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
It took us a long time until one of our big dreams came true. Three road trips around Australia, 90’000 kilometers and 732 days later and we finally found kangaroos at the beach. Our expectations are high as we heard about the kangaroos at Lucky Beach from many people. We can’t wait to get to Cape Le Grand National Park and especially Lucky Bay. Continue reading
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
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

There is so much to see on a Red Center Road Trip. All about the highlights in this post.
Australia’s nature in the Red Center is breathtaking. The wide open space, the starry sky and the nature is why we and many others visit the Red Center in Australia. Lately, we were often asked by other travelers what we would do if we had 2 weeks to explore Central Australia. So we thought it is time to put together a 2 week itinerary from Alice Springs. If we only had two weeks for a Red Center road trip starting from Alice Springs, that’s what we would do. Continue reading
