We drove down to a small town called Margaret River, where we stayed the night before going onto the see Mamouth Cave the following day. This awe inspiring cave is a natural capsule and home to ancient fossil remains of extinct animals.
On the return trip to Perth we stopped off at Bussleton Jetty, The Busselton Jetty, measured at 1841 metes, is the longest wooden jetty (pier) in the southern hemisphere and one of Australia's most unique eco-tourism sites.
The Busselton Jetty, with more than 300 individual marine species, is host to an awe inspiring "forest" of vividly-coloured tropical and sub-tropical corals, sponges, fish and invertebrates
Finally, we stayed the night in Freemantle for my last night in Australia :( Thw hostel was a converted Firestation. Freo, as it is know by the locals, is quite a relaxed small town with lots of cafes and boutique shops. The Australia v Croatia game was on that night so didn't really get much sleep due the cheers and subsequent celebrations!

Hope you're all well
