    Kalbarri (postscript)

    September 21, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    For the first time on the trip, we uploaded a post before the day was done...and then there was more to add!
    After spending hours lovingly collection green grass and throwing it over the fence for the goats at Murchison House Station, Finn had Roy join him in the barn to say hi to the goats again. Unfortunately for Finn he got in between a goat and its grass - and came off second best! A butt in the thigh didn't rip his shorts but managed to puncture a hole through his skin!
    Our first hospital visit for the trip (and hopefully the last!) saw Roy and Finn at Kalbarri Emergency Department late in the afternoon. Some steri-strips and glue applied, they returned to camp - Finn vowing to never go near a goat again!

    Kalbarri (Kalbarri National Park)

    September 21, 2017 in Australia ⋅ 🌫 7 °C

    Owing to the way it wraps around the town, Kalbarri's National Park offers some stunning contrasts from gorges inland to dramatic coastline vistas. We only had a day to explore so decided to give the longer walks a miss (we're almost "gorged out"!) and just head to the main scenic spots. The great thing about this National Park was that we could do a couple of really short walks and still see some of the best scenery on offer. We checked out Nature's Window with its fabulous view up the River and then headed to the Z Bend Lookout for another, equally impressive view. For the first time EVER the kids actually asked if we could do one of the longer walks...Murphy's Law at its best! Another one to add to the next time list!
    We headed back through town and along the coast to the southern section of the park. We stopped for morning tea at Jake's Beach, a famous surfing spot for those skilled enough to negotiate the rocks, but there was no one in the water so continued on to the Red Bluff Lookout which was another short walk, this time along the cliff top with great views up and down the coast. We did some whale spotting and then decided to escape the wind and head back to camp for an afternoon of fishing and goat feeding!
    We stopped off briefly at Blue Holes which would be an amazing snorkelling site when the tides were right (too high for us today and too cold to be in the water!).

    Kalbarri (Murchison House Station)

    September 20, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    We farewelled Denham and stopped to check out Shell Beach on our way back to the highway. The glaringly white beach is made up entirely of the shells of the Cockles that live in the highly saline water - apparently they are 10 metres deep in some places and the beach itself stretches for over 70km!
    Back in the car, we headed further south towards Kalbarri and noticed a distinct change in the scenery as we continued further south beyond the 26th parallel latitude - we started to see full sized trees and fields of green again! The wildflowers bordering the road into Kalbarri put on an impressive show and we turned off just before town to stay at Murchison House Station. After weeks at the beach we thought a bit of riverside camping might be a nice change. We opted for the Homestead Camp which offered the best of both worlds - bush camping along the Murchison River and access to flushing toilets and showers at the homestead. We spent a relaxing afternoon fishing, meeting the resident goats, alpacas, geese, chooks and dog and it was finally cool enough to have a fire that we could actually sit around to get warm!
