    Day 43/180 – Kalbarri National Park

    Jackaroo Odometer 248 389 Good morning everyone, today was a total blast! Just look at the images. The landscape is incredible in the region and some of the national park is definitely worth the effort. I took it upon myself to ride the coastal paths along the cliff tops of the coast. Its very dramatic and is rugged terrain much like

    Day 42/180 Drummond Cove to Northampton

    Jackaroo Odometer – 249 287 The title is a little deceiving ‘Northhampton’ because I actually didn’t go through the town, I skipped along the coastal road towards Horrocks in search of waves. I also was lead to believe there isn’t much in Northampton so if you pressed for time this is not a place high on the priority list. Take

    Day 41/180 Geralton Northern Beaches

    Jackaroo Odometer – 248 643 Much like yesterday I have planned on visiting surrounding suburbs but before I could blink it I wanted to take in a little surfing at a place called Flat rocks. It was good, take my word for it. I checked out some of the local attractions including this hue Australian flag atop a creative shape form….

    Day 40/180 – Geralton Race Day

    Jackaroo Odometer – 248 609 I won’t write to much about today since it was nothing more then a big bash with plenty of drinks and free flowing cocktails. Race day and Geralton comes alive with locals from all around the region making the effort to get to the race course. Fashions on the field and plenty of winning ticket

    Day 39/180 – Geralton

    Jackaroo Odometer – 248 602 After waking up with straight offshore winds I am it my priority to find some good quality waves in the region. Unfortunately by the time I got my shit together the winds had swung onshore. Let this be a lesson to all you folks out there… if there are waves, just surf! The longer you

    Day 38/180 Jurien Bay – Leeman – Port Denison

    Jackaroo Odometer – 248 580 Much like yesterday I took a lazy relaxed approach to the day. Knowing I have a few days up my sleeve I though it might be best if I take my time and make sure I see everything. Its quite possible I will never be back in this region again so with that in mind….

    Day 37/180 Lancelin

    Jackaroo Odometer – 248 540 After moving on in the morning I was very keen to get to a place called Lancelin about 3-4 hours south of Geralton. The place has some really good waves around the area and I was not disappointed. Small but super fun around 3ft with perfect little lines coming through. It was a great location

    Day 36/180 Guilderton – Moore River

    Jackaroo Odometer – 248 490 After a stress fill day Yesterday trying to figure out what to do about my laptop I’ve pulled into Guilderton National Park for rest and relaxation. I needed it! What a wonderful spot this is, nestled alongside the river and Golf course. I’m totally surprised at just how nice this little location is! Its only a

    Day 35/180 – Yanchep – Two Rocks

    Jackaroo Odometer – 248 490 I won’t bore you with the details but today was a eventful day not because of the locations I visited but the unfortunate death of my computer! This was the first unplanned negative event of the trip. I’ve been fortunate with the car and the surf but the death of my computer means I’ll be

    Day 34/180 – Joondalup – Mindarie

    Jackaroo Odometer – 248 260 Today much like any day starts off early! The early bird gets the worm… Riding North from Innaloo you will find the suburbs stretch out like a never ending sea of construction. Its amazing how much people can reshape a landscape. From the once vegetated landscape to a vision of development. The question remains are we

    Day 33/180 Perth

    Jackaroo Odometer – 248 210 Where to start…. well I’m finally at my Cousin’s house and looking forward to catching up when she arrives home from work! Instead I will spend the day driving around the northern suburbs of Perth. Its such a big city it will take more then a few days to round up the km’s and check this

    Day 32/180 Fremantle

    Jackaroo Odometer 248 139 Fremantle is not what you’d expect in that everything is much bigger then you might originally think. I had visioned a small city suburb south of Perth but its a city in itself and is much larger then first glance. I was surprised to see the suburbs extend beyond view and the thought of riding every street in

    Day 31/180 Mandurah

    Jackaroo Odometer – 248 082 After spending the night on the road and arriving in Mandurah early I have to say you might have to visit this place for yourself….. its worth the time! Interestingly is a growth center in Western Australia and I can see why. Its got a fantastic waterfront much like Bunbury but with greater influence from

    Day 30/180 Bunbury – Mandurah

    Jackaroo Odometer – 247 823 Surprise, Surprise…. Bunbury is a great place for a young designer to visit. So many different residential design ideas being tried. Some effective… some not so much. Great place for a ride too see the sights and check out the views. I really enjoyed Bunbury with its laid back city and modest size. It made

    Day 29/180 – Busslton – Bunbury

    Jackaroo Odometer – 248 078 Well what to say which hasn’t already been said …. traveling is the best! Get out there! Australia has some much to see and do…. experience it at least once! Starting in Busselton this morning I was surprised by its size. I was expecting a slightly larger location but its really just a small town with not

    Day 28/180 Yallingup to Busslton

    Jackaroo Odometer 247 578 I’ll start with the obvious… the surf was still pumping!! Early morning starts are becoming the norm and my afternoon nap is essential for Recovery. Today I left Yallingup after a morning session and began the long road north to Perth. I would find Busslton in the late afternoon as a great destination for relaxation but

    Day 27/180 – North Point to Yallinup

    Jackaroo Odometer 247 578 Screaming jets that night at the Settlers tavern followed up with some early morning barrels at North Point. Amazing surf location especially when its over 6ft as this place is just incredible. The longest barrel I’ve surfed since kirra in QLD which I expect to hit on about day 110/180 looking forward to the east coast…..

    Day 26/180 – Margret River

    Jackaroo Odometer 247 368 Well what a day, not much can be said except ‘exceptional’ the waves pumped and I got some sick pits that will forever belong in my memory. I surfed this place out the front of this boat ramp. A fair paddle out to the bombie I might add. Its about a 20 min paddle with the

    Day 25/180 – Margret River surrounds

    Jackaroo Odometer – 247120 Unfortunatly I originally wrote over the top of today’s events so I’ll post the images of the day. Architecture of Margret River and surroundings. Some very interesting ideas being thrown around even a few Pirates of the Caribbean type timber deck as seen below. A little disappointing to see some Metricon and Simmons specials in the

    Day 24/180 – Margret River

    Jackaroo Odometer 247 298 Sick as a dog! I’m totally wrecked….. after 24 days I think my body has had enough. I awoke with a brain thumping from ear to ear. Not a happy day and this post will be short. I spent most of the day in bed but I did manage to take a few pictures of the
