See what Kate is experiencing #JustAnotherDayInWA

The West Coast of Australia… Rumour has has it that those wise enough to break the norm and venture in the opposite direction of the well-trodden East Coast will fall in love and be greatly rewarded with a unforgettable natural beauty… Well, see below for the astounding proof!

‘Adventurous Kate’ has lived up to her name and devoured every breath-taking adventure, sight and experience Western Australia has had to offer; And believe us, the West Coast is like an all you can eat buffet of eye-candy! Here’s Kate’s story.

Quokka selfie time

I’ve been waiting my whole life for this — I met a #quokka! These are the most adorable, sweet, and smiley animals I’ve ever seen. They’re the closest thing I’ve met to Disney animals! The #quokkaselfie has become the ultimate souvenir of a trip to Their home, #rottnestisland, and Western Australia as a whole. They love the camera! Almost as much as giving you kisses. Rottnest Island, aka #Rotto, is such a cool day trip. Rent bikes and explore the white sand beaches and clear waters! If you can tear yourself away from playing with the nearly 18,000 quokkas, that is! #justanotherdayinwa @statravel @westernaustralia #lovemyrotto #rottnestexpress #happyquokkamonday Tomorrow @freiseindesign_lifestyle_blog and I start our weeklong road trip up the Coral Coast! SO EXCITED! Western Australia is the Bestern Australia! A photo posted by Kate McCulley (@adventurouskate) on

Hutt Lagoon – A rose lake (the colour, not the tasty rosé wine)

Pink lakes exist — and several are in Western Australia! Just outside Kalbarri on the Coral Coast is Hutt Lagoon, where algae levels have turned the lake a brilliant shade of rose. Just how pink it gets depends on time of year and day, but I found that it got pinkest just after the sun dipped beneath the horizon. Otherwise it can fluctuate between pink and shades of blue and silver. You need to see this place! It’s actually safe to get in, but high salt levels mean I wouldn’t recommend cutting yourself. Eek. #pinklake #justanotherdayinwa #thisiswa @statravel @westernaustralia I’m in Kalbarri tonight and tomorrow — going canoeing and hiking in the national park tomorrow!

Kalbarri – barri nice indeed

Shark Bay – Ooo ha ha (FYI Finding Nemo ‘Shark Bait’ reference!)

Monkey Mia – A dolphins happy place

You never forget the first time you see a #dolphin in the wild! One of the best places to see dolphins roam free in #Australia is #MonkeyMia in the #SharkBay region. Every morning, dolphins come to feed at the shore. Unlike most dolphin tourism activities, this is an event created with sustainability in mind. Monkey Mia’s local scientists create a small customized portion of fish for each dolphin — only a few get to eat each day — and this keeps them from becoming dependent. As a #unescoworldheritage site, the protection of Shark Bay is the biggest goal. As a result, it’s calm and quiet and clear here. Few boats go out and the coast is mostly undeveloped. It’s one of my favorite spots in WA so far. #justanotherdayinwa @statravel @westernaustralia #unesco #seeaustralia #tropicofcapricorn #thisiswa @australiascoralcoast Follow adventurouskate on Snapchat for more live updates from the coast! Monkey Mia today, snorkeling with manta rays on Ningaloo Reef tomorrow! A photo posted by Kate McCulley (@adventurouskate) on

Coral Bay – Sunset game, strong

Karijini National Park – Simply gorge-ous

Karijini Eco Retreat – Oh my, starry eyed surprise

I’m nervous to share this — this is my first real night photo ever. It’s not great. But it’s my first — so there’s nowhere to go but up. The coolest place I stayed on my Western Australia road trip was #Karijini Eco Retreat in Karijini National Park. The camp is fully sustainable and off the grid, run by solar power. I stayed in a deluxe tent like this one, which had a queen sized bed and its own bathroom with a half-outdoor solar-powered shower. There are also simple tents with shared bathrooms and even DORM TENTS that can sleep eight if you’re on a budget! At night, the trees light up beautifully. As a lifelong camper, I loved waking up to the sunrise through the unzipped window. If I ever come back to Karijini (and I would LOVE TO) I can’t imagine staying anywhere else.

Rottnest Island – Rott to shabby at all

Impressed? We don’t blame you! WA really is an incredible unsung paradise… but the secrets out, so make the most of it! Discover more here

  1. That's not what I'm talking about at all. These are projects entered in the database as supply additions, consumption is another issue entirely. For 2009-2011 the surplus after factoring in decline is 121928194.83/2635./8 kb/d. These numbers are substantially higher than what I got from the Wiki just a year ago; even 2009 seems to have been revised upward 662 kb/d. As I point out at my blog Skrebowski suggested a higher supply build in his own analysis, perhaps the Wiki people have caught up with his findings.

  5. Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many
    options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations?
    Bless you!

  6. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite
    reason seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out
    the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a
    signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
