Western Australia - Day 1

We boarded our flight for Perth and took off right on time. It was a very pleasant 3 hour flight. It wasn't full which meant we could spread out with a seat between us. Lunch was a hot meal (Cajun chicken with rice, lamb kofta with risoni or a chickpea and prosciutto salad - all yummy!). Staff were friendly and offered lots of wine, tea and coffee, water and Lindt chocolates...

We had a bit of trouble when we got our rent-a-car. We thought a small SUV would do us but we just couldn't fit our 4 bags in the back so we got a Ford Mondeo sedan and they fitted perfectly. The weather in Perth is hot, hot, hot at 40C!  Heading south should be a bit cooler!

We had a 3 hour drive south from Perth to Dunsborough. Most of it two lane split freeway which was good.  We went through an area that had been burnt and saw a fire burning off in the distance too.

We stopped for groceries in Bunbury then continued on to our digs at Dunsborough. We love our villa, it is very comfortable and home for 3 nights...

 We made steak tacos for dinner - yummy!  It cooled of nicely so we sat outside until bedtime. The 2.5 hour time difference made it a long day.

Cheers - Joolz xx

  1. Joolz, I hope the heat isn't too bad there. I saw the forecast for Perth and felt sorry for the residents.

  2. Enjoy your stay, I love WA and hope to go back for a 4th visit soon. Margaret River is lovely and the journey from Perth takes you past some equally wonderful places.I like to stop off at Mandurah for a couple of hours and spot the dolphins
