Four wheel driving in the Canunda National Park

My place in time #69 -  a photo from the coast.
My place in time # 87 - a car number plate.

My place in time is a local area history project set by Kell at Blackcurrant Photography

The day before Boggy went back to work after the christmas/new years break we went for a four wheel drive through the Canunda National Park to Carpenter Rocks. 

We had a few stops along the way before dropping into the Tavern for a drink and driving back on the bitumen, through Tantanoola.

It really is a spectacular place to explore. 


Some natives we scare from the track not long after we turn off, we did see a
snake too, but he was too quick to pose for a photo. 

It took us around three hours to get Carpenter Rocks with a few stops 


We stop off at Whale Rock and walk to the beach



Whale Rock. Can you see it?



Our next stop is Number 2 rocks, here we are on top of the cliffs

and on the beach

The small bay is protected by reef, some spectacular wave crashing

The road gets a bit lumpier towards Carpenter Rocks

Wrecked in 1997 at Red Rock Bay, Carpenter Rocks. Not. going. anywhere.

The Landy, we only seasonally register it. Boggy uses it to tow the boat, which he sold last week. He's on the look out for a smaller dinghy.

  5. I bet you didn't know that the guy that owned the ship wreck lives very close to where you stayed on your last but very short caravan trip.
