    Sonnenuntergang in den Pinnacles

    January 4 in Australia

    Heute habe ich Perth in Richtung Norden auf dem Indian Ocean Drive verlassen. Zwischendurch ein Stopp in Lancelin eingelegt um in zuckerweisen Sanddünen zu spazieren. Abends das Tagesziel The Pinnacles Dessert erreicht und mitten in der Steinwüste den Sonnenuntergang über dem Meer genossen.

    Ca. 200 km Tagestour

    Lesueur National Park

    November 11, 2016 in Australia

    Unser erster Stopp heute war Greenhead, ein sehr beschaulicher Ort, an dem es nicht allzu viel zu sehen gibt. Nachdem wir uns den Steg angeschaut hatten, war auch schon alles gesehen😄 Dann gings weiter in den Lesueur National Park! Dort gibt es einen 18km langen Weg, der an allen Sehenswürdigkeiten dort vorbei führt🏞 Danach waren wir noch bei Sandy Cape! Das sind riesige Sanddünen direkt am Meer, auf die man klettern kann🏜Read more

    The Pinnacles

    May 15, 2017 in Australia

    Before we left Yanchep we had a final look at the koalas who thankfully were holding on tightly as the strong winds buffeted the branches they were sat on. We then did a short walk through the limestone gorge that had small caves and a natural bee hive where the honey comb was clearly visible. It was a very windy drive north (our little high top van felt it) through interesting desert / coast landscapes, including massive inland sand dunes and a tree full of flip flops! The Pinnacles are limestone formations within the Nambung National Park and scientists are unsure of how they were formed. One theory is that they were once tree trunks covered in sand and another is that they were once shells. Either way, it was interesting to walk around and the rain that had been chasing us all day didn't catch up with us until evening. While there we did spot this desert cockroach, quite different from other ones seen on our travels!Read more

    Letzter Stopp vor Perth, eine schöne Fahrt auf dem Indian Ocean Drive, Platz direkt am Meer.
    Später fängt es an zu regnen, es wird jetzt kalt hier, der Winter zieht ein. Morgen noch 20° tagsüber und 10° nachts. Da wird es auch in unserem Auto kalt.

    May 17, 2017 in Australia

    Left Northham at 8.15 to what was a chilly but clear morning. We made our way to the historic town of Toodyay, pronounced (2J) with plenty of charming heritage buildings. After taking what we thought to be a short cut but in fact became a long cut, we made our way through the Avon Valley (WA road signage is woeful ). Unsure of what road we were actually on we ended up with a silver lining to our wrong road and ventured into the town of New Norcia. We could see some magnificent buildings and on driving closer found ourselves at this idyllic settlement complete with a Spanish-style monastery and buildings linked to an Aboriginal mission which was run by Spanish Benedictine monks. The monastery continues to be home to the Benedictine monks and it is possible to join them in the 1,500 year old tradition for prayers-6 times per day. The New Norcia hotel has a sweeping staircase, high ceilings and wide verandah-a very upmarket Best Marigold Hotel ! You can enjoy a delicious meal and have a glass of their own Abbey beer or a wine from the Abbey wine range. This is certainly a calm peaceful and still place.
    Attached are photos of some of the buildings.
    Eventually finding our way to the Indian Ocean coast line we booked into our fantastic overnight caravan park at Cervantes. We drove to Hanson's lookout then to Lake Thetis which contains stromatolites and strombalites, one of the earths oldest living forms of life. They appear as circular mounds on the waters edge (see photo)
    Sunset was spent at the painted sands of the Pinnacles desert , which is studded with thousands of limestone pillars. These are remnants of compacted seashells that over millennia subsequently eroded. We took Mawson our little penguin mascot to enjoy the Pinnacles with us -he enjoyed having his photo taken at this amazing
    place ! Our evening was complete watching a beautiful sunset over the Indian ocean.

    Ein Ausflug auf den Mond

    November 9, 2015 in Australia

    Nachdem wir die Sanddünen von Lancelin verlassen haben geht die Reise weiter nach Cervantes, um die vielgepriesenen Pinnacles in der Abendsonne zu sehen. Die Felsformationen sehen zwar ziemlich ulkig aus und wenn man überlegt, was die Natur so alles Bizarres zustande bringt auch recht faszinierend... Ob es tatsächlich eine Mondlandschaft gleicht lässt sich - auch in Ermangelung der Vergleichsmöglichkeit mit dem Original - letztendlich schlecht beurteilen.
    Auf dem nahegelegenen Campingplatz bekommen wir einen Stellplatz direkt hinter den Dünen... Toll gelegen und gaaanz schön windig!!! 😆 Aber eine warme Dusche in den wieder absolut makellosen Duschen befreit von der klebrigen und salzigen Sandschicht auf der Haut und lässt alles gleich noch viel entspannter wirken 😉
    Heut Abend lassen wir uns HotDogs 🐕schmecken... Campingleben pur!
