Oct 27, 2010 - Geraldton & Jurien Bay

Click on an image to enlarge it. Geraldton & Jurien Bay - 27th to 30th October 2010 We travelled down the coastline calling into Port Gregory, we were driving into the wind all the way. It is the windy time of the year and that is just how it is. On the way into Port Gregory we saw the Pink Lake, some days it is pinker then others. The pink colour is due to a bacteria trapped in the salt granules. It is very pretty to look at. We passed through Northampton and then onto Geraldton. Geraldton is a city of 33,000 and its correct name is...

Jul 29, 2010 - Jurien Bay

We left home in our new home at 0430hrs on Wednesday the 28th of July 2010 and arrived at Jurien Bay caravan park at around 0915hrs. Once we had set up we had a poppy nap for an hour, then went and had a look around this small but growing town and shops. It is cold and windy but would be very nice in summer, as we strolled along the beach we realised that this is it for 12 months. When we got back, we were kicking back and recieved a knock on the door. An older man of 79 was standing there and said that he was a country singer. This man had...

Oct 5, 2009 - Jurien Bay

From Kalbarri we travelled another 395km south – via Geraldton and then took the coast road down to Jurien Bay. We found Jurien Bay to be a very nice little seaside town with all the shops and services and very popular with holidaymakers. It was still school holidays so quite busy but nevertheless we had a very pleasant stay here. This area is called the Turquoise Coast and certainly lives up to its name with the beautiful clear turquoise water. The temperature was a lot cooler here and the water just a bit too cold for swimming. However...

Nov 23, 2008 - Northampton to Jurien Bay, WA - Day 6 in Metallica

had a much appreciated lie in, staying in bed until nearly 9:00! before packing up the van & heading south. After a brief stop at the Oakabella homestead (reputedly the most haunted house in Australia) we continued on to Geraldton. We parked up at Moore Point for another snorkel (sadly no more sea lions) before heading into town for cake and coffee. We continued south onto the Brand highway, stopping at the famous 'leaning tree' (see photo) and turned off at Dongara onto the Indian Ocean Drive, taking us through the Beekeepers Nature...

Nov 5, 2006 - Jurien Bay

Jurien Bay, like many of the towns we have past in the last few days, is a coastal village based on fishing and to a lesser extent, tourism. Most of the caravan parks in these towns are predominantly made up of permanent residents, presumably as a result of the housing shortages experienced everywhere in WA at present. Many new estates are being established on the edge of town as a result. Jurien is a great little town with lovely beach plus islands about 5km off shore. The park we stay at is surprisingly cheap and also has a jumping...

Dec 7, 2005 - Cervantes - Pinnacles

The night was very cold and it's getting colder. Slept in all our cloths. Went to see the Pinnacles at sunset. It was like a graveyard, 1000s of them, as far as the eye can see. Waited for the sunset, but it did not happen again too overcast. Steve went out of the car to look at the Pinnacles without his shoes and Lenka ended up carrying him around on her back. Noc byla studena a je cim dal tim studenejsi. Spali jsme ve vsem obleceni. Jeli jsme se podivat na Pinnacles pri zapadu slunce. Bylo to jak na hrbitove, 1000 kam jen oko dohledlo....
