Miaboolya Beach 21 km north of Carnarvon
19.03.2012 - 20.03.2012 31 °C
We travelled another 450 kilometers north of Hutt River to Carnarvon where we did a final replenishment of our food, drinks, water and fuel as we will be far from towns, villages or shops for the next seven days. The Quantum is great as it has two 180 liter water tanks, solar power with rechargeable batteries and a shower and toilet which makes us completely self sufficient for at least 10 days powerless and free camping.
Miaboolya Beach is 21 kilometers north of Carnarvon but not really a camping area and we had to find a decent spot amongst the beach bushes. We are the only people in the area and it feels great. Again, the flies were a pest during daylight and I guess this will be our fate for some time in northern Australia.
Tomorrow we are heading for Cape Range National Park and Nigaloo Reef. The is the beginning of the whale shark season and I am very eager to do some diving with whale sharks again. I had a number of opportunities to dive and snorkel with whale sharks in north-east South Africa and south-east Mozambique more than 10 years ago and it is really a wonderful experience to swim with these wonderful creatures.
