Margaret River, Yallingup and around

We based ourselves in Yallingup, a beachside town that explodes during the holidays that is a short distance from Margaret River. On arrival, the explosion had already started and we were lucky enough to find a spot in the crowded campsite and happily set about setting up our trailer. You probably already know that Margaret River is a world renown wine region. What you might not know is that it also has other amazing fresh produce. We spent some lovely days wine tasting, cheese tasting, chocolate tasting, olive oil tasting and fresh organic bread tasting. Here is a snapshot of our tasty time there…

After a few lovely days we had to leave our caravan park as it had already been booked months earlier by holidaying families with 100s kids in tow. A bit concerned that our laissez-faire-no-booking-fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants travel method would not hold up during the holiday rush, we were not sure where to next. We decided that it was time to continue along the south coast and on the road between Margaret River and Pemberton found a beautiful quiet riverside spot for the night.

Somewhere that we would have not found if the events had unravelled differently. I realised that as much as I had enjoyed the hustle and bustle (and soy lattes!) of Perth and Margaret River I had missed being in nature. Such is the lows and highs of travel (and life)… and as I am constantly learning and relearning it usually all works out for the best in the end!


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.

    Thank you for sharing your pleasure. What a treat for us.
    You have learnt so much about the outside world and nature and environment and your inside world, about each other, about your resilience, your tolerance, what turns you on, what turns you off etc., etc. You have (ONLY figuratively)broadened, been enriched.
    Love, Ann xxoo

    hi guys, it is so cool to read about your travels, especially as sometimes we have just been, or in this case are still yet to visit. We are currently in Albany till the 2nd, and are soon to back track to Pemberton, the Karri trees and the Margaret River region. Like you we have realised how much we love the remoteness of some of our destinations over the hustle and bustle of big cities, and even though we travel with kids, we had forgotten what it was like to share our space with so many more!!! I guess it reminds us how lucky and spoilt we were to have all those incredible beaches all to ourselves for the past 4 and a bit months. Mazels to you both for your upsoming wedding. Do you continue travelling after the wedding??? Travel safe, perhaps one day we should catch up for a beer/wine back in Melb to share stories and adventures!!!!. From one happy camper to the next, Linda xxx
