DAY 68 - Rest day with car getting serviced.(11423 km to 11429 km).NO PHOTOS Note for DAY 67 - 2 errors with Turtle comments ;These big Turtles are Green Sea Turtles and afterglow turtles on beach are exhausted females who during mating have to spend a lot of energy keeping themselves near top of water with the males pushing down on them. To add to this most mating pairs of turtles had other male turtles following patiently waiting their turn at female. The only way the females can get a rest is to beach themselves and as soon as they go back in water the males are back onto them. ... read more

We are thoroughly enjoying our time in Exmouth. We have had four days here, and both agree that it is somewhere we would happily holiday for a longer period of time. Exmouth, with Cape Range National Park and Ningaloo Reef on one side of the peninsula and Exmouth Gulf on the other, has so much to offer holiday makers. Navy Jetty, which is a working jetty owned by the Department of Defence, is rated as one of the top ten dive sites in the world. We are told that the marine life there is amazing, but it is a restricted site available only to certified dive tours. No snorkelling there for us. There are fishing charters providing a game fishing experience. For the more casual holiday makers like us, the are many sites to fish from ... read more

We had a couple of close calls today, and one small disaster. The first close call was out on Ningaloo Reef. We went out on a reef viewing and snorkelling tour in a glass bottom boat. It is a great way to experience the reef. A few minutes after starting snorkelling, I glanced over to my right to see a shark swimming past me. I took a second to panic and swam straight back to the boat. The crew reassured me that it was probably a reef shark and not to worry. They did appear a little surprised though. I only saw the back half; so really don’t know what it was. It wasn’t until the tour was almost over that the tour leader informed us that there were five metre tiger sharks on the reef. ... read more

Who would have thought the gentle pursuit of caravanning and camping could be so dangerous. First of all there is the risk of dying of boredom being the passenger while traveling from point A to point B or C or D etc. If you can survive that, then you must contend will everything Mother Nature throws at you. At Fitzroy Crossing, warnings had been posted about Singapore ants, tiny ants that would get into everything, so they recommended spraying around table and chair legs and even the wheels with ant spray to guard against them. At Turkey Creek/Warnum, we had to contend with bulls marauding through the van park. At Wycliffe’s Well there was a not to friendly donkey roaming around freely. In Karijini National Park, campers were warned about wild dingos, and told not to ... read more
