Wheatbelt Road Trip, Western Australia

Endless roads lined by salmon gum trees, no one else in sight, driving on the red dirt tracks across flat open country, completley stripped of bush for agriculture.

Saline lakes reflect the sky, the cost of stripping the land.

The skies are endless.....

Wet & sunny, first rain for ages makes for a beautiful rainbow the morning we arrive.

Started off a wonderful road trip across the Wheatbelt, here in Perth WA, with a few days at a friends shack and land in Toojay. So wet saw double rainbows, over earth which is surrounded by rose quartz crystal rocks.Naturally brings out the hippie in me.

The moonlit bath brings back memories of star filled, milky way nights, this is the way to have a bath at night!

Old treehouse and homemade swing.

Sunset at Shelley Beach

The light in Perth is just incredible, when the sun sets the sky moves through layers of colour, and you think it cant get better than this, every night stunning visuals from the reflection on the water. I love coming here in the evening, to cook our dinner and watch the greatest show on earth.

Heavenly Heathcote Point, Applecross,Perth, WA

Sunset views

Ship Themed play area

Memorial to actor Heath Ledger, he had a special connection to this place.

This is one of my favourite local places to visit. Its only down the road for us to visit the Swan River with super views of Wayland Bay and Melville Water, great cafe and ship shaped play area. Its like a mini village, with a clock tower and art gallery, in what used to be a hospital for the mentally ill, right up to 1994. The land was originally part of the Aboriginal tribal lands where the Beeliar people lived and hunted before 1827, when Captain James Stirling set up a garden to test the soil but favoured Perth for the capital city. He named the site after Midshipman G.C Heathcote - said to be the first Europen to set foot there.
