Mar 24, 2012 - DENMARK!!
DENMARK! Hjemme for en kort stund. Det mest danske over byen, udover navnet, var dog en hal der hed Bornholm. Besøget var dog også forbeholdt en køretur igennem. Men lidt sjovt var det nu alligevel. Derfra gik turen videre mod Margret River, men inden da skulle vi dog lige op og gå i trækronerne og nyder udsigten derfra. Dette skete i Valley of the Giants, hvor der 40 meter over jordens overflade, var konstrueret gangbro, hvorpå vi nød en dejlig udsigt ud over talrige trækroner tilhørende nogen af verdens højeste karri træer.Jump to full entry
Dec 30, 2011 - Onwards To Peaceful Bay
Fri. Dec. 30. Rain fell early this morning. We woke to the tap, tap, tapping of the rain drops on the roof of the camper van. With open windows to keep us cool through the night, I felt the mist entering through the window by my bed. The gentle rain kept us from hurrying out of bed. We did, however, manage to check out at ten. Lower Denmark Road is a scenic drive leading us from Albany. Our first stop at the hanging rock was nothing to write home about mostly because the misty wet weather interfered with the view. One bonus to the wet...Jump to full entry
Woke up early and set off to the Wilderness Discovery Center just outside of Denmark. The Valley of the Giants tree top and Ancient forest walk. The tree top walk takes you up a metal platform 40 meters above the forest floor, offering you canopy views of 20,000 hectares of towering trees. We meandered through the forest trails through the hollow trunks of the amazing Tingle Trees. It was awesome, the weather offered us some sun to enjoy the trees and forest views. We took a guided tour walk through the Ancient Forest and learned lots about...Jump to full entry
May 17, 2011 - The rains are here
Its raining, but boy its nice to hear it on the metal roof of the bus. We could see the storming building when we were walking around the blow hole in Albany but thew sky did break until we were set up in Denmark which was really good, nothing worse than setting up in the rain.I did feel sorry for a couple sitting in their car waiting for the storm to settle so they could set up their tent, praise God for caravans! After all the dry fields we have gone past I Cant believe how green everything is here, the grass is so green it took all my...Jump to full entry
Mar 12, 2010 - Denmark
Down through the southern part of Margaret River and then swing east into the Southern Forests. We have picked on the tiny town of Denmark on the Southern Ocean coast - again a magnificent unspoilt beach. Our base is a small cottage in the bush; in the past it was the telegraph office for the local (and now defunct) railway. Kangaroos next door and blue wrens on the porch. Driving down we even meet some Emus on the road. Who probably saved me from the speed trap around the corner. The reason for staying here is to visit the Tingle forest....Jump to full entry
Aug 24, 2009 - Drive to Denmark with Margo.
First thing this morning I called the Tax Department, but of course they could not give me an answer to my query about depreciation, and said that they will call back within 48 hours. I told them that I needed the information sooner than that, as I was preparing to leave the country. Next call was to MLC. I had called them, to see about withdrawing my meagre superannuation, and was promised last week that the paperwork would be sent that day, but still do not have it. The girl I spoke to said that it had been sent, but agreed to email me a...Jump to full entry
Feb 19, 2009 - And on to Denmark... SKOL!
Thursday February 19, 2009 Our first stop today was a walk to see the “Giant Tingle Tree”; tingle is another type of eucalyptus. The red tingle is a shallow rooted tree that sends out roots like buttresses as it grows older (it first grows tall and then wide, rather like us). The Giant Tingle, like many other examples, had been through a forest fire or two, but still survives as it was the centre base that burned out and the nutrients for the tree, as with every tree, flow up just under the outside bark. Our next stop was the “Tree Top...Jump to full entry
Dec 21, 2008 - Toffee, Honey and Ocean
After having Miranda wake us all last night with wetting her bed, I woke and made breakfast for the ferals...Pancakes with maple syrup....aren’t I such a great mother!!!! We then packed up everything wet and covered in debris from last night. All ready to go at 9.30am. Visited the Toffee factory and of course had to buy some toffee, surprise, surprise, and some BIT ON THE SIDE condiments!!! Sean lugged the bag back to the caravan muttering.... Rhiannon read the bible story that is applicable to today being the lead up to Christmas. Then we...Jump to full entry
Dec 19, 2008 - Peaceful Bay No longer....
Everyone slept in ...FINALLY!!! We then lazily packed up the caravan and sadly said our farewells to Jenny and Mark. We will miss them but promise to go there again next year!!! Hopefully, we will stay in touch via emails. We left around twelve and arrived in Walpole around 1.50pm. We got petrol and lunch and then headed to the Tree Top Walk in the Valley of the Giants. Sara was terrified to walk the bridge 40 metres above the ground whilst the other three ran ahead with no fear. It is quite scary as the suspension bridge just sways!!! Met...Jump to full entry
