Jun 17, 2010 - en terug naar Pemberton...

De pillen blijken geen paardenmiddel noch wonderspul te zijn, de kuit is niet veel beter. De bus is nu eenmaal geboekt en rusten kan evengoed in Pemberton, niet waar? De YHA Pemberton is trouwens veel aangenamer dan de Wander Inn hier in Bunburry. Check out om 1000 en dan terug met pak en zak naar de bushalte. De bus is zoals steeds stipt op tijd en om 1200 zijn we op weg naar Pemberton we houden net zoals tijdens de heenreis halt in Manjimup en bereiken om 0240, zoals gepland, Pemberton. Het bed in Pemberton had ik alvast e-mailsgewijs...

Jun 11, 2010 - rust...

Ik probeer vandaag effectief wat te rusten en ga niet verder dan de laundry voor een waske (400m), het Visitor Centre voor internet (150m), de supermarkt voor meer vers voedsel (30m) en de zetel euh voor de tv en om te lezen of te niksen (1,5m). Het hostel is volgeboekt voor het weekend, ik moet bijgevolg op zoek naar een andere slaapplaats voor morgen. Ik besluit om te verhuizen naar een ietwat grotere “stad” kwestie van ineens ook een deftige regenjas, warmere slaapzak en wat andere spulletjes in te doen. De bus naar Bunbury vertrekt...

Jun 10, 2010 - Pemberton

Geraldine en Steve zijn ook vandaag al vroeg on Track, ze zijn nu eenmaal niet meer van de jongste en Steve’s knie helpt ook al niet echt mee. Indien ze voor duisternis de 21,7km naar Pemberton willen overbruggen moeten ze nu eenmaal vroeg op pad. De andere wandeldames vertrekken na uitgebreid ontbijt, ikzelf doe ook langzaam aan en ben om 0800 on Track. Zoals gewoonlijk haal ik Geraldine en Steve na een klein uurtje in, het is niet veel later dat ik voor het eerst een probleem gewaar wordt aan m’n linkerkuit. Deze sectie is niet overdreven...

May 7, 2010 - Days 28 - 29 UPDATE NOTES

Hi All, Back on the road again and to Esperance for 4 nights. A coastal town mainly servicing farming, tourists and a port where wheat is shipped overseas. The wheat farms were set up and running by the Yanks as they had the ability to make the soil yield farmable quantities of wheat. The farms are huge as is the equipment used on them. The town is quite attractive but its main feature is a national park - Cape La Grande about 60kms away where the colours of the water and rocks are out of this world. Luckily we were there on a sunny day....

Round we go 2010

Nov 6, 2009 - Day 108 – Pemberton – Rain …… finally

First up this morning we headed into the National Park, D’Entrecasteaux National park to be precise. Now that is such a traditional Aussie name isn’t it? We went looking for the Yeagerup dunes, a group of massive sand dunes that are slowly moving inland. When we got there it turned out they had moved too far away from us to walk to them. Trying to drive, ironically the track was made up of so much soft sand we decided better of it. There is some irony there somewhere. For plan B we drove back into Pemberton and back out into another part of...

Nov 5, 2009 - Day 107 – Cowarmarup to Pemberton – Finally heading East

We could happily spend another week or more here. No real desire to move on, given the balance of kids and adult attractions including some great wineries (and more average ones than there used to be) and every conceivable indulgence. A couple of times we have driven past a land sale just south of Margaret river township with a biog signs stating land from $150,000…….tempting. Ev could study viticulture in Kindergarten and we would have our own wine maker in a couple of years Partly because we were reluctant to leave and partly because the...

Oct 21, 2009 - Pemberton

We headed south again and at the little town of Karridale we turned east and began our long journey back to New South Wales. Our next stop was the attractive little town of Pemberton. Surrounded by three national parks, Pemberton is probably most well known for its magnificent Karri forests and these forests dominate the countryside all around the town. The timber industry is very important here also wineries, fishing and tourism. We decided to take a trip on the Pemberton tram which travels through the Karri forest, over trestle bridges,...

Jan 22, 2009 - Pemberton and Walpole

Hi Have moved from Yallingup down to two very small towns, Walpole and Pemberton. They are in the middle of the Karri Forest. Which seems to be as big as wales. Went to a Tree top Walk that takes you up into the canopy for 140 feet. Also saw a really old forest with ancient 'Tingle Trees' thet were amazing you could stand inside some of them. We visited some lovely caves rather like cheddar really interesting Roy is stillwaiting to see a Kangaroo and Emu he has only seem two dead ones so far on the siude of the road. We have seen masses of...

Dec 18, 2008 - The tram that puts you to sleep

Woke a bit later today 6.30am.....again everyone else slept in...... Unfortunately, I was not well so Sean and kids spent morning on computer (Sean) feeding (Sara)and strangling (Miranda) the animals and riding the Quad bike(Liam). When I awoke, we went to Pemberton to do some sightseeing!!! We drove around the Warren River National Park (“How boring,” Liam keeps exclaiming) He could see no wonder in the magnificent Karri Trees. Wait till we hit the Nullabor he will be wishing for trees or a shrub!!! We then had lunch at Pemberton, Jan’s...
