Annual leave is a precious commodity; a mere 4 weeks a year of leave means you have to be careful with how you use it! Quick tip – if you take 3 days of annual leave over Easter (22, 23 and 24 of April), you end up with 10 days off work! Not bad!
Anyway, after having an absolute blast on our trip up north in August 2013, I have been itching to travel again. I’ve not been down to Esperance before, and thought it would be the perfect place to start a 23 day adventure. We plan on starting east of Esperance, and working our way around the coast, with the final destination being Dunsborough. We decided to leave early March, in the hope that the weather will be relatively warm and comfortable!
Where should we visit?
I have a rough plan of what to visit, but nothing is set in concrete just yet. I am hoping those who have been there before can shed some light on places that are well worth visiting. At the moment the rough idea is:
I’ve been to a few of these places, but some local (or insider) knowledge would be very much appreciated.
What’s the plan?
We intend on doing a lot of 4WDing, snorkeling and spearfishing, photography and just relaxing!
What vehicles are going?
If you recall on the last trip, we had a 3.0 Nissan Patrol, and my 4.2 Land Cruiser. Both vehicles will be going again.
Where can you camp?
We will be staying at DEC campsites, but need to book a few farm stays/caravan parks in along the way. If you know anywhere that is worth visiting, please leave a comment below.
I will do my best to tease you all with photos of crystal clear water and gorgeous white sand!
