    🏄🏄‍♀️🏄‍♂️

    May 27 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    After a longgggg 50km corrugated road, we arrived at Red Bluff Campsite at Quobba Station. We were recommended to stay here but a couple of people, we know why 😍 situated behind a huge red cliff is a awesome campground with fancy safari tents and normal camping spots, a cute little shop selling yummy mango smoothies and burgers, and lots of surf spots.

    We only spent a night here as bad weather was on its way, and would definitely return.

    After here we checked out the blow holes, and blow holes bay and went for a snorkel. We took a selfie infront of the 'king waves kill' sign (seems to be the thing to do), and then headed back to Canarvon for a couple of nights in a cabin with a decent shower 🚿

    Nervous sharks everywhere!

    May 26 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Francois Peron National Park you beauty! We were lucky being able to visit here - the roads had been closed due to rain (all 4x4 driving through sand) to prevent everyone getting bogged, so we were chuffed when they were opened the day before we head off.

    What an incredible place, we jumped on the paddle board and worked our way around Big Lagoon - a huge lagoon surrounded by bright red cliffs and crystal clear waters. We managed to spot Nervous Shark (literally named because they're so hard to spot), turtles & rays. 🦈

    No monkeys here!

    May 25 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    A little update on our trip now that we have decent reception at last!

    We spent a few days exploring the gorgeous Shark Bay. We started off at Monkey Mia, a secluded caravan park alongside a gorgeous coastline. Monkey Mia is known for their wild dolphin interaction, where wild dolphins come into the bay every morning to have a fish for brekkie. At first we thought this may not be too ethical, as feeding them could prevent them from needing to fish, however they only give the dolphins 10% of their morning feed and often they don't even take the fish 🤷🏼‍♀️ it was pretty cool seeing wild ones up close, and a cute turtle even popped his head up!

    We chilled here for a day and night, checked out the famous shell beach (one of 2 beaches in the world made entirely of shells, did some paddle boarding and went for dinner at the local restaurant.

    The following night we found an epic spot called Eagle Bluff where we camped on the sand, it was truly stunning watching the sunset over the ocean with a BBQ and a bottle of red 🍷

    Skywalk

    May 23 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    Kalbarri National Park was incredible, huge cliffs and boulders surrounding green gorges. The skywalk was only built last year and gave us a Birdseye view of this incredible park. We checked out a few of the commonly visited sites, including the Z bend and Nature's Window.

    Driving through the town was pretty sad though, the recent cyclone had caused heaps of damage and ripped off lots of roofs. Accomodation was pretty non existent, so after some hikes and exploring we headed on our way....🌪️

    Storms coming....

    May 22 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 23 °C

    This morning we drove up to check out The Pinnacles desert in Nambung National Park. We visited here with my family a couple of years ago, it really is an incredible place! Hundreds of strange limestone structures up to 30,000 years old.

    The sun continued to stay out whilst we visited the gorgeous Jurien Bay which is famous for sea lions. Unfortunately the oceans were too rough to go for a paddle, so we headed inland to find a campground as far from the storm as possible.

    We camped at Elbenjo, which is owned by a lovely couple who rescue and raise injured/orphaned animals. Just as we had set up the tent a huge storm rolled in, so we headed undercover to cook dinner and drink some wine. The owners introduced up to Felix, a few week old Joey they are raising after his mother being hit by a car. 🐾

    Rays!!!

    May 19 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Hamelin Bay was a treat, so many rays! We then drove around Margaret River mouth to the beaches to check out the surfers and for some lunch.

    A couple more wineries later (it's rude not to), we found a secluded camp site where we had a big clean of the back of the truck and had an early night.

    The following day we got up early to head to Bunbury to get Daz's breaks checked, and that evening we went to the local pub to see Ash Grunwald. Was awesome to see some live music again. We met a lovely couple at the campground where we joined them for some beers before the gig, and the following morning we woke to them having treated us to brekkie! So kind! 🎸

    Yesterday we kept heading north through Freo where we stopped for a quick dip, up through Perth and camped near Lancelin.

    Today we're heading to the Cervantes! ✅

    Margs

    May 17 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 23 °C

    We've spent a wonderful few days exploring Margaret River and surrounding areas. Filled our days with wine & beer tasting, cheese tasting, checking out beaches and horse riding!

    There are SO many wineries in Margs, all in very close proximity which is awesome! The town is super cute, filled with bars and cafes, and surrounded by green paddocks and serene farmstays. We stayed in Peppermint Cottages Monday night which was great, a good spot for a decent shower and for Lachie to use the oven to make granola!

    We visited Jesters Flat and went horse riding which was so fun. Jesters flat is stunning; a big open outdoor fireplace, teepee tents for hire, and a cool inside area with comfy couches and saddles hanging off the beams. We had a great ride on Stacey & Lily through the farmland and bush. Paul the owner even gave us a few contacts to go mustering when we reach the Kimberley's! 🏇

    Today we're heading to Hamelin Bay with the hope of spotting some stingrays

    Time for a climb

    May 15 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

    Saturday Arvo we visited the granite Skywalk at Castle Rock, wowie!!! After a steep uphill hike, and a mad scramble to the top we were met with magnificent views over the stunning Porongurup National Park and beyond.

    We then checked out Albany which was pretty cool, and treated ourselves to some lunch before topping up on water and groceries.

    Today Lachie had a go at zorbing, where he sat in a big blow up ball with water and rolled down a hill. I decided to give it a miss..... after this we checked out the incredible elephant rocks and the surrounding national Park, before heading to Ducketts Mill Wines & Denmark Farmhouse. We sampled some delicious cheese and wine (and took a few home), and drove through Denmark which was a cool town full of cafes & bars.

    Tonight is a simple rest stop before we head off tomorrow for more exploring. 🍷

    Another furry visitor!

    May 13 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Thursday we visited the incredible Wave Rock and Hippos Yawn in Hyden. It was a good 4 hour drive but worth it, Wave Rock is amazing! Never seen anything like it. Hippos Yawn was a short walk so we went and checked that out as well.

    Friday we camped at the stunning East Bay Campground near Two People's Bay Nature Reserve. Such a good find!! Beachfront camping, and although a little chilly we did a nice walk along the beach and had a swim. Lach went for a Kite as the sun was setting and I watched with a beer in hand!

    Once the sun had set and I began cooking dinner, I got a fright when a huge furry creature ran into my foot! I let out a massive scream (Lachie once again thought I was being dramatic) and after realising it was a Bandicoot (and that he can't fit in our engine), we watched him scurry around eating beetles. He was the best! We were also visited by several kookaburras! This morning we did some yoga, went for a paddle and had a swim. 🐭

    First stop in WA

    May 11 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Well we made it across the border and to our first stop in WA - Cape Le Grand National Park. Wow. Never have I ever (good drinking game)seen such crystal clear waters and pearly white sands. A true hidden gem. We spent the last couple of days swimming in the calm waters, hiking through the park and camped at the stunning Lucky Bay Camping ground.

    Last night we treated ourselves to a motel for the night - we were in for bad weather and didn't fancy getting washed away. It was pretty nice having a long hot shower, and watching an actual TV! We've woken feeling rejuvenated and ready for more exploring of this incredible state. 🇦🇺
