There is more to see between Perth and Exmouth. We drove by on the way up, but now we had some more time to have a closer look at them.
For one, there is Kalbarri National Park, which consists of the Murchison River gorge and the Zuytdorp Cliffs at the coast. We hiked a bit in each part and discovered Natures Window and the Natural Bridge.
Further south we encountered a pink lake, which looks quite like it. Unfortunately it doesn’t show very well in the pictures. The color is due to some algae in the water.
Our next stop was the Hutt River Principality, where we had an audience with his royal Highness Prince Leonard. He is the ruler of this independent sovereign state of the size of Hong Kong. He gained independence in 1970 and therefore does not pay any income taxes to Australia.
In the evening we set out to explore the Nambung National Park. It is home to the Pinnacles, thousands of pointed rocks in the middle of a desert. The limestone pillars were surrounded by soil, which eroded over the years.
