The Gascoyne and the Pilbara

Some more tourist photos from the Gascoyne and the Pilbara. I started off from Carnarvon and went to Quobba Station, then went back to Carnarvon and then north to Exmouth and the Ningaloo Reef.

Carnarvon One Mile Jetty


Carnarvon One Mile Jetty

The jetty is the longest in the North West of Western Australia and was constructed by Matthew Price in 1897. It was built to service ships that brought supplies and passengers from Perth and allowed the export of livestock and wool from the region.

Exmouth Dunes beach

The wind was onshore when I got to the Dunes Beach in the middle of the day. There were small waves and a few beginners were having fun on the small waves.

Black-footed Rock Wallaby


Black-footed Rock Wallaby (Petrogale lateralis)

There were quite a few of these wallabies on the cliff faces, perched precariously high above the water.

Yardie Gorge

The walk along the edge of Yardie Gorge was very nice. Lots of animals and birds and a very awesome view from on top of the cliffs.

Yardie Creek

This is the view of Yardie Creek from the gorge. Amazing.

Oyster Stacks

The snorkelling here was fantastic. Lots of coral, starfish, stingrays and a plethora of exotic tropical fishes. I need an underwater camera!

Paraburdoo


Paraburdoo

A big mine truck on exhibit at Paraburdoo. There is nothing up here. Just mine towns and rocks and trees. So desolate.
