“The First Thing We Noticed Was the Massive KarriTrees”
Driving into this area from down south was a beautiful drive and the first thing we noticed was the massive Karri Trees. We took a few detours and just drove through the various forest drives, camping for a night among the trees.
We drove through the area quite a few times, being able to see the forest in different lighting was awesome. Some days were a bit foggy other days it was brilliant sunlight. There are heaps or tracks and also a few walks and lookouts. Definitely a hidden gem and a place we really loved visiting.
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.
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.
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.
The one thing that will drive you to make the easy three and a half hour drive south of Perth to Margaret River, at any time of year, is the prospect of indulging as many of your passions as possible in a single day.
Home of the Bungle Bungle Range, the Purnululu National Park was a highlight of Lorna Hendry’s family adventure through the Kimberley. This ancient place known to the Kija people for thousands of years was virtually unknown to the outside world until 1983, Lorna says it’s now a must-see Australian icon.
