We next set up camp in Kalbarri, a quiet seaside holiday destination surrounded by spectacular national park and prolific wildflowers. It is the kind of place with heaps of fish and chips shops for the tourists, but no fishmongers because the locals all catch their own. We walked along the cliff hugging coastline as well as explored river gorges which were further inland.

Away from the coast the midday heat was suffocating. The type of heat where your breath becomes shallow and each inhale felt like a small sip of oxygen. Basically, during the day we were in an outdoor never-ending Bikram yoga class! So, it was not a surprise when later that night a fellow camper told us that the soles of her shoes had melted as she hiked through the gorge that day.

We loved the aptly named Natures Window…

and the stunning natural wildflowers on the drive back to town (Dad, these shots are for you!)…

Fauna spotted: Wise old owls sitting just outside our tent!

After a few days in Kalbarri I ducked off to Sydney and Boaz spent the rest of the week driving down to Perth, passing the picture postcard Pinnacles on his way.


About postcard from the road

When saying goodbye, a friend left me with the following words of advice... "postcards dont go out of fashion". Share our adventures from the road on our fantastical year-long adventure.

    My response to the photos throughout your travels is emotional. In some photos I hear the silence, or the sound of waves splashing softly as they touch the shore or the cliff walls, or the sound of birds. Through your vivid descriptions Deb I feel the heat, see the colours. Some of the views are exhilirating. You paint the picture with beautiful word and photo brushes with both broad sweeps and attention to detail. In other words I love your postcards. xo
