Cape Range National Park day 3. 20180528

A day including cruising the Yardie¬†Creek, snorkelling at Turquoise Bay and early home. We also spied two bold dingoes on our trip into the park this morning, hanging out on the road and perhaps, plotting to con a naive tourist to give them some food. They looked much like a…

Cape Range National Park day 2. 20180527

Today started at a leisurely pace with some clothes washing done before we set off to the Park once more. Plans were afoot to both walk above and travel by boat on the Yardie Creek, but only a walk eventuates as boating was booked out. Aiming for next days instead….

Cape Range National Park day 1. 20180526

Today¬†was an easy day travelling as we covered the 180 km from Coral Bay to the Yardie Homestead camping ground via Exmouth and now being just short of the entrance to the Cape Range National Park. As we have already discovered this afternoon, this National Park is stunning, and we…

Coral Bay day 4. 20180525

It rained overnight! And quite an amount to the extent that the council had to bring in graders to patch up puddles and fill the ruts left by exiting vehicles. All good now but damage easily done given the deluge, soft sand and big vehicles. Otherwise a very quiet and…

Coral Bay day 3. 20180524

Just a lazy day to reflect, relax and rest. Weather fine, light breeze. Plenty of sap droppings on our vehicle from overnight condensation. Let’s hope for rain and strangely someone said there is some forecasted for tonight. Will believe that when we see it as we have not seen rain…

Coral Bay day 2. 20180523

Today was all about SCUBA diving and snorkelling on the Ningaloo Reef, a place that gives the Great Barrier Reef a run for its money. So spectacular. Most proud of my travelling companion who came on the dive trip and snorkelled two reefs and two other occasions to view the…

Coral Bay day 1. 20180522

After enjoying a sumptuos meal out last night in Carnarvon, enjoying the delicious fresh snapper and other tasty food plus wine, we set off a little later for today’s journey. Before we left town we visited the space museum and telecommunications centre. Carnarvon played a key role as a ground…

Carnarvon day 2. 20180521

Today’s highlight was visiting the Blowholes area near Pt Quobba just north of Carnarvon, being about a 140 km round trip. Potentially a dangerous area on the rocks there in wild weather and high seas. Today was relatively calm yet you can still see images of the roaring seas below….

Carnarvon day 1. 20180520

Left Shark Bay early and drove through to Carnarvon, a distance of about 320 km. Largely uneventful although we did need to be vigilant at times given the prevalence of feral goats along the highway. At least goats seem to have slightly more road sense than kangaroos, the latter being…

Shark Bay day 2. 20180519

Up early to get to Monkey Mia for the first dolphin feeding session for that day. After an easy 22 km trip looking directly into the rising sun, we arrived in plenty of time, joining about another 170 tourists for the show. Much care is provided to keep the tourists…
