[01/07/2017] This is my second Video Live Update from Australia. The small clip starts with footage from the infamous Wolfe Creek Crater and ends at the Karijini National Park in Western Australia. It also includes my all-time favorite free camp site of Australia and a true hidden gem, something worth putting on your ToDo list if you are in the area!
After the first weeks in Darwin and the NT, it was finally time to head out west! Everyone told me that this is the place to be and driving into Western Australia, our first stop was the infamous Wolfe Creek Crater. They filmed two Australian Horror movies with the same name based on real events. While this is true, those true events actually happened in a different location in Southern Australia. It was still fun to watch the movie while we camped on the side of the 150km long dirt road that leads to the second biggest meteor crater in the world. Was it worth it? Well, it is hard to say and a long drive just to see the crater. We had a lot of fun though and I am glad we did it.
We then spent the following night in one of my all time favorite free camp sites of Australia, the Boab Quarry. This place was just unbelievable and I have no idea why this is not a major tourist spot. Certainly one of the nicest landscapes I have come across, including great little sharp rocks to climb up and even a crystal clear pool to swim in! We continued to Tunnel Creek & Windjana Gorge, both of which where really nice as well. After arriving in Broome, I was on my own again since the rest of my group drove back to Darwin. I continued hitchhiking towards the west and eventually joined another group to explore the Karijini Natiional Park together. The spider walk there was certainly one of the coolest hikes we have done!
