Western Australia road trip along the coast

Highly recommended! I got myself a caravan from Lucky Rentals which was pretty cheap at about $50 per day. Since the gas has been also pretty cheap lately, I decided to do a car trip through Australia which I wanted to do for quite some time.

It was early fall in Australia (March), so the temperatures were still high during the day (about 30-35 degrees Celsius). In the Perth area the nights were somewhat cool at about 20 degrees, but up North the nighttime was exactly right to sleep in the caravan: about 23 to 25 degrees.

Beautiful scenery on the Indian Ocean coast

The Pink Lake about 500 km North of Perth – yes, it is pink


Drive North long the coast of Western Australia


One of the beaches at Exmouth, where I spent several days

The Turquoise Bay – one of the best beaches in Australia and pretty remote


The car I was traveling in


A lighthouse close to Exmouth – behind it is the closest point to Bali in Australia


Afternoon at Coral Beach about 150 km south of Exmouth


Coral Beach – would be hit by a Cyclone just a couple days later

On the way back I learned that there was a Cyclone coming from the North. So I drove south a couple days sooner and always stayed ahead of the Cyclone Olwyn. When it reached me in Northern Perth it had lessened in power to only a thunderstorm.

However, the Northern communities that I had visited just a few days earlier were badly hit. Some people said it was the worst Cyclone they had in decades.
