    Nice Little Beach

    December 21, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Wir starteten in den Tag mit einem guten Frühstück das bei dieser Unterkunft das Frühstück ausnahmsweise dabei war, was für ein Luxus. Heute wagten wir den zweiten Versuch und fuhren zum little Beach und diesmal hatten wir mehr Glück. Eine super schöne Bucht mit blauem Wasser und einem schönen Sandstrand zeigte sich uns. Wir tobten in den Wellen und genossen den Strand. Nach diesem Strand schauten wir uns ein wenig den Nationalpark an und beschlossen anschließend, da wir für diesen Tag einen Nationalpark Ticket hatten nochmals zur Aussichtsplattform zu fahren da es heute deutlich windiger war. Eine gute Entscheidung heute waren die Wellen noch größer und das Meer tobte und schlug die Wellen gegen die Wände. Wir beobachteten diese Schauspiel und schauten uns außerdem die super Aussichtspunkte des Nationalparks an. Hier hat man einen schönen Ausblick auf die Küste von Albany. Nach dem Nationalpark entschieden wir uns nochmals zum Emu Point zu fahren um eine Runde zu fischen. Als ersten fingen wir einen Tintenfisch und danach folgte noch eine Dorade. Beide durften heute wieder schwimmen da wir das Abend essen schon organisiert hatten. Auf dem Heimweg sahen wir eine ganze Gruppe von Kängurus wie sie auf einem Feld gemütlich einem Bauer die Ernte weg frassen.Read more

    Drive to Albany

    January 13, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Departing our idyllic chalet we headed east towards Walpole, driving through all manner of Karri and Marri trees. Coffee stop on the Top Deck then on to Denmark where we had an excellent lunch. We reached Albany shortly after 2pm and found our accommodation to be spacious and extremely well equipped.
    A short stroll brings us to Middleton Beach where we ate in the Three Anchors, whilst being entertained by a three piece band and some super whale photos.

    January 14, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    In the morning after a hearty breakfast we visited the ANZAC museum just along the scenic drive. It was very well presented, with each of us being given a card with which we were identified with a character from WW1 and were able to follow their story through various battles. At 10.39 we joined Tony for an entertaining tour of the fort, which dates from a similar period to the Verne on Portland. After coffee we shopped at IGA, fuelled the car and bought stamps for cards.
    An afternoon walk along the boardwalk was very enjoyable topped off with Tasmanian bubbles to complete the day.

    Van Life

    April 29, 2017 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 15 °C

    Yesterday we picked up a rented camper van from Perth that we have for the next 56 days until we need to return it to Darwin. After admin, checking the van over and food shopping we didn't get started til late afternoon. However, we managed to get as far as Kojonup (300km) by sunset but left the unpacking until daylight this morning. Already it feels completely different from the East coast as soil seems to have been replaced by red dust/sand. Looking forward to settling into van life for the next eight weeks. We got to Albany today and after a quick look around town and lunch we went up to the viewpoint and Anzac memorial at Mount Clarence. It has amazing views over the Princess Royal Harbour and King George Sound. It's where all the ships carrying 42,000 soldiers, from both NZ and Australia, left for the war in Europe (WW1) but were diverted to Egypt. Booked into a camping holiday park and have enjoyed the pool and spa this evening, although trying to convince ourselves that it's not our scene!Read more

    We have now moved onto Emu Beach which is just down the road from Albany this is the third time we have stayed at this park and it has had some more improvements, we are on site 7 opposite an ammenities block which has just been renovated. The site is a double slab plus about 6 metres of grass to park the car on or set up a run for the pups.
    We have booked in for 4 nights so will get in some sightseeing around Albany again (we really do like Albany).

    September 25, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    What a beautiful place! We stayed 4 nights at Albany and were lucky to have 2 days of sunshine before the weather turned foul and it was extremely windy and rainy.

    While the weather was good we checked out the Natural Bridge, the Gap, the historic whaling station, blow holes, the National Anzac Centre and the Desert Mounted Corps memorial. The National Anzac Centre was awesome and we spent many hours here.

    We hunkered down in the van for the following 2 days as the weather closed in. We even had to close the van roof as the wind was damaging the poptop and forcing rain inside.

    Very cold...temperature 6-14°

    February 17, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    Woke up to another grey overcast and cool day. First call of duty was a visit to the long drop toilets (smelly) and our time sitting there was made more interesting with the heightened anticipation of a bite on the bum at any stage.

    After a morning walk on the beach, we packed up ready to head to Albany.
    Short and easy drive and we had prebooked with Rose Garden caravan park at $38 per night for 2 nights. Much confusion with Site allocation due to people overstaying their booking but we got settled in a good site in the end. During the site shuffle around, front office obviously had more confidence in our reversing ability than was sensible, when they tried to get us onto an awkward battleax site. Once we had informed them of the error of their ways, they put us on a much easier to handle site.

    Drove to Albany for Fish and chip lunch, at multi award winning Ocean and Paddock shop. We can confirm that the awards were justified.

    We drove round to the Gap and Natural Bridge. Great experience, especially with the platform overlooking the Gap. Amazing to witness the power of the ocean against the rocks.

    We drove to the Blow Holes, but since they were a no show today, we did not walk all the way down.

    All of these attractions charged a fee, but our annual national parks pass was valid and we have already more than made up the purchase cost of $27.00 (with concessions).

    Back to town and a quick visit to IGA (the only shop open in Albany of Sunday)

    Bank to the park for a light supper and watched a bit of TV.

    On the second day of our stay, we popped about 500m down the road for a game of golf at the Albany golf course. This is a links course, right on the sea front, with some great views out over the harbour area. We had an enjoyable nine holes, with some of the holes having steepish sides sloping in to the middle of the fairway, which is the way I think all golf courses should be built. Certainly helped the score a little bit. The course was in great condition, and a recommendation from us.
    Spent the rest of the day around Albany and back at the park, relaxing. A walk down at the beach for a great sunset, before a quiet night.
    Overall, we enjoyed our time in Albany. Rose Garden caravan park is to be recommended, even if their site admin is a bit bonkers. Brand new ablution block and other facilities.
