Potters Gorge has had a bit of a bush makeover (if there is such a thing) since the last time we were there. It has been upgraded to have nice large campsites, paths, shelters, BBQs and a mountain bike pump track.
The name Potters Gorge is a little misleading as there is no gorge in the area. The campground is actually situated along the banks of Wellington Dam. Read More »
To tell you the truth I was a little nervous about doing the Holland Track. I didn’t really know what to expect. I just knew we would be in a remote part of Western Australia 4wding for 3 days. Thoughts were running through my head like what if the kids get hurt or sick? What if we breakdown and can’t get help? I mean the thought of spending days on end in a car with small children is enough to send anyone into a panic attack. What I didn’t expect was to be intrigued by the pioneer John Holland and his life.

A blank page in the diary for the weekend was staring at me! Do we stay home and get some chores done or go camping? Before you know it we were getting ready to spend a night in the bush.

My partner Dixie fitted a snorkel to our 100 series Landcruiser. I must admit I was a little nervous when I could hear drilling coming from outside. Then my two year old ran inside and said “look what Daddy is doing, he is putting holes in the car”. Shh don’t tell but I was thinking to myself maybe a professional should be doing this. Turns out I had nothing to worry about as he did a great job.
Anyway I will let Dixie explain the process of fitting the snorkel.Read More »
The more I camp the more I like to find a secluded area to call home for a few days. A place where no one visits except for the native animals. All you can hear is the sound of nature and take in the aromas of the Australia bush.

Cruising up the coast, our 4wd is loaded to the brim with camping supplies.

Don’t you love it when you explore a new area and you have no expectations and therefore you don’t get disappointed.
Dixie loves taking every 4wd track he spots and we often end up on a great adventure.
Whilst we were in Denmark, WA we headed down the South Coast Highway, saw a sign to Boat Harbour and figured it was worth checking out. Heading down the gravel road we spotted a track so we decided to head down it and found ourselves in Quarram Nature Reserve.

Albany in Western Australia is filled with stunning beaches and so much of the coast line has crystal clear water, rocks on the beach and large hills going down to the water.
Two Peoples Bay Nature Reserve
The nature reserve is located 35 kilometers east of Albany (450km south of Perth) and there are so many different beaches to explore and lots of camp grounds located on the beach.
Little beach has the brightest turquoise waters and the whitest sand I have ever seen. Looking at the waves the water is transparent you can see straight through the wave.Read More »
