Coles Track – Point Nepean NP

When at home and not travelling I volunteer once at week at the local Visitor Information Centre in Dromana. Before covid19 hit we had an associated walking group who would take a walk together once a month somewhere on the Mornington Peninsula. This enabled us to give accurate advice to visitors who came into the …

Crossing the Nullabor, Fraser Range Station to Madura

The next day our journey was about 400kms. Along the way today we were going to stop at quite a few little roadhouse stops. We would also drive along a 146.6 km straight road stretch. This sounds like it could be boring but in actual fact, even though it was straight, it had quite a …

Initially we were on Highway 1 before turning onto the Coolimba-Eneabba Rd that took us across towards the coast where we joined onto Indian Ocean Drive (State Route 60). Along …

There’s a lot more to Western Flora Caravan Park than just camping

After a quick overnight stop in Geraldton we continued driving south. The Western Flora Caravan Park just off the Brand Highway in Arrowsmith was our next destination. Our Tom Tom sat-nav indicated we had arrived but we were in the middle of nowhere so we kept driving and eventually saw a signboard for it. We …
