Esperance - Bay of Isles
Esperance is a lovely place for a holiday. You need a car though, because there's plenty of long distance travel down there. The scenery is very different and very scenic. You'll never forget a trip way down under to Esperance :o)
My South West trip, 08-17 January 2003
"Hello friends, here's some about my trip..."
We left Wednesday morning at 7.00 am..Yawn (gaap!).
Then we were on our way to:
-Bunbury, to see the Dolpins (nope they were not there when we were there);
-Margaret River, to see the surfdudes riding the big waves (cool!) and to taste some local quality wine at a winery (yummie:)
-Cape Leeuwin (Augusta, at the lighthouse where the southern- and indian ocean meet)
-Gloucester Tree (61m. tall tree which I climbed on a ladder);
-Treetop Walk (Karri forrest, with trees up to 90 m., walk around the treetops *high!*);
-Denmark with it's nice beaches called 'Green pool';
-Albany with nice rugged coastline, seen 'The Gap' & 'Natural Bridge'
-Bluff Knoll, climbing this big hill was not easy for many (I was first on top:) but the view over the Stirling Ranges was beautiful!
-Wave Rock, the 15m. high rock shaped as a giant wave;
-Esperance, I stayed here for three days which flew by as I enjoyed it so much, I love this place! especially the Cape le Grand national park with beaches which are soooo white and turquiose blue waters!
Stayed for three nights;
-Kalgoorlie, we went to see the biggest mine (gold) in the world (can be seen from space!) called the 'Super Pit'. At night all of our group checked out some local night live. The 'Wild west saloon' was quite lively I must say.
I have put some photos in the traveloques of my Esperance site (Photos of my south west trip I-V) and Cape le Grand site (Photos of Nat.Park I&II).
