    Broome - Kimberley / 450 km

    May 20, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Long drive again today. First 220 km on Northern Highway to Derby and then 230km via Gibb river road more or less on dirt roads to the Camping ground nearby Bell Gorge in the King Leopold Conservation park. Driving on Gibb river road was not relaxing due to quite rough road conditions and cattles crossing the road without notice out of the bush...

    Nearby Derby we made a short visit to the Aboriginal center of art. Very interesting movie about the culture, art and history of the Aboriginals from the Kimberly region.

    Beautiful landscapes while driving into the Kimberleys. Now camping here for two nights without power in the pure nature...

    First time since 1994 without access to the outer world for three days. Special situation for someone being online all the time. But there is not much to be missed....

    Geraldton - Denham / 435 Km

    May 8, 2019 in Australia ⋅ 🌬 22 °C

    Today was more or less a driving day. After disassembling the roof tent ⛺️ and having a coffee ☕️ in the cold we left Geraldton. In the interest of time we bypassed Kalbarri Nationalpark. We had seen it before and the children did not care 🤠.
    On the way to Denham we stopped at the stagmits after entering Monkey mia Nationalpark and little later at shell beach 🏖. Shell 🐚 beach consists a 100% of small white shells. Unfortunately most of them are now broken into little pieces. That was completely different last time. Thanks to Andy who gave us nets against the billions of flies. If you don‘t have one it‘s killing you!
    After arriving at Denham we spent some time in town and around our condominium and watched the beautiful sunset.
    For dinner we went into the most western Restaurant of Australia which is made completely out of little shells. The seafood served was delicious.

    Perth - Geraldton / 430km

    May 7, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Today we left Perth after getting our Landcruiser. The next 20 days we will drive more than 3‘000 km north and end up in the Kimberly Nationalpark north east of Broome.
    Part of that route (until Exmouth) we did 20 years ago. Still remember enough to be sure its worth it a second time. So much to see in between! Pinnacles, Kalbarri, Ningaloo and many more National parks 🏞.. Today we aleeady visited the Pinnacles Nationalpark. Wonderful! Can‘t wait for Monkey Mia, Corall bay and Ningaloo...Read more

    Wild Dolphins - Coral Bay / 585 km

    May 10, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Monkey Mia is also known for the wild Dolphins 🐬 who appear at the beach every morning where they get fed with fish 🐠 (10% of their daily needs).
    We watched the four dolphins (2 female with their calfs) right from the waterline. Funny how they keep turning a bit to the side which lets them watch the people by having one eye outside of the water.
    Later in the morning we decided to drive all the way up to Coral Bay. 585km in 5.5 hours with no traffic and only two stops.

    Off to Perth

    February 9 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Checked out about 10. Sat nearby having a drink and deciding what to do. Our flight was at 4pm so had a few hours to do something. Went to Southern Cross station, put our bags in a locker and had a walk to the Docklands. Saw some teams doing dragon boat racing.
    Went back to the station area for some shopping. I got 2 new pairs of shorts and immediately ditched the old ones. They had got to the stage where washing didn't seem to clean them anymore.
    Took the skybus to the airport and boarded to Perth. Picked up the hire car and waited around for Hannah's mum to arrive.
    All present and accounted for we drove to our accommodation. Initially had no power, after a quick whatsapp with only 3% battery on the phone remaining, we got it fixed.
    All hungry but not bothered about going out, I nipped out and got a takeaway pizza.
    Diet starts tomorrow.

    Chilling out in Perth.

    February 10 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Hannah's mum is based in the entrance way to our apartment, so Hannah and I escaped out the back door to head off for a run before it got too hot.
    Heather managed to get a full 11 hours sleep, so hopefully a good head start on the jet lag.
    Got back for a healthy breakfast and then went to meet Andrew for coffee overlooking the beach.
    Got in for a bit of play in the surf, which was fairly punchy.
    Then met Annie for a salad lunch. Very healthy!
    Back to home for a dip in the cold pool, followed by a sunset beer at the pub a few mins walk away.
    Ended up back at home having a bbq salmon. Tssk lovely.

    Cycling into Downtown

    May 4, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    In the afternoon Andy gave me a bicycle with which I went into downtown (10km) to spend some time in town at the water and in the shopping streets. Perth is still the nicest city of all visited during this trip. It also changed since my last visit 20 years ago but also on the positive side.
    Even after driving our big Campervan on the left side of the roads for three weeks, cycling in a big city 🌃 on the left side was a bit weird in the beginning. Although most of the way I could go on a very nice cycling 🚴🏽‍♀️ path.Read more

    Snorkling in Cape Range Nationalpark

    May 14, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Today we left Exmouth to explore some beautiful beaches in the park. At Oyster Stack beach it was beautiful for snorkling in the shallow water of the inner reef. We spotted a black tipped reef shark, a scorpion fish 🐠, two blue dotted rays and many more colorful fishes. Another stop we made at the marvelous Turquois bay (aerial pictures).Read more

    Karijini NP / Dales Gorge / 125 km

    May 16, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    In the morning we left Tom Price for the Karijini Nationalpark. After a short drive we setup our camping ⛺️ site with Andy and Monique. Soon after we entered the Dales Gorge where we spent almost half a day. The Gorge offered beautiful fauna, red rocks (iron), swimming in fresh water billabongs (Fortescue Falls and Fern Pool) and a very nice walk through the Gorge to Circular PoolRead more

    Exploring Melbourne

    February 8 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Was up and out early. Grabbed a pain au chocolate from the 7/11 and got the train to central Melbourne. The initial plan was to do a walking tour then visit what ever the tour guide recommended. The tour was free and the guide was excellent. Taught us lots about the history of Melbourne which is less than 200 odd years old.
    We finished the tour on the south bank of the river. This was close to the Eureka 88th floor sky tower. This has become a thing we do, therefore had to go up.
    Great views over the city and to the sea. A slight haze around, maybe from the bush fires?
    After that we took our friend Fiona's advice and visited the South Melbourne market. A old school style market, with lots of local produce.
    From there we walked to the War Memorial with unobstructed views up main roads both north and south.
    The plan was to meet Fi at an outdoor festival. So we picked up some ciders and got a spot to watch. Fantastic orchestra with some dancing. We all watched for a few hours before catching the train back to the hotel.
