We have been staying at Augusta. Augusta is a town on the south-west coast of Western Australia, where the Blackwood River emerges into Flinders Bay. It is the nearest town to Cape Leeuwin, on the furthest southwest corner of the Australian continent. It is 317 Kms south of Perth.
Fishing – The fish and chip shop is really great!
Fallen – There was a stingray swimming off the foreshore at the caravan park. Chris decided to get a closer look and walked down a little concrete inlet leading to the water. Well the next thing he was doing a funny dance, trying with all his might not to slip into the water but landed on his bum in the waters edge. Wet jeans, shoes and socks. Now has a slightly swollen right ankle and a slight limp.
Cave – Mammoth Cave
Mammoth Cave is a large limestone cave 21 km south of the town of Margaret River in Western Australia, and about 300 km south of Perth. It lies within the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park and is surrounded by Karri and Marri forest. It has also had extinct animal fossils found in Mammoth Cave. It is a really beautiful cave and quite magical to see. The cool air and dark crevices give it an atmosphere of another world. Stunning. This is one of many along the coast, each having their own appeal. Here are some photos that Chris managed to take while hobbling along.
