Oct 20, 2013 - Premiers coups de pédales en terre Australe

de Bunbury, j ai rejoint Dunsborough en passant par Busselton en velo mais cela sous la pluie...quelques routes tranquilles, d autres pistes cyclables longeant l océan indien , attention les photos que tu dois avoir sur Google doivent être comme les cartes postales de l office de tourisme prises à une autre saison.. L eau n est pas de la même couleur en ce moment. Mince, j aurais du partir la veille ou le lendemain car aujourd'hui hui le soleil brille. Je croyais que la Pauline que j avais connue à northbridge et qui m avait dit venir de...

Oct 26, 2012 - Caves and Mazes around Yallingup

A short 5 minute drive to the Ngilgi Cave near Yallingup this morning. The cave is entered via a set of staircases and once down inside there are a number of different directions you can go. The cave has been a tourist attraction for over 100 years and now they really have it well sorted with LED light displays and board walks. You can pay more and go on more adventurous tours in other sections of the cave if you want. We all went through the Tunnel of Doom which was a tight squeeze for Mum and Dad. The cathedral was beautiful as were some...

Oct 25, 2012 - Lighthouses, arrows and sandcastles

Hard to get used to - cool mornings but lovely blue sky days that are warm. Top little bakery up the road from the caravan park was our first stop before heading out to the archery and mini-golf centre. We had a great time learning how to do archery and then doing the 9 target course. For the record - Dad, Keagan, Mum and Brenton (who actually had some great targets but then dropped the bottom lip on a couple!) We decided to then have a game of mini-golf as a family. Some laughs, some arguments but all in all a good morning. Out to Cape...

Sep 21, 2011 - 2 day work weeks, Sheep burping & Chocolate Heaven :)

What a day. Bit of a later start but we certainly made up for it! Before I get onto today I just wanted to add in something we forgot to mention yesterday which is really quite something: So many Australians feel that working 5days a week is just crazy! So far we have met multiple people who work 2/3 or 4 days a week only. One spouse works 2 days and another is on a pension(workplace injury) They have 4 kids! Young! It's crazy. Another couple Aged 40 & 38 works 2 days and 4 days. Really cannot comprehend how they get by with daily expenses!...

Sep 18, 2010 - Yallingup and Margaret River Region

Yallingup and Margaret River Region Left Bunbury for Yallingup 18 Sept which is on the coast just south of Busselton and Dunsborough – a very pretty spot with the caravan park right on the coast and lots of lovely walks around the coastline. Margaret River area is very pretty with lots of wineries, chocolate factories and the like. Most of the wineries are very lavish, set amongst lovely gardens spectacular buildings and restaurants. Lots and lots of money being made from wine in the region obviously.

Oct 22, 2009 - Day 3

Day 3 – down to Margaret River We loved our walk yesterday so after a sleep in and a hearty breakfast at Bunkers beach café we set off down Caves Road to the Injidup car park. From there we joined the Cape to Cape track (Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin) another sandy walk with a bit more sun today. Not so many flowers on this track but we did meet up with a small, alarmed lizard. Again some stunning views of the Indian Ocean and such a brilliant aqua under a sunny sky. After an hour or so we made our way down to the beach and spent the...

Oct 22, 2009 - Cape Clairault and Surrounds

Day 2 We didn’t realize our visit would coincide with the end of the wildflower season so we’ve become orchid hunters and our walks are constantly interrupted by photographing flowers. Today we did a circle walk from Torpedo Rocks car park at Yallingup, along a sandy track up and down the dunes down to Smiths Beach. We met no-one except a few stray surfers on the way back. We did surprise a couple of large red kangaroos on our way there, hunting amongst the green shoots here and there in the burnt area. The only other wildlife we...

Oct 20, 2009 - Bunker Bay

4 night visit to Bunker Bay in South West WA We drove down on the new Mandurah bypass highway and continued to bypass Bunbury and Bussleton. Probably not a particularly inspiring drive since we didn’t spot the ocean at all but at least it wasn’t the usual uninspiring drive that we usually do, down to Melbourne. It was exciting to be back in the south west again. Visits to Perth are becoming difficult to remember as over 25 years they begin to blur into each other. We remembered our last trip down with Laura and Matt, Ryan and Mum – that...

Jan 20, 2009 - Yallingup and Margaret River

Hi We are leaving Yallingup today and making our way to Pemberton. It has been a really good three days. Went to some great beaches and also visited the vinyards. The surfing at Yallingup was really good to see, the waves were very big. Went to the southern most point of west australia - Augusta- where the southern and Indian Oceans meet and also visited a Cave called Lake Cave which had some really good stalactites. They also told us to mind the spiders because they were extremely venomous, later they said they dont often leave the webs so...

Jan 19, 2009 - Yallingup

Hi Left Perth a couple of days ago. Stopped at a little town called Bunbury and stayed in a typical small town hotel. The Rose - vey cheap but really good to see how they live out here. Are now at Yallingup in a very posh small hotel. On the way we stopped at Busselton and walked along their jetty which at 2 Km is the longest in the southern hemisphere. While we were there they had 6 man sea outrigger races and we saw the marathon which took them an hour and was 10km long. The Hotel is realy nice set in its own grounds and vinyard with lake...

Feb 21, 2007 - Yallingup

The heat and strenuous activity is making my body pay for it. Headache. Oh the thrills of spending most of the afternoon in bed resting and getting lots of fluids. Now it's not like I didn't have anything to drink through the day, hell I'd downed two Gatorades and water AND juice. I'd also kept my salt levels up but my undoing was the Ngilgi Cave at Yallingup. The cave was discovered in 1899 by Edward Dawson and was turned into a tourist destination a year later. Now it has some pretty good history and definitely worth a look at $17 but you...
