18/7/14 - Well that was our last night in WA and it was a peaceful one, we enjoyed looking at the stars before retiring to bed.

Duncan Road

17/7/14 - Now we should have paid attention to the name of the rest area we stayed at last night. The words, cliff and lookout should have set off some sort of warning in our heads. But it was getting late, dark and we needed to stop so it didn't jell. The moment we stepped … Continue reading Duncan Road

Windjana Gorge

We did have a quick look in the info bay and saw no signs of relevance talking about track closures. So off we set, it's 7km … Continue reading Windjana Gorge
