When are you looking to go again and to where?
Friday the 19th October I will head south for 3 nights. I will be 60 over the weekend so plan to have a big campfire and many rums. Its the last chance for a fire as beyond October total fire bans come in. I will head for Belvedere in the Leschenault Peninsula Conservation Park, Ocean one side and an estuary the other. Good fishing both sides with plenty of crabs and prawns. It was once a hippy commune in the 1970`s. The best bit is the Rangers provide free firewood as they don't want the bush chopped down. 2007 TDV8 VSE

Looks like I beat the rush, Never seen anything advertising Mount Augustus, now its in the news promoting its virtues..

In the article, it also speaks of the Ningaloo Reef. I am a Scuba Diver and have dived all over the world in my younger days. By far the best and most pristine reefs I have enjoyed are the Murion Islands part of the Ningaloo reef system. On this trip I did not take my dive gear but did a bit of snorkelling whilst at Cape Range. As I have a $30 go pro clone on the Dash of the car at all times I took it for a swim to see how it went. This is filmed in 1 metre of water right off the beach..

Happy Birthday Wayne.

That's a bloody big rock!

It's funny you know, when we lived in Carnarvon 1971-72, we never thought of going to Mt Augustus (or anywhere else) - I don't think I'd even heard of it back then. These days we'd be all over it.

I worked as a tech here in Carnarvon (my Hillman in pic). We provided comms for NASA Carnarvon back to the USA and also tracked and controlled Intelsat satellites.

Re diving, is there a lot of sand over that coral? I haven't been diving since I left Norfolk Island in 1993 - we lived opposite the dive shop so was really easy to throw my gear onto their boat and go for a dive. Ron B. VK2OTC

Thanks for the Birthday wishes, 60 on the 21st Oct, Trafalgar Day. That short Vid was right on the shoreline of a sandy beach so yes sand on the coral, a little further out and deeper and it was just teeming with life. Nice pic of the Hillman at the Dish. 2007 TDV8 VSE

Amazing how technology has enabled videos like that to be done so cheaply. Twenty or so years back and you'd have needed a thousand dollar housing. Very Happy Ron B. VK2OTC

Back up into the tropics for another road trip, this time past Exmouth and up past Karratha to Cleaverville. 3 full days driving and 3 overnight stops, just pulled off the road onto quiet tracks. Spent 4 nights at Cleaverville camped on the dunes behind the ocean. Took time to explore the area's history and countryside. We then tried to get to our second planned stop, camping area on the Ashburton River close to Old Onslow. After checking the road conditions online we made the 4-hour trip south only to find the road closed due to flooding. Backtracked 60klms to find a place to wait for things to dry out. The old TD6 is running sweet and my traveling companion in a Ford Ranger can't believe the fuel economy I am getting.

Our home until the road is opened

No matter where you go you always get someone to park right next to you? Rolling with laughter

Just like the campsite I am on now in Devon just about 6-7mts between pitches? Big Cry

Yes, I agree but the car and van in the shot are the people we are traveling with. I did have words with a massive American-style bus rv the pulled in then ran their air-con and generator constantly. It seems in these remote parts a lot of travellers are fearful of being on their own at night, that's what caravan p[arks are for not to share my campfire. After that intrusion, anyone pulling up got heavy metal at full blast till they got the message and moved on. 2007 TDV8 VSE

Having to give up on getting to the Ashburton river, local shire won't give a time and fines are alarming for entering onto a closed road. $1000 a wheel inc spare so $8000. Been away and off grid for 2 weeks so time to return home, a 1400klm cruise.
Having spent 5 nights at this random rock outcrop on a flat plane that goes on forever I can honestly say its the best spot I have ever sat and watched the stars, Every night, horizon to horizon Milky Way with untold shooting stars and orbiting satellites. When I am back that way I will stop again.

Australia is on the green list But unfortunately, you have to quarantine for two weeks in a hotel and not leave the room for anything? I have been waiting to get there?
