We had a little bit of a sleep-in this morning before heading back towards Ningaloo National Park after breakfast. We only had 363 km’s to cover on day 10 to get down to Carnarvon, but we needed time to spend snorkelling at Coral Bay. There was more to see around Exmouth though, so we spent

On day 11 we had to backtrack just a little to go see the Quobba Blow Holes since we came through too late the day before to see them on the way. It’s about 70km’s or 50 minutes drive from the Wintersun Tourist Park back up to the blowholes, making it a two hour round
It was lovely to wake up just after sunrise and hear the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks right next to the . We wandered out to the beach just after sunrise, before most people were up, and the footpath along the shore was just so calming and relaxing. It was a great

If there is one thing you do in Australia besides Uluru/Ayers Rock, it’s the Horizontal Falls. Located at Talbot Bay in the Kimberley region of northern Western Australia, I don’t think there is anything quite like this anywhere else.

Day 5 was a welcome change. After 5 days of driving long distances, it was nice to spend the entire day just in Broome exploring the sights there. We got to watch the sunrise over Roebuck Bay looking back towards the West Australian coast.
