Pink Lake Port Gregory
Lynton Historic site (1853)
Port Gregory lies near the mouth of the Hutt River on Western Australia's coral coast and is home to the Pink Lake (Hutt Lagoon). Depending on the time of day and the cloud cover, the lake changes from red to bubble gum pink, to a lilac purple. The best time to see the lake is mid morning or sundown.
Kalbarri is located at the mouth of the Murchison River, on the Western Australian coastline. Its known for it's seaside cliffs, estuary beach and the wild pelican feeding. The coast is home to resident dolphins and the seasonal humpback whales, seen from a boardwalk running between Island Rock and Natural Bridge.
Taking a tour out to Mingenew and seeing some of the historical buildings are not complete without taking in the beautiful vistas you see from Mingenew Hill, with the ever bright yellow of the canola (when in season around August) with the blue ski and the abundance of wildflowers,this is truly a sight not to be missed during our visits, for the wildflower season.
Geraldton is a coastal city in the Midwest Region of Western Australia, 424 kilometres north of Perth. The port of Geraldton is a major west coast seaport as well as an important service and logistics center for regional mining, fishing wheat, sheep and tourism.
