Western Australia: Perth to Kalbarri (Day 3)

posted by Martin Rubli at 15:12

The third day was more about operating a car than a camera. It took us most of the day to drive the 600 kilometers north to Kalbarri while trying not to make (or become!) roadkill.

It got clear pretty quickly why everybody advises you not to drive after dusk. The second time we saw wild kangaroos was soon after we left the larger Perth area and they were neither wild nor moving. Luckily the same couldn't be said of a pair of emus that were strolling on a stretch of highway in the middle of the day. I barely managed to pull out my camera before they ran away.

We made it to Kalbarri just in time for sunset.

Australian highways may be virtually endless but they are photogenic nonetheless.
