Honeycombs Beach, South Western Australia
It’s easy to take where you live for granted.
Having visitors over Christmas reminds me of how lucky we are in the South West. It really is spectacular.
We have amazing beaches, cafes and restaurants, as well as wineries, forests, shopping and a fantastic community.

Down South is Lonely Planet’s Best in Asia Pacific 2019 ! How awesome is that?! Of course, I’ve always known that. It’s why I live in Dunsborough. If you haven’t visited yet, then you definitely should. Maybe wait until summer though. It’s a bit wet and cold at the moment.
This is what Lonely Planets had to say – “Take one look at Meelup Beach and you’ll wonder where it’s been all your life: the West Australian bush parts to reveal ocean the hue of a Bombay Sapphire bottle, which is typical of the coastline stretching from Margaret River to the state’s south. Beyond the sand, some of the country’s slickest wineries, breweries and restaurants lie between tracts of tall-tree forest and kangaroo-dotted farmland.”

Who doesn’t like a salt pond? What??? Is there someone out there who doesn’t? I don’t believe it. Some of the best aerial images I have seen are over these amazing places. Again WA has the best ones (sorry the rest of the country) but then everything is better in WA. With a few exceptions like Dunsborough which really is horrible (you should stay away- nothing to see here). This image however was shot in Penong, SA so I have to give them that one. It was taken on a shoot for RM Williams and still one of my favourites to this day.
