It doesn’t get any better than this …

Blow my mind, I’m just wrapped to be part of helping people to live the dream!

Hi Dave, just a quick note to thank you for the excellent tour to West Cape
Howe NP.

I’m now back in the office and back to reality after such an incredible trip
down south to Denmark.

We loved the place so much we put an offer on a property there and has since
been accepted, so Denmark will now be a part of our lives into the future.

Felicity and I had an opportunity we would not normally get because we don’t
have a 4×4, and we don’t have the firsthand experience that you have.

You passion for the area whether the extraordinary Dolerite cliffs, secret
surf spots, native flora and fauna, and sheer power of the ocean provided a
beautiful insight into this unique region.

The icing on the cake however was the view to Shelley Beach from the hill
where we had the privilege of seeing a large school of salmon being
corralled by a school of very large sharks.

See you again, thanks from Mark and Felicity

Gondwana Jigsaw

Originally posted on Out and About in Denmark WA:

I’ve been pondering the mystery of our land’s ancient past. The significance of Gondwanaland to our present-day landscape was brought into stark relief today when Dr Dave returned from a stunning day tour to West Cape Howe National Park where the wild weather revealed the awesome power of the southern ocean. He burst into Adventure HQ, the wind having whipped his hair into a frenzy, bursting to tell me about the massive waves that had lept up the cliff face, spraying everyone with salt mist. Apparently it precipitated a photographic frenzy, that ended in all cameras running out of power!

West Cape Howe at its best

This shot reveals some of the story and raises the question: How do we know that Antarctica and Australia were joined?

West Cape Howe is the ideal location to learn about Gondwana and our ancient links to Antarctica. These stone cliffs, which drop 80 metres…
