    Oyster Stacks

    March 1 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 33 °C

    The next stop on our bucket-list for today was Oyster Stack. It's time to snorkel again 🤗

    We arrived here around 11.10 am and not ready directly to hit the water.
    It is a very rocky coastline here and I got sine problems to get into the water, stepping on something sharp, losing my balance and almost falling down on the rocks... Kara gave me a hand in the last second.
    I got a wound under my foot and on my leg but nothing deep or serious so we went in anyway.
    This must be the best place for snorkeling ever.
    There are corals and fishes everywhere, just a few centimeters away from the rocks 🤩😍
    We were so close to them that was just amazing!
    We saw so many fishes, so many different species and all so closed to us! Just unbelievable.

    Cape Range National Park (ctd.)

    September 11, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    The wind we had been anticipating showed up on our first full day on the Cape. It didn't deter us from visiting the beautiful beach at Sandy Bay and Meg convinced Roy to attempt some beach fishing from our campsite in the afternoon (they had to admit defeat to the wind!) and then we hid behind the shelter of the van for the remainder of the afternoon - and we ate inside for the first time for a while!
    After a windy night we decided to start Tuesday with a walk in the nearby Mandu Mandu Gorge. An easy 3km trail up the river bed on loose stones then followed the Gorge walls up to the rim which provided great views back to the blue waters of the reef beyond. We drove down to check out Oyster Stacks (we'd heard the snorkelling was great) and it looked protected from the wind so decided we'd come back at high tide to hit the water.
    After lunch back at the caravan we headed back to Oyster Stacks just before high tide...and as we arrived so did the wind! Unfortunately this spot can only be snorkelled when the tide is above 1.2m to avoid damaging the coral so it was our last chance to do it before we left Cape Range. We bravely donned our snorkelling gear and headed into the chop...we didn't last long! The coral and fish life was amazing however the choppy water made it tough going for the kids who all admitted defeat after about 10 minutes. Roy headed back out for another look while the rest of us wrapped up in towels to escape the wind! It would be an amazing spot on a still day.
    Another dinner inside the caravan to avoid the wind meant we were lucky enough to have a black footed wallaby makes it way right past our door on its way to its evening grass grazing.

    Oyster Stacks

    January 19 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    Ein weiteres Highlight des Cape Range National Parks ist der Snorkelspot "Oyster Stacks". Die Korallen sind hier sehr nah an der Oberfläche, deshalb kann man nur bei high tide schnorcheln. Abgesehen von unserer Bootstour ist das der beste Schnorchelspot am Ningaloo Reef, der direkt vom Strand zu erreichen ist. Wir sehen gelbe Fischschwärme, Baby Haie und eine riesen Muschel die eine blaue Öffnung hat und ca. 1/2m groß ist.Read more
