Cape Leeuwin photo

Cape Leeuwin

Cape Leeuwin was only a short drive from Margaret River and thought it would be interesting to see. Cape Leeuwin sits on the very most South Western mainland point of Australia. It is here at Cape Leeuwin that the Indian and Southern Oceans meet, I had previously imagined seeing some sort of tidal line 😉 […]

Fremantle Prison, Perth, Australia

Fremantle is possibly the nicest city on the west coast of Australia. It’s at the mouth of the Swan River, which is about 10 miles southwest from Perth. Established as part of the Swan River Colony in 1829 by British settlers and named after Admiral Sir Charles Howe Fremantle. Captain of the Royal Navy ship […]

Cairns, Scuba Diving photo

Cairns, Scuba Diving

Secondly to Sydney this has to be one of the best places to have fun in Australia. It was so good I actually went there twice in the space of a year. Cairns is where I completed my PADI Advanced Open water dive course. I went with Downunder Dive on their Atlantic Clipper for a […]

Uluru, Ayre’s Rock, Australia

I suppose my travel blog would never be complete without a photo of Ayer’s Rock or Uluru as it is now known. (It recently took back its Aboriginal name). I didn’t want to start this off with another typical photo of Ayres Rock, so thought a view from the top over looking Yulara would be […]

Circular Pool, Karijini National Park

Well this was one of my favorite parts of Australia. You really are out in the middle of nowhere when your visiting Karijini National Park. This is where I reverted to being a child again and had a little strop! I just soo wanted to do everything and climb down all the dangerous places and […]

Kangaroo Island & Flinders Chase National Park

The Sunday Telegraph said Kangaroo Island is “one of earth’s last unspoilt refuges and I agree. Kangaroo Island is in South Australia and is seven times the size of Singapore! The wildlife here is amazing, the Koalas are everywhere in the trees and of course the Fur Seals are incredible. Of course there are also […]

Diving HMAS Swan, Dunsborough photo

Diving HMAS Swan, Dunsborough

This had to be the best dive site I have ever been to. This was me taking a photo during a compression stop above the HMAS Swan. Which is the most expensive Australian warship ever costing $22 million. She was commissioned on the 20th of January 1970 and served the Australian Navy for 26 years […]

Hamelin Pool, Stromatolites photo

Hamelin Pool, Stromatolites

Hamelin Pool Marine Nature Reserve is one of only two places in the world with stromatolites, the others are at Glacier National Park in Montana USA. I think these ones near Shark Bay are the most interesting as NASA were there just before us undertaking a field trip to examine the stromatolites. They were discovered […]

Fraser Island, Lake Mc Kenzie photo

Fraser Island, Lake Mc Kenzie

This is Lake Mc Kenzie and was defiantly the best part of Fraser Island to me. It had crystal clear blue water and white silicon sand, it has an area of over 150 hectares and is about 5m deep. It is sat on a gigantic sand dune. The sand is actually silicon which makes this […]
