Distance: 191 km
I set off this morning expecting to arrive at Kalbarri at about midday but it proved a much more interesting journey than I anticipated and I eventually reached the caravan park at 3.30pm.
Came across a partly restored convict settlement at Lynton – the Port Gregory Convict Hiring Station.
There was a connection to the Anna on whom “The King and I” was based (click on the photo for a bigger version).
Took a side trip to visit Port Gregory; a white beach protected by a reef and what appeared to be good fishing if a seven year old who kept reeling in whiting was anything to go by.
Nearby was Pink Lake and yes, it was pink – some algae that thrives in salt water lakes apparently (like Lake Tyrell).
As I neared Kalbarri there were numerous lookouts on top of the cliffs overlooking the Indian Ocean. I can’t remember which photo was taken from which lookout.
Finally in the caravan park noticed these two cars next to each other.
