Cervantes to Jurien Bay
From Dandaragan, we moved to our next base camp which was north of Jurien Bay and at Sandy Cape. We found a nice beachside spot to nestle in for a couple nights, which was great.
The following day we trekked down to The Pinnacles Desert Nambung for a look. Such a unique place which literally makes you feel like your on another planet. We grabbed some happy snaps and also ran into Anthony, a fellow traveller doing a lap of Oz. TIP: Rusty was happily napping back at our van, BUT if your driving through with dogs, we got told the ranger station in Cervantes has dog kennels you can use for free while you nip into the Pinnacles .
We then headed straight to the ‘lobster shack’ in Cervantes for lunch. Kurt got the half lobster and Amz opted for a simple fish and chips. A nice large restaurant, a bar and plenty of seating inside and outside. It was very busy with overseas tourists, when we were there.
On our way out of Cervantes we ducked into Lake Thetis to see some stromatolites!
Whilst camped at Sandy Cape, we also did some day trips up around Green Head, Milligan Island, into Jurien Bay and out to the Stockyard Gully Cave . We even headed to a local snorkeling spot and found some underwater pinnacles! A total of 5 nights we spent at Sandy Cape campground. We loved watching the sunsets over the ocean, chatting to the fellow campers and just relaxing ocean side again.
Next stop up to Geraldton!
