“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.
As you leave Perth’s cityscape and enter the Golden Outback, the horizons spread ever wider and your view is ever-changing. Continue on through vast salt lakes and outback plains, and you’ll discover the legacies of gold rush pioneers, incredible wildlife encounters and some of the whitest beaches on Earth.
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.
130 million years of history are fossilised in the coastal flats around Broome. The prints are the most diverse and abundant on the planet, and the area is fast becoming known as “Australia’s Jurassic Park.”
