    • Day 18


      September 24, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

      Public holiday in WA for the Queen’s birthday, nothing open in Albany. Drove to Denmark, everything open, bought some foam to ease the hardness of the blow up mattress. Bought some lunch from the Bakery, Steak & Kidney Pie for Mick, Roast vegetable wrap for me and a very nice coffee. Denmark is such a pretty little town.

      Drove out to the Franklin National Park. Initially checked out Crystal Springs and Mandalay Beach. Mandalay so named due to the Mandalay come aground on that beach and the incredible luck in the crew being saved. Everyone in the settlement, although having nothing themselves, provided what they could to feed and house the crew then get them safely home – incredible story.

      Denmark, Western Australia

      February 15, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 25 °C

      Packed up from Rest Point and decided to only do a short leg today.
      Just down the road was the Tree top walk area through the tingle tree forrest, so we decided to pop into that, even though we had visited before.
      Managed to get on a free guided tour of the ancient forest area. Very interesting with a knowledgeable guide. Some great and splendid specimens of trees there.
      Back on the road to Denmark. Booked in to the Riverbend Caravan park, which is towards the back of Denmark. A nice area. The park is very basic, but we managed to get some power and water, eventually. We could have free camped right next door.
      Went into Denmark and had lunch and got some provisions. And a walk along the river area.
      Drove out to Ocean beach and had a walk by the ocean. A magic spot, as long as the wind is not blowing too hard.
      Back to the park for a relaxing evening and another walk by the river.
      Quiet night.
      In summary, a fairly rough and ready park and not very well organised. But a pleasant stay and the facilities are adequate. Recommended.
