    Endless Road

    January 16 in Australia

    Heute stand die erste Etappe zurück in den Süden an. 710 km schier endlose Straße von Coral Bay bis Geraldton! Über 400 km ging’s nur gerade aus ohne irgendwelche Siedlungen nur vereinzelt mal ein Roadhouse um Treibstoff aufzufüllen ⛽️
    Auf der Straße kaum PKW‘s nur Road Trains riesige Lastzüge mit einer Länge von über 36 m die das Outback mit allem was benötigt wird versorgen.
    Die Landschaft war trotz allem beeindruckend endlose Weiten mit Buschland, der Sand feuerrot, der Himmel strahlend blau und die Hitze äußerst drückend.
    Zur Belohnung bin ich am Abend in ein Restaurant gegangen und hab lecker Fisch gegessen 😊
    Anschließend hab ich mich noch einer Gruppe angeschlossen und bin auf einen Hügel hoch gefahren, hier steht ein Kriegsdenkmal mit perfekter Aussicht auf Geraldton.

    May 17, 2017 in Australia

    A short drive this morning but before we got to Geralton we stopped at Greenough, a ghost town where alongside the bent gum trees (due to the wind) the stone built buildings were all built by British convicts. In Geraldton we have been busy, walking around the heritage trails, the town and a brilliant museum that we will visit again tomorrow to see more exhibits. We also went for a guided talk at a memorial for HMAS Sydney 2 that was sank off the coast here in WW2, killing all 645 crew. The memorial was very well thought out where everything there was symbolic. It was completed before they had located the position of where it was sank yet the statue of a mother looking out to sea happened to be facing the actual direction of where the ship is. The museum had some 3D photos of both that ship and German one that sank at the same time. Tonight we have had a BBQ using one of the many ones at the newly developed waterfront park (we're ashamed to admit that the sausages were actually kangaroo and really tasty!). The wind has died down now and the sun shining brightly again making it a lovely 26 degrees. Apparently the weather we have been having since we have been in Australia has been unseasonably good as it's well into Autumn here. That seems to be the first time we have heard that in our year of travels, it's usually the opposite!Read more

    Day 2: Geraldton

    May 18, 2017 in Australia

    We decided to stock up on food today for the next five weeks as we travel North because food shops become both more scarce and expensive. While filling the van it was confirmed that the two of us have become three (or more) as we have a resident mouse who has taken a liking to our chocolate, pasta, nuts and breakfast cereal. This is the time when we need Dave 'serial mouse killer' Warwick on the team! Instead, we have set traps and poison... This afternoon we had a personal guided tour at the Australian Meteorological Service just out of town. We saw both the traditional and modern way weather data is collected, the highlight being the release of a weather balloon that will travel up to 53 thousand feet collecting data. We then went back to both the maritime museum and the warship memorial before walking along the esplanade to see the docks, rare sea lions and sunset. We learnt about a Dutch ship that sank in the 1600's and part of the load were these ballast stones they were going to take to Jakarta to build a castle. We saw similar ones around Sri Lank and Malaysia. We also had time for a quick play in the park! Seriously we did, there is a great electronic game for two players.Read more

    WA - Geraldton "Streetart"

    December 29, 2016 in Australia

    Nächster Halt Geraldton, eine verhältnismäßig große Stadt mit hübscher kleiner Einkaufsstraße.

    Hier haben sich die Künstler ausgetobt, neben bunten Wegmarkierungen finden sich hier jede Menge Graffitis und Bilder an den Wänden.
