Today we drove up the motorway to Burns Beach, north of Hillarys Boat Harbour, for a night. It is a pretty spot, near where Rick and Sue are staying. Our van is a stone's throw from the beach. Tomorrow Rick and Sue will come with us south to Busselton, where we will base ourselves to explore the south west with them. They will get a cabin in the caravan park.
This week we did a bit more exploring around Perth, including Kings Park, Swan River, North west beaches and drove around some of the more expensive areas. We took a drive 100km east to historic York, the oldest inland town in Australia. Another day we explored the Perth Hills and Mundaring Weir, which supplies water by pipeline to Kalgooli.
Our car has been serviced, and Chris has polished it and painted the tyres, so it looks great again!
We received the shirts Big 4 sent us as promised as yet another reward, so Rick took some photos of us wearing them for them.
We are finding Perth a very easy city to drive around. It has great motorways, arterial roads, and ring roads. The parks and gardens are public
ammenities are excellent. There is very little evidence of graffitti or vandalism. The many new bike/walking tracks are well used, especially the ones beside the beaches.
