Western Australia is big. Really big.
It's twelve times bigger than the UK, and twenty times bigger than England....
I'm starting to understand the sheer scale of the place after today.
I asked Mark to take us somewhere we hadn't been, so we looked on the map and decided to go to Wave Rock.
It was a little bit further than it looked on the map.
Four hours later we arrived at a big rock - Amazing Thing No. 1.
It is a pretty impressive big rock.
Amazing Thing No.2 - we drove a few km down the road and found a cave complete with real ancient cave paintings -
It's the only cave I would consider living in - nice high ceiling and natural light - and these amazing wall paintings -
Amazing Thing No. 3 was a bonus - we got out of the car and Mark nearly climbed a tree when he thought he saw a snake...
It wasn't a snake - can you tell what it is?
It's a chain of 55 furry caterpillars following the leader to a new tree -
We watched until they were all safely up in the tree.
(I just googled them and they are called Processionary Caterpillars.)
Oh - and then we drove four hours home...
