Perth

By mid May we reached our destination, Perth! Very pleased to have accomplished such a journey – from one end of Australia to the other! Here are some highlights of our time in Perth when we first arrived.

South West Region

We drove round the South West corner of WA, through Yallingup and Busselton, towards the state capital of Perth!

Rainbow Coast

We drove up the south coast of WA, known as the Rainbow Coast (Albany, Denmark & Walpole), stopping at some well known sights!

Esperance

At the end of April 2014, we reached Esperance, after our long journey across the Eyre Highway, and took the opportunity to relax for the day at Cape le Grand National Park

Nullarbor Plain

On the third day of our journey across the Nullarbor Plain, we crossed the border into Western Australia, stopping in Eucla and conquering the ’90 Mile Straight’ (Australia’s longest straight road) before continuing to Norseman.

Nullarbor Plain

Ceduna marked the start of our 1200 km trip across the Eyre Highway from SA to WA via the Nullarbor Plain – the world’s largest limestone landscape, which was once a part of the ocean floor!
