Somewhere on the south coast

Somewhere between Bremer Bay and Cape Arid on the beautiful south coast of WA was our destination. This was leaving our options open given it is about a 300km stretch of coast.  Our criterion was simple: a place to launch the tinny, a camp site where you are able to see the water and no…

Nanga Mill and Capt. Fawcett
