AFTER a rest day in Perth the Crew set off for the south west, travelling to Margaret River, Albany and Esperance. This coastline is spectacular. It is hard to believe the rugged coastline and the landscape changes rapidly, making every leg of the journey very interesting.
Esperance is a beautiful coastal port where huge grain ships are loaded. It would be easy to spend hours just looking at the coast and the ships being loaded.
We then headed inland as we travelled north to Balladonia. We rode the longest straight road in Australia travelling 146 km without any bend in the road. We then stayed in Eucla before crossing the Nullabor. The Great Australian Bight was incredible and such a spectacle compared to the flat land adjacent to it.
We arrived at Ceduna for the night and are now in Port Lincoln. Another spectacular coastline and ever changing landscape.
Only one week to go to finish our epic journey, lots of money being raised as we go. It is amazing to hear the stories of how many people's lives have been touched by the loss of a child to cancer, way too many. If what we are doing helps then it has all been worth it.
The Cooma Crew is a group of locals who are on a 15,000 kilometre motor bike around Australia to raise funds for the Steven Walter Children's Cancer Foundation.
