“I’ll Never Forget the Picturesque Colour of theOcean”
This shot was taken just west of Esperance along the coast; I think the locals call it Eleven Mile Beach. My husband and I noticed a little path that looked as though you could 4WD all the way down to the beach. We thought there might be a reason they built the staircase in this picture though, so we decided to walk down it rather than drive along the path.
Apart from one other on the beach that day, we had it all to ourselves. I loved that it was just the two of us it felt so tranquil. The ocean was quite loud and rough that day, but the rock pools were incredibly refreshing and the perfect depth for exploring. I’ll never forget the picturesque colour of the ocean or the feeling of that soft white sand.
This image captures my husband after he had walked down the staircase (which actually curls down quite a few stairs). I’ll always be grateful to the locals who shared this secret spot with us.
This photo was shot just outside Mount Augustus on day three of our whirlwind road trip. For me this picture is the perfect example of the beauty of the Australian bush, it represents all that I love about Western Australia.
We embarked upon the 400km red earth road to Western Australia’s highest peak, Mt Augustus. We were blessed with a timeless scene; a magnificent view of the world’s largest rock slowly transforming through a medley of reds in the morning light.
Dr Rick Fenny is no stranger when it comes to road tripping in the outback of Western Australia. One of Australia’s most respected vets, who has cared for thousands of animals including the legendary Red Dog, Rick clocks up more than 5000 kilometres every couple of weeks tending to sick animals and checking in with his team of vet doctors and nurses at his vet clinics dotted across WA.
Virginia Willcock is the chief winemaker at Vasse Felix winery, where she turns beautiful Margaret River grapes into delectable wine. She lives in Margaret River town, walking distance from the main street and close to the river and bush.
The Margaret River region is just a three-hour drive south from Perth, and for anyone thinking about visiting the Margaret River region for five days (or more), Virginia shares her tips on some places you shouldn’t miss.
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.
