The Cape Range rises steeply behind the Western Australian town of Exmouth and the Charles Knife Road is steep, windy and rough but what a ride, especially on the way back down.
Wandering about we found a plugged oil well high up in the Cape Range which was the 2nd well ever drilled in WA. They later found viable oil offshore on Barrow Island and of course the rest is history.
The road is flanked by two canyons with views out to the Indian Ocean. By the time that we finished messing about the car needed a serious tub.
