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

adventuredoctor:

I revisited this classic piece on Gondwana, an oldie but a goodie, just in time for the coming winter, as the swell builds the waves are coming. There will be high drama at West Cape Howe yet again!

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…

There is no better way to experience the area’s sights and sounds than from the water. Imagine yourself paddling along the Denmark River, gazing up at the magnificent Karri trees and paperbarks that line the tranquil river bank. The Denmark River has an abundance of water birds you can try and spot on the way. Canoe or kayak hire includes lifejackets and paddles. Double or single kayaks also available. Just come ready to have fun on the river! Not to be missed when in Denmark, Western Australia.

What does adventure mean to you?

The Great South West Edge

West Cape Howe National Park – The Great South West Edge

By David Bomba

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that adventure means different things to different people. One person may experience an adrenalin rush from climbing mountains while another person may achieve a sense of adventure while photographing wildflowers on a bushwalk.

For me adventure is about engaging with the landscape in order to develop a deeper appreciation of an area’s unique ecology. One of my greatest joys is finding a new (for me) plant or observing a new bird species, and then understanding how and why that plant or animal is where it is. It is the interconnectivity of geology, flora and fauna that I find truly awe-inspiring.

I’m fortunate to live in a part of the world still dominated by wilderness, and to work in a job that allows me to indulge my love of adventure and exploration. I get my daily dose of inspiration by discovering isolated terrestrial and marine environments in national parks and nature reserves, and by exploring inlets, rivers and coastlines. But, for me, the joy of adventure not only means taking time out to connect with diverse landscapes, but also to understand and meet the people who inhabit them. After all, while adventure is often associated with a personal sense of accomplishment for having reached a set objective and overcoming challenges along the way, it becomes all the more real and exciting when you get to share it with others.

What does adventure mean to you?

For Adventure, Dr Dave style, be inspired by my Postcards WA episode.

Need more inspiration? Then have a look at: Walking the Bibbulmun Track and Cycle the Munda Biddi Trail - two of my favourite trails in Australia’s South West.
