Lake Jasper is rather unique and apparently attracts ski boats, windsurfers and fishermen (although we couldn't imagine how they'd get the boats in these tracks). Conditions weren't ideal for us to windsurf and we couldn't be bothered fishing so we moved on again. (We are trying to see everything and still make it back to Sydney by late February).

It only took about an hour to arrive in Pemberton where we stocked up with food supplies and sent mail. It seems there is lots to do here. One of the best attractions are the climbing trees, 60-75m trees that were used as fire lookouts. We went to the Glouchester Tree which is a 63m karri gum with 350 metal rungs to climb to the treetop platform. David scrambled up there like a monkey and I shook and sweat and made it up about 12m before backing back down. At least David took the camera and video up with him so I can see what I missed

Leaving here we drove about 50km south to Windy Harbour, in the D'Entrecasteau National Park and camped at the only 2WD accessible beach in this national park. In fact, there are only 3 places where 2WD vehicles can access the southern coast between Augusta and Albany.
