Visit Geikie Gorge in Western Australia

Location: , 3 min read
Choosing amongst your favorite spots during your travels is like choosing between your kids. Every spot moved or didn’t move you in a certain way and is, therefore, special in their own wonderful way. Geikie Gorge in Western Australia was definitely one of those places and is unlike any of the other spots down the Great Northern Highway. Where can you find this gorge? It is located in the northern tip of Australia. Right in the middle of the Kimberleys, where the Fitzroy river passes a little town called Fitzroy Crossing -go figure, right?-. In between the two big northern cities of Western Australia, Kununurra and Broome, on the paved highway that connects them. Unlike many of the national parks in northern Australia, you don’t need a four-wheel drive for this attraction. If you’re traveling around Australia in a van or a normal car, you can easily see this gorge as well! Of course is also reachable from the famous Great Gibb River Road, one of Australia’s most legendary four-wheel-drive roads.

The Best Beaches of The Australian Westcoast

Location: , 8 min read
Most Australians have not visited the West Coast of their own country, so why should you? With only 11% percent of the Australian population living on this side of the country, it is remote and sometimes difficult to get to. But remote also means well-preserved, hardly polluted and abundant with wildlife. And the best part about it? The beaches! Next to having a couple of the most amazing beaches I have so far seen in the world, you will find that these beaches are less crowded than most east coast beaches and if you’re lucky, you might even find an empty one. The West Coast has another unique feature and that is its sunsets. With the way that the world rotates the North and West Coast get to see the sun drop behind the ocean every single night, usually accompanied by a beautiful array of colors. Quite a sight to see. So arm yourself with a vehicle and some great travel mates and start visiting a few of the world’s most beautiful beaches! Below you will find my personal list on the best beaches of the Australian Westcoast in ascending order of jaw-droppingness.

The Magical Land Of Karijini National Park (+ A Four Day Itinerary)

Location: , 7 min read
Happy New Year to you all! Before it gets colder back in Europe, here I am to deport you back to summer and the magical land of Karijini National Park. After traveling through Australia for more than half a year, many Australians ask me what my favorite place in the country is. Always a difficult question to answer because so many spots have stolen my heart, Exmouth and its amazing beaches, the north of the country and its magnificent gorges and animals (crocodiles, hello!), the warmness and laid-back attitude of the Australians or the long scenic rides that keep changing every 100 km. Getting past the beauty of Karijini national park, however, has not happened yet. Let’s say it might even have become my new Flores. The east of Australia might be the most visited side of the country, but the side that will leave you dreaming for years to come is the west.

Update From The Wild West

Location: , 3 min read
Time for an update of my travel through Western Australia, the largest state in the country. Since I’ve travelled down from Darwin to Perth, I’ve driven between 4500 and 5000 km, which is about the same as driving from Brussels to Iran! I’ve seen the ocean and finally swam in it (in the Northern Territory this is not possible), I spotted Southern Right whales and Humpback whales in the wild, I climbed a mountain, celebrated my birthday in one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been, tasted world class wines, I can’t even count the amount of times that I’ve seen the landscape change, I’ve traveled around in a 4WD, a stationwagon and a van and I’ve decided that I’m not ready to leave this country in the near future. Currently I’m in Perth, one of the most remote cities in the world and I’m gearing up to head back into the outback. Perth is a great city, however I don’t feel like I have explored it to its full potential. Traveling through Australia, one of the necessities is having a car, which I don’t. But if all goes well, that changes in the next few days. I’m on the hunt to buy my very first car! Yes, you read it correctly, I have had my license for 10 years and never had a car of my own. Many Australians will have their mind blown by this statement. Just one of the cultural differences between Europeans and Australians.
