Live #43 – Australia trip from Exmouth to the Pinnacles

Australia has a lot to offer on it’s west coast. When we arrived in Exmouth, everyone was super excited about the Whale Sharks in the Ningaloo Reef of course. Sadly, it was also very busy and I didn’t get to do it. I would save it up for Donsol in the Philippines where it is much cheaper. There is still plenty to do in Exmouth, such as the nearby Cape Range National Park which has some nice, but not too exciting landscapes. Luckily, we had our Couchsurfing host with us and he showed us some secret caves which were pretty cool! We also got to spot a really rare thorny devil on the road. This little fella is so tiny that you might overlook him easily and a very interesting animal for sure.

Moving down south, we arrived in Monkey Mia, famous for the dolphin show there. Making it just in time, we witness the standard tourist feeding routine in which 3 dolphins came right to the beach. Not too excited about this, my goal was to see them in their natural habitat without baiting them with food. So I waited at the beach a bit further up for one hour until I could finally spot 2 fins in the water. I jumped right in and the same 3 dolphins actually passed me under water! Really great moment as this is happening very rarely, according to the staff.

I found an amazing camp spot later in the afternoon right underneath the Eagle Gorge Lookout in Kalbarri National Park. Technically it is probably not allowed to camp there, but I just found this super awesome spot with an amazing view and well protected from all sites underneath a small overhang and just couldn’t resit to spend the night here while the others returned to the campsite in town. Our last stop was the Pinnacles Desert just before arriving to Perth. Another great landscape to discover, looking especially impressive when the sun lights all the sand in bright yellow! Check everything out in moving pictures in my small clip here:
