Ravensthorpe to Albany
There are two mangy sheep and a possessive emu at the door!
We are on the South Coast Highway and we roll on through farmlands and mallee scrub and pass dozens of road trains that are in more of a hurry than us. About 50kms out of Albany the scenery suddenly changes to eucalypt plantations then small green farms.
We check into Emu Point Big4 caravan park and find ourselves in a green and shady park just metres from the beach. Two minutes walk away is a charming cafe overlooking Emu Point and the entrance to Oyster Harbour. We try the oysters of course.
A short drive away is Middleton Beach, all white sand and flanked by Norfolk Pines. The town of Albany wraps itself around the base of the granite outcrop of Mt. Clarence and Mt. Adelaide like a blanket. The historical past of the town is visible on Stirling Terrace where a row of old hotels and fine buildings overlook King George Sound.
