27-28 April, 2015: Exploring Cape Range National Park and Yardie Creek
We spent time in Cape Range National Park, catching up with Neko and her parents once more at the Yardie Creek Trail and stopping by their camper parked at Sandy Bay. Although we had gotten (unhappily) used to the gazillions of flies plaguing WA this season, it was hilarious to see Neko swamped by her hat net!!
Near the boat launch we were surprised to see magnificent marine fossils of a 40-thousand-year old coral reef.
Called in to most of the beaches in the National Park including Turquoise Beach and Oyster Stacks. Walked the debris-laden shore of Lighthouse Bay, overlooking the remains of the SS Mildura which ran aground during a cyclone in 1907.
