It’s been a while since I’ve taken part in a travel Pinspiration. I’m going to blame spending three months of travelling around Thailand, and hope you forgive me.
This weeks theme though was a real doozy, and to top it off, the bloggers behind this whole idea, Caz and Craig, used one of my shots for their post this week. Of all the great photos of Western Australia on Pinterest, they picked one of mine. Thanks guys!
I felt therefore that it would be remiss of me not to take part in this week’s Pinspiration. The theme is Western Australia, one of my favourite states in Australia. So much so that I wrote a post all about what is unmissable in Western Australia, followed up by another one, because one post just wasn’t enough! Suffice to say, if you go to Australia and miss out the west coast, then you are doing yourself an injustice.
Anyway, lets get on with this weeks travel Pinspiration post. The idea is to find my five favourite pictures from Pinterest on the subject of Western Australia, but, well, I happen to like sharing my own pictures on the blog, so that’s what we’ll be doing. Let’s start with:
The Bungle Bungles, or Purnululu National Park, are a series of incredible rock formations deep in the outback of Western Australia, accessible only by four wheel drive, or aircraft. See more photos and get ideas for a visit in my post on visiting the Bungle Bungles.
Way up at the north end of the Gibb River road in the Kimberley region of Western Australia are the spectacular four tiered Mitchell Falls. It’s another four wheel drive only spot, but worth the effort! I have a whole guide to the Gibb River Road, which takes you from one of of the Gibb River Road to the other, if you are interested in tackling this legendary adventure.
This art installation a few hours drive north of Kalgoorie-Boulder is by Antony Gormley, a British artist who is known for his fairly massive installations. This particular one, called Inside Australia, is no exception, spanning a ten square kilometre area on a salt lake. Find out more about how to get here, and why it’s worth the visit, in my post on visiting Inside Australia.
Cape le Grand national park, at the bottom corner of Western Australia, is a mesmerizingly beautiful part of the world. The beaches and water are just world class, and the hiking isn’t half bad either!
And finally for today, to provide balance with the Wave Rock, which is the first shot on the post, a shot of a real life wave at the blowhole near Geraldton. Parts of the WA coastline are very wild and rough, and waves crashing on the shoreline make for a spectacular sight!
