When we were at Bunbury we booked a site at Cape Range National park. It is very difficult to get a spot and we booked one of the last available ones. Still it was a lovely possie. We stayed a night at Exmouth beforehand, filled up the water and got some groceries. Our door handle had kicked the bucket so I also managed to go to the caravan shoppe and get a new one……….. and put it in ……all by myself! God I’m clever. And I learned many years ago to read the instructions first.
As per Alan’s instructions (and many other people) we snorkelled Turquiose Bay the first day. The video does no justice. We saw turtles and octopi changing colour. The amount of life down there was amazing. You could pass over the same spot and see something different each time. The small colourful fish hiding in the coral were my favourites. We snorkelled Oyster Stacks the next day and went to Yardie creek and the Osprey campsite that was right next to us. The kids loved snorkelling and we all had such an incredible experience. Unforgettable and the kids actually admitted that they were having a great time, even though we were at a spot that had no phone reception, Wifi or electricity (but they don’t want to have to put up with these deprivations again of course). Another sight was the huge cuttlefish we saw changing colour AND skin texture. Amazing! Of course on that occasion i had forgotten to put the memory card in the camera! Bad luck for you, but I was there live and there is just no match for that.
We had an off grid pizza night while we were there. It was a bit of work but turned out well. While we were eating two little native mice came along and were very interactive. They had long tails with a little fuzzy bit at the end. So cute.
We went for a walk one third of the way up Mandu Mandu gorge. Great spot.
I got a little fishing in on the last morning and managed to keep myself entertained with a few fish. Put them all back.
We left for Karajini and stopped at Nanutarra Roadhouse for an over nighter after 4 hrs driving. This is the Ashburton River.
Rock formations on the way from Nanutarra to Tom Price.
Tom Price and Karajini next. Look them up so you know what they look like.
