    Onslow

    October 6, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Very small place. Another mine area. Mining salt. We saw the conveyor belt out to the shop yesterday when we went down to the other beach. Soo hot here yesterday. 43 degrees. In the aircon most of the day. Late afternoon drive to the beach when temp dropped to 36. Nothing much here, but a nice little caravan park with sea views.
    Enjoying the aircon and Gary's catching up on washing everything while we have water. Next stop Exmouth area, Ningaloo Reef. Hard to get fresh water. We will have to conserve it.

    Spent 2 nights here. Great to see the ships up close. It was lovely to get some shade and power for air conditioning. It's been very hot. Red Dog monument is special. He used to roam around the town.

    Cleaverville

    September 30, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    Free camping here. Lovely private site right st the beach. Just a short walk down the track. I got eaten by sandflys. I spray heaps but they seemed to get in the caravan through the flyscreens. Not a pleasant experience. Last day there was 41 degrees. Too hot. We had to carry the dogs across the sand to the water. Thank goodness for a lovely swim when the tide came in. Great rock pools for the dogs to paddle in.Read more

    We are staying 3 days here. Cossack is a Historic town. Built after the cyclone in 1872 which defeated the area. The town was built when th e gold rush was on and parking was a big thing here until it moved to Broome. The town of Wickham is only a few kilometres away on the way to Port Sampson. There are about 2,300 residents. The town is owned by Rio Tinto mining. The whole area is mining, including Dampier, Karratha & Tom Price.Read more

    BARNHILL STATION

    September 6, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    5 days. Absolutely loved it. It got a bit windy the last couple if days. Thought about staying longer but the day we were due to leave the wind was worse. Sand blowing through the campsite. Pretty unpleasant, so we moved on. Spent some late afternoons on the beach around 4pm. Best time of day as the sun came down. Met a lovely family on the beach from Port Hedland, she gave me some information on where to stay etc. Will be stocking up there. Attended the roast night which was lovely. 3 course meal for $18 each and met some great people. All from Perth, heading home after spending the winter in Broome.
    Fantastic rock formations and caves on the station. We were allowed to drive to the beach and park due to my hip issues. Lovely staff. I did attempt the cliff going down on the first day and big walk then the steps up. I made it but the pain set in. Drove down the next few times. We had homemade pies & a vanilla slice for lunch on Monday as a treat, all made on the station. Yum. Loved our stay.

    Broome

    August 27, 2019, Indian Ocean ⋅ ☁️ 22 °C

    What a place. Just love it. It's not what we expected. We are staying at the Discovery Park at Town beach. A water site. Just perfect. We love swimming with the dogs here. Safe and water very calm. We have missed the ocean so it was fabulous to see and feel it again. The colour of The water and landscapes are amazing. Wanted to go to Dampier Penninsula to free camp and look around but we've heard the unsealed road is 86km of corrogation. Not good, so have to give it a miss. There's a church up there that has an alter built of shells. Looks lovely in the photos.Read more
