Back to Perth and Sydney

We set of from Margaret River with mild trepidation not knowing if we would be able to fly back to Sydney.

Leaving Margaret River
Margaret River is an up and coming Wine producing area.

Margaret River’s wine history began in the 1830s when the Bussell family planted their first vines to make wine for home. However, the region didn’t really take flight until two research scientists landed here in the 1950s, almost 100 years later.

Israelites Bay on the Great Australian Bight.

The Great Australian Bight is a large open bay off the central and western parts of the southern coastline of mainland Australia. The Bight’s boundaries are from Cape Pasley, Western Australia, to Cape Carnot, South Australia. This is a distance of 1,160 km or 720 miles. The much more accepted name in Australia for the connected waterbody is the Southern Ocean rather than the Indian Ocean. The settlements along the coastline with access to the Bight and facilities are Ceduna and Eucla. Some other locations on the Eyre Highway or on the Nullarbor do not have facilities or easy access.

These look like dried up salt beds. Any body know what they are?
