After seeing some of the seniors comments here, I decided to give WA a try. Just came back from an awesome trip from Western Australia, I must say it is trip I will never forget. Lovely place, with nice people, nice beaches, nice mountains and breath taking landscape of the nature. Thought I share the highlights here for all to view.

 

Went to:

 

Perth: Blue Boat Shed, Casino and Kmart Shopping { https://watravelblog...n-casino-perth/ }

 

Fremantle: Rottnest Island (Must Go), Kaili's fish market and harbour

 

Lancelin: Beautiful stop over at Verge 301, and of course Lancelin Sand Dune for sand boarding. { https://watravelblog...lin-sand-dunes/ }

 

Burnbury: Wildlife Park( great chance to have lots of contact with kangaroos )

 

Mandurah: For the wrong reason though, son got sick, sent him to the hospital there (waiting time is like 3 hours just to take a blood test)

 

Busselton: Busselton Jetty of course!

 

Dunsborouh: Whale Watching (not so nice though), Sugarloaf (Must Go), Cape Naturaliste lighthouse

 

Augusta: Cape Leeuwin and Hamelin Bay (for their wild stingrays which swim to the shore line) { https://watravelblog...win-lighthouse/ }

 

Margaret River: Chocolate factory, animal farm, winery and lots of drive around { https://watravelblog...er-animal-farm/ }

 

Denmark: Green Pool, Elephant Rocks and Valley of Giants

 

and Albany: Two People Bay, The Gap, Natural Bridge, Blowhole, wind farm and Emu point {https://watravelblog...o-do-in-albany/ }

 

 

 

 

I missed Esperance and Pinnacle as I really did not have the time to go so many places. Anyway, I created a website to pen down all my adventures, tips and advice. Still in the making so only 10 pages or so. More to come when I have more time to write down.  https://watravelblog.com/

I drove Great Ocean road before... still wondering what's so great about it!  Maybe I didn't drive far enough beyond Port Campbell.  [laugh]

The scenery is so so, there are many other better roads like Taiwan east coast, road to Milford Sound etc.

the Pacific Coast Highway aka California State Route 1 is more appealing, especially the section between San Luis Obispo and Monterey. do check out Big Sur if you plan to embark on a road trip there one day.
