First stop south of Perth was Bunbury. As always we checked out the lighthouse at Casuarina Point. It was built-in 1971. The original lighthouse site is now a lookout.
Dinner at “Backbeach” was a nice night out with a bonus of a sunset.
We had a cow theme going the next day. On a drive to Harvey Cheese through Brunswick we came across some interesting cow art.
Also found a factory I used to own when I was younger:)
A couple of breweries were next on the agenda. A female one & then a male version.
On the way around we found a most wonderful place. Gnomesville. There a thousands of Gnomes in the middle of nowhere. They are left there by locals & tourists.
Last few days we have been at Busselton. The jetty is a must do. It is 1.5km long. We walked out & caught the train back in. Twas a bit windy & chilly. The photo of the old jetty is known as a Skeleton Jetty. It had rails on top & the train travelled on it to build the jetty proper. Scary!
It is Geographe Bay Race Week so there are heaps of yachts racing on the bay. Good weather for it, it was blowing 20 knots all day.
Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse is 20km south of Busselton. It was built-in 1903. The bird is a male Splendid Fairy Wren.
Ngilgi Caves is just around the corner. Long way down but worth it. Someone piked out when it got to narrow.
Caves House is just around the corner. It was built-in 1931 after the original house burnt down. Wonderful old house.
Another brewery to finish with.
We are off to Margaret River tomorrow to concentrate on the vino.
