Five on Friday - Rocks and Beaches

Hello

Thanks for visiting.

It's Five on Friday and we're linking up with Tricky at FAST.  Many thanks for hosting.  I hope you've all had a great week.

This week I'm sharing five great beaches in Western Australia.

One - Prevelly

This beach is where the Margaret River meets the Indian Ocean.  It is actually prevented from flowing into the Ocean by a sandbar but if the weather has been bad and the river is swollen, this is breached and stationary waves are created which are popular with surfers.  Have a look at the notice further down.



Some brilliant 'white horses'

Two - Canal Rocks

Further north, the spectacular Canal Rocks are worth a visit.  They have been formed by the granitic gneiss being eroded in straight lines by the sea, producing the canals.  In wild weather, huge waves pound the rocks, the water flowing through the canals.  There is a walkway across to the other rock island.





Three - Bunker Bay

Time for a snack at the Bunkers Beach Cafe before a stroll along a perfect white sandy beach. Bunker Bay is close to Cape Naturaliste, the end, or beginning, of the Cape to Cape walk.




Four - Busselton

Well-known for its wooden jetty which is the longest in the world at almost 2 km, Busselton is a typical seaside town.



You can always catch the little train to have a ride to the end of the jetty if you don't fancy walking!

Five - Freemantle

We're almost back to Perth now but I'll show you more about Freemantle in another post.


Have fun and see you soon.

  9. Oh, to walk on the beach. Nothing rejuvenates more, especially if it's isolated.

    1. I'm used to UK beaches which are often full of pebbles so these were a treat.

  10. I would like to walk along that long wooden jetty and feel as if I'm right out in the sea. All the beaches look inviting.
