Kermits Pool Karijini National Park

One of the most beautiful national parks in Western Australia is the Karijini National Park. However, Karijini National Park is quite far from all other tourist attractions. It’s more than 1’400 km from Perth and to Broome it is another 1’000 km to drive. But nevertheless, the journey is worthwhile. Sit back, relax and travel with us virtually. Continue reading

Climbing a giant tree near Pemberton is not for the faint-hearted

Climbing the giant trees in Pemberton

Standing in front of a giant tree in the forests around Pemberton is very impressive and you will suddenly feel very small. Eight years ago, we have been around Pemberton in the south-west of Australia the first time. It was an unforgettable experience to climb one of the giant trees. The view from the platform, which is 75 meters above the ground and above the tree top, is breathtaking. The ascent over the iron bars is not for the faint-hearted or people with fear of heights. Last time, I did climb the giant tree and made it to the platform. But will I be able to do the ascent this time? Should I take the risk again? Continue reading

Castle Rock Skywalk – Highlight at Porongurup National Park

Castle Rock Skywalk Porongurup National Park

We love hiking and exploring as many national parks as possible here in Australia. This morning, when waking up at the camp, we look outside to check the weather. It doesn’t look promising to go hiking. Strong wind and dense fog are greeting us today. We pull the blanket over our heads again and stay in bed a bit longer. At the end our desire for coffee is stronger and we finally get up. After breakfast the fog slowly disappears and then it starts to rain. Definitely not the weather we wished for today. Well, bad weather cannot stop us to go hiking and doing the Castle Rock Skywalk in the Porongurup National Park. Continue reading

The highest mountain in Australia’s Southwest is 1‘095 m high and is situated in the Stirling Range National Park. The Stirling Range stretches over a length of 65 km from east to west and many of the mountain peaks are accessible for hikers. We have visited many national parks in Australia but we haven’t heard a lot about the Stirling Range National Park, so we didn’t know what to expect. We have been surprised by the variety of walks and hikes up different mountain peaks in the Stirling Range National Park. Continue reading

You find more about the improvements and upgrades in this post. Continue reading

Nature in Australia – The good and the bad

Bush camping nature in Australia

The nature in Australia is unique in all its aspects. We admit, we love nature and we love camping. Especially on these perfect days with pleasant temperatures, a light breeze and sunshine. But sometimes we also hate it. On days with strong winds or thunderstorms, when it’s raining cats and dogs or annoying flies are crawling in our eyes, ears and noses it can be an absolute nightmare.

It was also a nice break from traveling and living in a camper. But don’t worry, we’ll continue our travels. In this post we share our experiences and tell you how to become a house sitter.
