perving - there is a nice beach there but otherwise ummmm not really as I recall there are just a few houses and a caravan park. there is the old grenough hamlet to poke around and take photos. There is those cool trees that grow out to the side like they are getting blown over. Ellindale pool is not far away - great camping spot with a beutiful shady area of the grenough river where it widens into a pool and has these cliffs as a backdrop. Anyway it is Australia day what do you want to do besides eat too much barby and drink too much beer

Australia Day is the Wednesday, so i am taking thursday & friday off to have a super long weekend.

But you right what more is their to do beside barbq's and drinking. I dont mind fishing as that way you can have some entertainment while your drinking.

You're not far from Stockyard Gully Caves. That's a good side trip, or do it on the way home.

Trip details here.

Your only 10 mins from Gero you can go and have a look at the Sydney Memorial
and even shoot up to Kalbarri if you have time.

plenty of beach fishing, plenty of river fishing - plenty of fishing - just do it in the morning as there is a slight breeze in the area after lunch. go sth of the mouth and there is more good fishing off the beach/rocks. when you get bored go into geraldton and see why greenough is ok. the whole area has plenty to see and do and on the way back (or on the way up) go via the coast road between cervantes and dongara and also the new coastal road into dongara (anything is better than the brand hwy). then if you get adventurous come home via cervantes, wedge and lancelin. either way enjoy the break rgds
Slow down and relax......

Maverick,

>just do it in the morning as there is a slight breeze in the area after lunch.

LOL

A 'slight breeze'. Not a real estate salesman are you? :-)

Thanks for the giggle before I toddle off to bed for the night. A slight breeze.....

those caves are only halfway to greenough arent they? If your going to make a scenic trip go thru lancelin and 4wd to cervantes, about 60k's. some gravel track, some beach, some sand track, takes about 3 hours and its not hard. Go to the servo or real estate agents in lancelin for a mud map. And yeah the coast road from cervantes to dongarableeps all over the NW coastal hiway. Dont know why its called the NWCH, you only see the coast at gero when you follow it to broome. It should be called the "NW Out of Sight of the Coast Hiway"
Go to the new museum in gero, lots of shipwreck stuff etc
