I was really blown away by Giants Cave as all of my other cave experiences felt more staged.
I was surprised to find at Giants Cave you were given a torch and sent in to explore. There were no guides and no lights and you just followed the safety ropes. In the middle you could turn off your torch to pitch the cave into complete darkness, which was pretty incredible to experience.
There were a lot of ladders and tight sections, and it really felt like you were exploring the cave structure on your own. It was a real surprise and something we all really loved.
The Margaret River Surf Pro was on when I was in town and it was a great bonus for us. The beach is set up like an amphitheater and sitting on the boardwalk watching the world’s best surfers was a real treat.
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.
In Western Australia the journey really is the destination. For me the south west is a mix of rugged natural landscapes, history and fresh local food. You taste the region, as much as you see it, and this culinary road trip takes in the best of the coast, nature and food from WA's south west.
Time for some myth-busting: the assumption that the Western Australian winter involves a momentary dip in temperature and a couple of extra clouds is just plain wrong! With two climates to choose from, Western Australia does winter cool and crisp or warm and wonderful.
