West Coast Road Trip-Australia Part Two

On my most recent travels to Australia I visited the stunning South Western Coast. See previous posts for Perth in particular and the beginning of my South Western Tour.

Starting in Margaret River for this instalment we take a day trip down to Augusta. Easily accessible in a day this excursion is well worth the drive. Located 8km West of Augusta is Cape Leeuwin and its Lighthouse. Meeting point of the Indian and Southern Ocean. Situated on the most South Westerly tip of Australia this famous maritime landmark showcases some of the most breathtaking views.

The site of one of Australia’s most important paleontological digs in the early 1900’s, the cave still contains the fossil jawbone of one of these giant marsupial species embedded within the limestone wall – 50,000 years after the animal roamed the forests above. Situated only 21km south of Margaret River and lies within Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park surrounded by Karri and Marri forest.

What I came to notice about the West Coast is the peaceful tranquility. This side of the world is beautiful, undisturbed by modernity and extremely wild. When you travel to Australia and you want to experience these feelings then West is definitely best.
