“We Realised We Were Not Alone That Morning on theJetty”
As we started our day we talked about there being something in the air at Monkey Mia that makes you feel like you belong, so it was no surprise to find that the word ‘Mia’ derives from the Aboriginal word for home.
The sun was rising over the water, which is a very rare sight in WA with its ocean being situated to the west. The sky transformed from a dark blue into reds and pinks, and as we sat there we realised we were not alone that morning on the jetty.
Calmly drifting around in the waters beneath us were green sea turtles, and fantail stingrays. Just offshore we could see a pod of dolphins and some seabirds catching their morning snacks.
I was on a tour from Perth to Broome and this shot was taken in the first gorge we visited at Kalbarri National Park. The guide took us to the Z Bend in Kalbarri National Park, where they showed us a cliff we could jump from into the water.
Kalbarri National Park was a place our family visited often when we were growing up on school holidays. The whole experience was incredible, to have so many rock pools and rock formations to explore without another soul in sight.
WA’s southern coastline is one of the most stunning in the country, with pristine beaches, divine scenery – and friendly resident kangaroos. Bruce Elder still remembers his first trip to Lucky Bay and reports on what makes Esperance his favourite coastline in Australia.
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.
