Walking into Greens Pool in Denmark the first thing that caught my attention was the sign that said ‘in the interest of safety can you please refrain from spear fishing in the months of December until March’. I love how you have the freedom here and they can rely on people doing the right thing.
The pools are gorgeous with crystal clear water and rocks to climb up and jump off. I spent a few hours here with my family and we also came back to watch the sunset. We were able to swim in shorts and the kids loved climbing up the rocks to plunge into the water. The large granite boulders also acted as a great place to sit and dry off to watch the sunset. It was a beautiful natural swimming hole and we came back quite a few times.
My girlfriend and I took a trip down to the South West for the ANZAC Day long weekend and based ourselves in Porongurup. We had checked the forecast for the weekend and made the decision that Saturday would be the ideal time to climb Bluff Knoll.
I had heard about the stingrays at Hamelin Bay so we added Hamelin Bay as a place to camp. Every sunset we would walk down to the beach where 5 to 10 huge bull rays would basically beach themselves right at your feet.
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.

Broome's billion star nights, gateway to the Kimberley wilderness and famous giant tides, put reconnecting with nature high on the agenda of locals and visitors alike.
