    Feeling a tad envious. Our forthcoming journey has had to be delayed for an extra few weeks due to unexpected health stuff. Now hoping to leave mid/late June.

    Those Quokkas are cute little critters eh? We had one come out of the bush to visit our camp at Bettys Beach in SW WA, apparently they are the only (small) population outside of Rottnest Island.

    Bit of an update, so enjoyed a couple of nights and spent a day exploring Rottnest Island which was nice. Went for a bit of a snorkel around an old shipwreck which was awsome, saw heaps of fish and a ray. . .

    We camped at Yardie Creek for a week & the absolute best entertainment was watching & listening to the daily new arrivals of 4wd'ers waiting for the tide to go out far enough to allow crossing the creek to go south. Lots of bravado & anxiety. Only one route to follow but not always immediately obvious. No one drowned their car though. Suggest you let someone else go first!

    Will be very interested to hear/see what south of the creek is like. I don't want to cross salt water in our car, but may well come up that way from the south to camp on Ningaloo station.

    Did you find that hidey hole just out of Coral bay heading towards Exmouth , I believe the track ends up at Yardie creek but lots of soft sand though .

    So made it through to Coral Bay now pretty touristy here a few caravan parks jam packed with people, not overly impressed tbh. . . Was a really nice drive going south from Yadie Creek to Corral Bay. Yadie Creek was fine although pure salt water went through about an hour after low tide and was only ankle deep so just idled across in low 1st and just wet the tyres. Spent the day driving and checking out heaps of spots that heading down to the coast, ended up camping in the dunes about 20k north of Coral Bay. Awesome little spot got a pretty crazy storm last night with heaps of lightning, rain & wind.

    Wish I could get some more pics up bloody tapa was driving me mental the other day. Will have another go was saying 100% then upload failed - Grrr ! ! If anyone has got any tips that would be awesome otherwise ill keep trying when I get a chance. . .

    Anyway still going south headed for Franciour Peron NP which should be awesome. . .

    Glad to hear you’re both safe & travelling well Rossco!
    I find with bad reception on Tapatalk I can only upload ‘Small 479x640’ and maybe ‘Medium 767x1024’ at best upload option mate.
