This place immediately sparked my interest, an overgrown abandoned miniature replica of the famous Schloss Neuschwanstein in Bavaria just sitting there. It is part of the old Castle Fun Park in Halls Head, Western Australia however now belongs to nature. Castle Fun Park was built in 1979 and included a miniature village complete with castle, […]
We stumbled upon Gwalia Ghost Town in Western Australia’s Great Victoria Desert 828km from Perth. Originally a gold mining town in 1963 when the mines finally closed the population dropped from 1200 to 40.

Not only were the beaches just as beautiful but Denmark also offered some really unusual sights to see. Green pools was our first port of call, we had […]

An often overlooked stop along the Nullarbor, with stretching deserted beaches and a pier ruin. The old telegraph station from the 70s still stands almost covered by sands and time.

Penguin Island is a small island located 45 minutes south of Perth. See penguins in their natural habitat surrounded by beautiful crystal clear waters.
