Into Western Australia’s Outback and back

Tuesday, 19th April – Sunday, 24th April 2011

After a good night’s sleep and ready to travel further but Dundas Rocks, Bromus Dam Norseman’s Beacan Hill Lookout weren’t very interesting…

and so we quickly headed off to Kalgoorlie where we stayed with Melissa’s parents and had our own comfy „home“.
Our days were filled with the typical things, repairing the car (radiator), laundry, blog and communication as well as nice dinners and conversations with our host(s).

Kalgoorlie is a typical mining town with interesting mining sites, for example Melissa’s workplace

or the superpit. The dimensions of this huge hole are hard to grasp but the sound needed about 2 seconds until it reached us 500 m higher.

On our last day Melissa introduced us to shooting, not easy to keep a steady hand but interesting enough quite fun. If you don’t shoot innocent skippies that is!!

After a great coffee and breakfast we said Goodbye and drove 390 km South the Wave Rock:


Wave Rock:

Close by the Hippo Yawn – can you see it?

As well as the Mulka cave:

324 km further South we arrived in Jerramungup, had a crappy night due to annoying French backpackers,


got up early and drove 180 km back to the coast to Albany.

(Just a map of half the way since Google maps can’t find the gravel road we took when we went to Hyden…)
