Kalbarri to Dalwallinu
16.08.2015 - 18.08.2015 19 °C
Sunday Aug 16 day 70
Left Kalbarri and drove out of town to Red Bluff Lookout where we did the walk out to the point and took some photos.
We then went up another track to Mushroom Rock which Rodney had heard was magnificent but when we got to see it, it didn't meet our expectations.
Continuing on we decided to have a look at Castle Rock.
And followed this up with viewing The Natural Arch.
We were all cliff viewing out so we drove on till we reached Port Gregory and then had a look at Pink Lake.
We drove back to Northhampton and had lunch in the picnic area behind the Info Centre. It's Sunday and everything is closed so we continued on into Geraldton and found a supermarket open where we bought provisions for tonight. We then drove on to Dongara and took advantage of the towns free campsite near the showground.
Mon Aug 17 Day 71
After leaving Dongara we drove south to Leeman where we had morning tea. There was a small island called Shag Island just off the coast and it was covered in birds.
We continued on to Cervantes where we had lunch then drove out the The Pinnacles in Nambung National Park. It is simply amazing the number and shape of hundreds of limestone pillars in the shifting sand.
It was raining and the forecast indicated that it would continue so Rodney couldn't do and star shots tonight or any time soon so we decided to head inland slowly towards Bobs brother Richards at Koorda. We stopped overnight in Drummond Reserve near Moora.
Tues Aug 18 Day 72
In the morning we drove into town and took a photo of the hotel which has unusual (and dangerous looking), attachment near the roof line. also took a phot of Hiroe near a draft horse statue and mural.
We have been travelling all day in fields of wheat and canola with the occasional lupin patch.
We had lunch at Buntine then turned south to Dalwallinu where we booked into a caravan park for the night.
