Quagi Beach

At Quagi Beach, off the South Coast Highway west of Esperance, there is a Shire campground. It seemed dusty and busy and didn’t hold a lot of appeal for us.  Being outside the National Park, campers can bring dogs and so makes it an attractive campsite for some.  As well as about 20 dusty sites…

Sea life on the south coast

Launching from the beach was easy as Fanny Cove is shallow and sheltered and the sand at the water’s edge is hard.  The squid were huge and everywhere – and great fun to catch. We discovered that the squid seem to travel in pairs.  When we caught one, there always seemed to be another following…

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…

Back on the west coast

A few hours north of Perth there are some great stretches of coast to camp on. It can be pretty windy, but if you have the right set up, you can hunker down and protect yourself from the wind. We have a few favourite spots along what is aptly known as the ‘Turquoise Coast’ and…

Sandy Cape

Despite windy weather and the pre-Easter campers, we managed to secure a great camp spot by the beach, away from the main recreational camping area. It’s a sandy, boggy 4wd track to get there which fortunately keeps out the day-trippers, SUVs and most tourists. We spent much of our four-day weekend getting to know the…

Walpole & the Frankland River

We had a very relaxing weekend away at Walpole, on the south coast of WA. We stayed at Rest Point Caravan Park as we had The Dog with us and so the National Parks were a no-go this weekend – and there are plenty of National Parks around Walpole. Our grand plans of smashing our…

Preston Beach to White Hills

On a lazy day around home with some warm summer weather, we decided to head to the beach.  Preston Beach isn’t far from our place so we headed down the highway and made our way to the coast. It was a glorious sunny day. Lots of 4WD’s on the beach with people fishing and swimming. …
