Starting the trip in Perth, the southern part a Western Australia was one of the first parts of the country to ride through. Even after being the whole way around, it still is one of my most favourite ones. The Margaret River area, known for its wineries and good surfing is nice, but too touristy for my liking. The real natural beauty and the incredibleness of this country can be seen when touring the south coast of Western Australia. Yes I realise I’m talking like a tourist advertisement, sorry! But really it’s awesome down there, and the main thing is, there are hardly any people.
We usually camped at one of the free camp spots. Once we even had the entire spot, including toilet and brand new picnic table all to ourselves. The best of all was, it was right on the beach. You had to cook your own food, but the sunset view over our private beach was worth a couple of Michelin stars!
When traveling further we rode through some of the most amazing forests. With trees over 75 meters tall. I will never forget the sight in my rear view mirror: My dad on his bike was just a little dot between these endlessly tall trees. On other days we stayed closer to the sea and visited rock formations, lookouts with views of incredibly blue seas and walked along endless beaches. The life of a traveller is very hard you know!
The most unbelievable place we visited must have been Lucky Bay in Cape Legrand national park. A spot known by more tourists but so worth a visit. It doesn’t get more Australian then having a white beach with crystal clear blue water, surrounded by red rocks, and to top it off there are kangaroos on the beach! Yes on the beach! We even saw a mum with a little baby in her pouch, on the beach!
