I’m really thrilled and grateful to have a story in print again and this time in a new publication for me, 4WD Touring Australia. The story is on ‘Shark Bay – The Red White and Blue of Francois Peron National Park’ and the edition is dedicated mostly to Western Australia, ‘Westworld’ as it is titled. Unfortunately they have spelt my name wrong in the byline but despite that, hopefully the story does the region justice and the photos by myself and the publisher Carlisle Rogers, look stunning in the publication. I think one of the things that stood out most to me when visiting WA for the first time was the intensity and brilliance of the diametrically opposed colours of the landscape. This was no more obvious than when we visited this park.
What makes a holiday memorable? Jaw dropping scenery sure, balmy weather absolutely, good food and wines does it for me too and of course the people you meet along the way. But, some of the stand out experiences on our last road trip were the encounters we had with animals.
The experiences we had are now forever etched in my memory and will be synonymous with place names such as Hamelin Bay, Monkey Mia, Steep Point, Francois Peron National Park and Cape Range National Park.
