    Pink Lake und wilde Küste Kalbarri

    August 9, 2018 in Australia ⋅ 🌬 17 °C

    Bei stürmischen kühlen Wetter hatten wir mit 152 km heute eine kürzere Strecke nach Kalbarri vor uns....aber es galt der Weg ist das Ziel. Am Pink Lake machten wir unseren ersten Stopp und überzeugten uns, dass der See auch wirklich pink ist....😉😉😉...Ja das war er und sogar in verschiedenen Schattierungen ...Marc hatte Sorge gehabt, dass er wegen fehlendem Sonnenschein nicht pink wäre...alles gut. 😊😀👍

    Weiter ging der Weg zu Kalbarris wunderschöner wilder Küste ....😍....mit einer hohen bunten Steilküste und fantastischen zerklüfteten Felsformationen....
    wie schön....😍

    Hier hatten wir mittlerweile Sonnenschein 🌞☀️, aber auch solch einen Sturm🌬, dass es gigantische Wellen gab, Marc's neues Basecap von Sea Shepherd ...eine gemeinnützige Organisation zum Schutz der Wale..., vom Kopf wehte

    ...und seine Haare zu Berge standen....🤣😂😀😆 Das sah echt lustig aus. Das Bild möchte Marc denn aber doch nicht in unserem Blog haben😉😉😉😎😍
    Am frühen Nachmittag kamen wir in dem knapp 1400 Seelen Ort Kalbarri an...

    ....dummerweise fing jetzt auch noch die schon behandelte Wurzel eines Zahn's an zu muckern....Zahnschmerzen hatten mir gerade noch zu meinem Glück gefehlt...🙄😏😬😷🤕😖 Aber meine Zahnärztin hatte mir in weiser Voraussicht ein Breitband Antibiotikum zur Behandlung mitgegeben🤓...hatten wir doch gehofft, dass der Zahn die Reise über still hält....😏...mal sehen, ob es hilft....hoffentlich....🙏✊🍀🐞🐷🐖
    Auch von Tonga gab es von allen angeschriebenen Hotels keine guten Nachrichten....es ist tatsächlich alles ausgebucht....hhhhhmmmmm🤔🤨🤔...auf Vavau konnten wir noch Clamping buchen....luxuriöses Zelt mit Kingsizebett und Bad...
    aber nicht direkt am Strand....😔 Schade, aber nicht zu ändern....Wird garantiert trotzdem seeeehhhrrrr schön...und Clamping hatten wir schließlich noch nicht.😊😉😎🏝🏕🏖

    Pelikan Fütterung am Morgen und dann weiter Richtung Süden entlang der wunderschönen Küste von Kalbarri 😍 Am Abend zuvor haben wir auf unserem Campingplatz die größte Ansammlung an Motten gesehen die es vermutlich auf der Welt gibt und dazu „The Boss“ ihren Anführer 😱

    Kalbarri National Park

    January 6, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    We huren een auto, lenen een tent en we vertrekken naar het noorden vanaf Perth.

    We maken een tussenstop in New Nocsia, de kostschool waar Sab d’r vader vroeger op heeft gezeten. De monniken leven er nog steeds en het blijft indrukwekkend om de gebouwen te zien die in de middle of nowhere zijn gebouwd in de 19de eeuw waar Sab d’r pa 45 jaar geleden heeft rondgelopen.

    Na anderhalve dag rijden, door voornamelijk lege vlaktes, komen we aan in Kalbarri National park we blijven hier een paar dagen. Het park heeft prachtige gorges. Na behoorlijke afdalingen is onze beloning natuurlijk onze voeten afkoelen in het rivierwater.

    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!

    On route to Kalbarri

    May 19, 2017 in Australia ⋅ 🌬 55 °F

    First we stopped at the oldest town in Western Australia, Northampton, that had an old convent (photo of Louisa), a tank outside the RSL (their version of the British Legion) and other 'old' buildings much like the other places around here. Before we got to the pink lake we looked around an historical site at Port Gregory where they sent convicts to wait before they were hired out. It was aslo used as the local jail and hospital, although there isn't much left of the buildings even thiugh they are only 160 years old. The land around here continues to get more red and dusty and so amazes us how they manage to farm sheep and cattle here, as grass is non existent. We are seeing many of the small windmills in fields that are used to pump the water up for drinking and road trains that are allowed to be up to 36 meters long here. We had a look at a couple of the viewpoints along the Kalbarri coastal cliffs ad were very fortunate to spot a southern right whale coming up for air and diving down a few times, as they are only just starting to migrate past this area. As you can see from the photo, the wind really got up! Then it rained, first rain here since February! At least the kangaroos were happy as they seemed to all make a beeline for the puddles on the road.Read more

    Kalbarri National Park

    May 20, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 64 °F

    Early start this morning as we went on an organised tour at 7 am into the part of the canyons, at the National Park, that are otherwise currently closed to the public. Thankfully the fog cleared shortly after we arrived and we had beautiful skies until a massive downpour on our return at lunchtime. We are really pleased that we did it, as the views into the Murchison River gauge were spectacular. First we went to the West Loop lookout where the canyon's reflection in the water was faultless. The unusual rock layers were really obvious at Nature's Window were we stood on a ridge that had a window like feature. After tasty tea and cake we were taken to the final lookout at Z Bend where the gauge does as the name suggests! We spent the afternoon back at the coastal cliffs walking along boardwalks and looking out to sea where we had some fleeting views of whales.Read more
