Travelling around Australia in a motorhome. A story of our travels starting from NSW then through Queensland, across to Northern Territory and Western Australia, then to South Australia, Victoria and finally across the seas to Tasmania. We have enjoyed everywhere we have visited and look forward to setting off again in our motorhome.

Coral Bay 22 October 2006

After one quick, last look at Exmouth, we set off down the road to Coral Bay. Called in to the prawn farm but it was closed. Very disappointing! We had indulged with our Swiss companions on our way in with 1kg of tiger and king prawns that were huge, fresh cooked and not frozen. Moema and Alamo left two days before to ride on into the wind that is going to be hard work for them. As they leave at 5am the wind is less ferocious. Coral Bay is at the southern edge of Ningaloo Reef and a lot more accessible and touristy. It is still only a small village consisted of a few houses and shops, two caravan parks, a hotel, 25 prominent Telstra phones (now we know where they are all going) and 1,000 unregistered quad bikes – they were everywhere and seemed to be the locals preferred method of transport. Arrived about 5pm and Moema and Alamo greeted us yet again! It had been a very windy afternoon and although it continued that way in the evening we still went for a walk along the beach. Found lots of beach alcoves out of the wind and took time out to watch the sunset on the water again. Then home to a great dinner and a glass of red.
