Two hours north of Geraldton in Western Australia is the spectacular Kalbarri National Park. Stretching from the coast about 50km inland the park encompasses a pretty amazing range of ecosystems from the inland reach that really made me feel as though I was back in Alice Springs with bush tomatos and low scrub the most noticable species (except for a small native pine which I’ll have to read up on).

So this weekend I am in Geraldton, Western Australia exploring the town for things of interest while work keeps me here for a while. Luckily there seems to be plenty on this weekend which means that I’ve had a busy day of coffee, washing, viewing a church, the Valley View Airshow, sunset at the beach and putting together a quick video from some canyons I did recently. Some photos to […]
This weekend I had some spare time to fill in Western Australia so I thought I would take a little drive and check out some of the amazing natural phenomena that abound the ‘Coral Coast’ as this area has been dubbed. With a massively long coastline with warm tropical waters flowing down from the northern Indian Ocean there is a massive variety of sea life including whales (in season), sea […]
I’ve mentioned this before, but one of the perks of my job is being able to stop in at interesting locations near my work sites. At the moment I am spending a little time based out of Geraldton in Western Australia, and instead of heading straight home from the office today I decided to turn off the main drag at the big brown sign to Ellendale Pool. Not having a […]

To get to this particular Long Way From took quite a few hours and a the permission of a number of station owners, so I wouldn’t suggest getting excited about going to a Long Way From. Anyway the drive was exciting! There were lots of gates through […]
One of Broome’s many amazing natural features and experiences is the Staircase to the Moon, where the full moon raises over the mudflats of Roebuck Bay at low tide. I was lucky enough to be in town for one of the lowest tides, with a rather large moon and can I just say, these photos just don’t do it justice. This spectacle is amazing. It is spectacular. See it!
So I am in Broome at the moment. Technically it is a work trip, but due to semi-predictable circumstances I haven’t been able to head out bush in the past week. As a consequence, I’ve been making the most of my time here buy going to some of the events that form part of the Broome Shinju Matsuri Festival which opened last night with a whole lot of speeches and […]
