ExplorOz - David & Michelle

We left Yungarra Estate this morning not knowing quite how far we'd go. We took our time to pull off the highway to visit all the beaches and bays along the coastline down to Augusta (Cape Leuwin), stopping for lunch at Hamelin Bay and picking up a hiker who needed to get back to his accommodation. He turned out to be the retired senior curator of the National Museum in Canberra.

Augusta was beautiful. The waters were a pretty blue and beaches crisp and white. We had expected windy weather but it was definitely calm, which made for pleasant camping anyway. We stayed at the Flinders Bay caravan park (on Flinders Bay) which had the best camping sites of any caravan park we'd seen. We stoked up an open fire and let it roar through the night to keep us warm as we sipped hot coffee and planned our activites for the next few days.
