the Earth. Such an amazing palette.
In this moment, I let all the stresses of my daily life go. For a split second I really appreciated how lucky I was to be experiencing it.
This was my first visit to Cable Beach, and I couldn’t wait to do the infamous camel ride at sunset. I look back at my time in Broome and Cable Beach with a smile and see it as the highlight of my journey around Australia.
On my last night in Broome I ventured out to photograph the stars with my best friend. I can never get used to the novelty of seeing a blanket of stars above me, making me feel both infinitely small and yet part of something large and powerful.
From new developments to timeless night skies, the Perth region offers countless ways to connect with the world’s oldest living culture. Perth may be a modern city with a recent transformation, but the world’s oldest surviving culture is very much alive here.
The big thing visitors don’t realise is that Margaret River offers much more than our world-class wine and food. The outdoor activities are now just as significant, not to mention the diverse arts and crafts scene. These are some of my favourite things to do that can be packed into a weekend escape to Margaret River from Perth.
