Day 12

Up early to get to the airport and allow enough time for a TV interview and reflection of the most amazing 11 days. We were greeted by the airport manager and head of airport security. Sad that the adventure is near the end and we have to say goodbye to the…

Day 11

Enjoyed breakfast at the Wholefood's Golf Cafe this morning with our lovely host Emma who was very welcoming. The venue is ideal especially for families and the meals were a good start to the day. My tip is try the real strawberry milkshake.

Day 10

Great sleep in the chalets last night and in the light of day we were able to appreciate the unusual courtyard with its donated large vintage mining equipment and transport as part of the charm.

Day 9

Woken by the resident rooster and the light coming in through the gaps of the spinifex, can't say I have ever started the day like that before. Brekkie is on, come and get it! Andrea (a jillaroo) took us down to meet some calves but they had gone wandering to…

Day 8

Met Andrew, the General Manager of The Esplanade for breakfast this morning. Again the food was really yummy and it was interesting talking to Andrew about local business and of course back home because Andrew spent a lot of time managing back in Batemans Bay.

Day 7

We start the day with a yummy breakfast at Dome, Port Hedland's newest cafe. Not only do they put on a great breakfast and coffee, but the restored building we were in was amazing.

Day 6

Check out this morning but first one more breakfast at Tata’s and it did not disappoint. We went straight to the Roebourne Cultural complex

Day 5

Time to spare this morning so we had an early morning walk along the beach. The sun had some bite in it even at 7am but the sea breeze helped to cool us down and it was beautiful looking out over the low tide as the sun reflected off the water.

Day 4

A bit of a sleep in and a call back home before we met Tanya at the ‘Empire6714’ café for breakfast. They offer a healthy and raw food experience and with a new menu we were in for a treat.

Day 3

Couldn't resist another chance to watch the beautiful sunrise so I’m up early again for a walk along the beach. It’s so quiet, it felt like my own piece of paradise until one of the resident seagulls reminded me I wasn't alone by swooping down a couple of times.

Day 2

An early start today to catch the sunrise and I am so glad we did. It was absolutely stunning sitting down on the beach watching the sky slowly change colour and the clouds above take on an orange/pink colour. So lucky to be able to watch the sun come over the…

Day 1

Just a little excited as we land in Karratha, although nervous about having our very own paparazzi. First thing we notice as we get off the plane is the very expected heat, with my skin it’s a miracle I didn’t get burnt just walking from the plane to the airport.
