Day 40 – Home

Distance travelled: 459kmTime Taken: About 6 hours We arrived home mid afternoon after our longest drive in a few weeks. I’d become used to the 2-3 hour trips down the coast that it was a little harder to be in the car for that long! Being home was bittersweet; we were glad to be home, but when we were in …

Day 38-39 – Geraldton

Distance travelled: 155kmTime taken: 2 hoursPink lakes viewed: 1 We travelled the coast road to Geraldton which led us past the Pink Lake.

It’s a place we considered stopping last year on our trip to Exmouth, but we needed to get a new tyre in Carnarvon so pressed on. As the name suggests, the campsite is on the side of …

Day 28-30 – Carnarvon

We travelled from Coral Bay to Carnarvon, just a short two and a half hour trip south and arrived before midday. Carnarvon is an interesting town, built on the Gascoyne River which they call the upside-down river. Despite the blue on the Google maps picture below, there’s little water in the river most of the year. All the glimpses of …
