When I spent 10 Days in Perth last year, the furthest north I got was a town called Yanchep. Here is a photograph of Yanchep Beach looking in a northerly direction… As much as I would have loved to have travelled much further north than Yanchep, which is only about an hour from Perth, I [...]

As regular readers will know, on Fridays I like to showcase a video from somewhere in Australia. I have to say, these are my favourite posts of the week, because I often get to see something or somewhere that I otherwise would not have seen.
