After 11 months and 40,000kms of road tripping around Australia, I thought I’d seen the best of Australia. I’d heard Karijini National Park was amazing by countless people, but nothing could’ve prepared me for the adventure that was in store. We took several hikes through the different gorges; I remember each being different from the one before.
Kalamina Gorge was by far the most special gorge to us. We had this place all to ourselves. With the rocks, water, and sunshine, it was truly special. We crossed the stream in this photo numerous times all the while being in awe of the giant rock walls surrounding us.
Karijini delivered more than I could have ever expected. There are so many more secret spots left that I would love to explore. It definitely won’t be too long before I return.
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.
New York-based travel writer, blogger and photographer Kate McCulley shares her travel tips from Perth to Karijini in ten days.
"Travelling up the west coast takes in some of the best diverse landscapes in Australia. From pink lakes to yellow deserts, red sandstone cliffs and glassy green swimming holes, you’ll be able to see a striking collection of Western Australia in just 10 days".
This picture captures a fond memory at Wellington National Park. What surprised me the most about this experience was that we were less than an hour from Bunbury and two and a half from Perth, yet we felt like we could have been miles away from anywhere.
