Adventures in the Antipodes


Grand title. Hopefully I will find something of interest to back it up.

My wife and I have begun a holiday in WA (Western Australia). So, for the next few weeks my posts will be centred around Perth. We are planning to take a trip down south, perhaps taking in Esperance, Albany, Augusta and Margaret River.

We have been down there before but we hope to spend a bit more time and explore the area.

Then later on we are intending to head up north.

We have previously visited Geraldton, Denham and Monkey Mia to see the dolphins. But the intention is to go further up, possibly as far as Broome.

This will be the first of, we hope, many trips down under. Now we are retired we have the freedom to take off for as long as we like.

Originally I had thought we could do a complete circumnavigation of Australia. Prudence has taken over and the plan is to make several, more focused trips.

WA first, then perhaps Victoria based around Melbourne so we can take in the F1 Grand Prix or perhaps the tennis. After that, maybe we’ll head up  to Darwin or Cairns, not forgetting the Red Centre Uluru and Alice Springs.

Lots planned for the future as long as mind, body and bank account hold up.

We only arrived in Perth about ten hours ago. Jet-lag has forced me up after just over four hours sleep. Not much of a battery recharge having been up and mostly awake for the previous thirty hours, or so.

So, after a short scene setter, I’ll  sign off. Back soon with more words and, hopefully some interesting photos.
