Location: Coral Bay, Australia

MapWell we left karajini after visiting Tom price and one of the largest open cut iron ore mines in the world (photos uploaded). We spenty a night in the worst campsite in australia called the nanutarra roadhouse!

The next day we woke and drove to Coral Bay and luckily got the last site in the campground. Not too much to say about this area and up to exmouth, we spend our days sunbathing and snorkelling and thats about it! Apart from one day where it rained constantly, the reef has been our daily call and what a reef it is. Not as famous as its east coast cousin, the ningaloo reef is 100 times closer to the shore so you can literally wade out, flop forward and it is there in front of you! We have seen turtles. sharks, sting rays and 000's of fish!

We are getting our last little dose of sun as from here on its due south and back to the australian winter!!!
