“To Be so Close to Perth and yet Feel like We Were in the Middle of Nowhere WasAmazing”
This picture was taken on one of the 4×4 tracks that go through Nanga Brook just out of Perth. My friends and I had just pulled off down a small track and parked our two cars. What surprised me the most about this place was the absolute silence, it was almost deafening but incredibly tranquil. To be so close to Perth and yet feel like we were in the middle of nowhere was amazing.
This photo captures only a tiny glimpse of what Nanga is. What it doesn’t show is the muddy, exciting 4×4 tracks that were behind me, the tire swing my friends and I were playing on like children and the quietly flowing river.
Looking back on this day I feel very nostalgic, it was an incredibly peaceful day worth remembering.
