A Travellerspoint blog

On The Road South

Cooper asked if I was going to blog while on holidays…My Mum backed him up so here it is…

The day started with an abrupt stop barely out of the town boundary when a big kangaroo decided to step infront of my car, holiday almost ended there.

(This one is for size comparison, this is a tiny kangaroo)

I learnt that if the first overwidth is still making its way across the bridge with a bank of trucks waiting patiently, you have enough time to go through New Norcia (maybe a little above the speed limit) and get out the other side infront of the second escort…however the planned toilet stop had to be postponed until Bindoon.

I detoured into Serpentine Falls for a look where it was just me & another couple so basically had the place to myself but there was no way I was taking a dip.

Took a few little detours, stopped in a parking bay for lunch and ended up walking the wall at Harvey Dam.

I eventually made it to Collie where I’m spending the next couple of nights, took a walk around town before relaxing at the Caravan Park.

(Wouldn’t let me take this back to the Caravan Park when I decided I didn’t want to walk back up the hill)

Whose idea was it to go camping down south at this time of year???? It’s not even 7pm & I’m freezing!!!!!
