Road Trip WA 2016 – Denmark

Road Trip Day 2


After a good night sleep, I woke up to cool crisp air. I put on a jacket, picked up a cup of coffee and walked out of our chalet. It was a bit cloudy and the air was the mix of the tree, the flowers and the grass. I wished that I could put them into jars for late (or sell them to China and make millions! 🙂 ). The front lawn felt like a green carpet, slightly wet. The kookaburras and some other birds were already singing and playing amongst the trees. I walked straight down to the river side. The water flows south in a steady pace and on the other side, it was a national park. Giant trees stood there along the banks. The more I looked at them, the more mysterious they seemed. I was fully expecting some kind of monster jumping out of the woods – thank goodness that there was a river protecting me. LOL! What would the monster look like? I hoped that it could not fly! 🙂

Road Trip WA 2016 – Valley of the Giants

The Tree Top Walk 600-metre walk has a gentle gradient, suitable for children and all ages, including wheelchairs and strollers.

A walk trail links the Tree Top Walk to the Ancient Empire boardwalk where you can get up close and personal to the 400-year-old giants of the forest.

This is the first time I come to the Tree Top Walk in Western Australia.

The Tree Top Walk is located at the Valley of the Giants. Don’t you just love the name! Whenever I saw the name, I always had the image of the Ent from the Lord of the Rings in my mind.

The Valley of the Giants’ website contain good information about the place and everything else related to it. Head over there if you would like to plan for a trip too.

Road Trip WA 2016 – Walpole & Nornalop

Road Trip Day 1

We planned to leave Perth at 8am. We actually left Perth around 9.30am due to the last minute search of a GPS. I decided not to get upset about it. 🙂

Our first resting stop: Bunbury. It’s been years since I last visited Bunbury. We drove straight to the Marlston Hill Lookout Tower. It was a bit windy at the top of the tower but the view was stunning (see featured photo). It’s a great resting point.

The sandy beach of Bunbury. I took this photo while dad ran onto the beach to chase his hat. 🙂 I caught a photo of him with his arms in the air (trying to hold onto his hat) and his hat floating in the air too (flying away). I laughed every time when I saw that photo.
