What’s that about saving the best for last!!!
NO it’s not the last you’ll hear from me just the last big adventure on our trip!
Steep Point you did not disappoint.
We weren’t sure how to go about seeing Steep Point while we were in Shark Bay mainly because it takes about 4 hours driving just to get there from Denham, and it’s a pretty wild and remote road. You can book to camp there but it’s pretty hard to get a spot, (can’t imagine why – only kidding OMG) and most people tow boats in and camp in tents. So we decided to leave Shark Bay and camp on a station property not that far away so that we could do a day trip to Steep Point. It was always our intention to get as far west as we could and we did it!!!
So we camped on a sheep station that just owns lots of land and lets you go in and enjoy. We stayed at Three bays which had no facilities (some others have drop toilets) so it was back to basics but I’m all over that now!!! Bonus was the first night we were the only ones there and second night a little van came in but we didn’t even see them, what a feeling, I cannot explain it, it’s just surreal!! Before we left on our trip I thought I”d be worried if we were all alone somewhere, it’s the opposite.
And so we did our day trip into Steep Point, pretty challenging road including gravel road, corrugations, steep sand dunes but all very enjoyable. We went all the way to the western side first to see the Zuytdorp cliffs and it’s not very often I’m speechless but I just could not believe the wild beauty of this place. I was speechless, seriously unbelievable beauty.
Surprise sight while driving around this place was the wildflowers, I did not expect them, they were fantastic. So many different colours.
And then for the finale, we drove into Shelter Bay where the campsites are. Note for anybody who ever wants to go, no showers but clear crisp water to swim in so . .. and the cleanest best smelling toilets on our whole trip! Kudo’s to the park ranger and to whoever invented this hybrid toilet, a delight LOL!!!
Heaven on earth!!! Just wished we’d taken our tent and food and drinks etc etc in and then could have stayed longer, but we will go back I promise. Absolutely awesome place, just fucking amazing!!!
