It was the May eclipse of the moon that I was on the eastern most point point of Australia and Shark Bay is at the western extreme.
And Denham is the most westerly township in Australia. Steep Point is the the western most point but very difficult to access.
The east and west extremities of Australia are like chalk and cheese. While Cape Byron in the east sits amongst moist rain forest covered mountains but in the west at Shark Bay its where the desert meets the sea.
So desert means lack of water and sparse population.
I wonder if fewer people means more wildlife.
The old man Emu caring for his chicks.
And the beautiful wild dolphins at Monkey Mia that interact with such trust with visitors to their world.
The beaches in this special place are stunning and unique.
To create this national park now world heritage area. The Western Australian Government bought back a number of farming leases.
Sheep had been grazed on the fragile lands.
At the old Peron Station the remains of the old shearing shed still remain.
It was a bit of a trek to get to the old station along a sandy trail
But made all worthwhile by the the thermal spring hot tub at the old station.
So what else could I do.

Great pictures, Adventurer! I was surprised at the terrain you are taking your bike on, and then I noted that you aren’t on a street bike (I hadn’t noticed that before). Love your pics of the turtles and dolphins XOXO
Yes this bike is pretty much a go anywhere bike and I’ve certainly taken if over wild terrain. Glad you like the photos.
Was the water that color before you hopped in!
