EP5 TRIP AROUND AUSTRALIA / SHARK BAY PT1 / STEEP POINT / USELESS LOOP / FALSE ENTRANCE
me so g'day guys um welcome to a new episode this one's going to be super exciting we don't even know what's installed for us we just pulled off the uh

shark

bay road the main road going out to denham um onto the state

point

peninsula road um i forget what the road's actually called let me have a look here on the bloody map so we're on

useless

loot road um heading out to bloody we're going to stay at

false

entrance

tonight and then drop the caravan there and hopefully get up to state

point

um have a look up there and do some adventuring but yeah we don't even know what the track's like or anything people are saying don't bring your caravan some things are saying take your caravan so it's going to be exciting i hope we get there for our sake but um if we don't it'll be good viewing so sit back grab a coldie and enjoy so we are out here somewhere so we're just coming up here and then we're going to turn left onto the four wheel drive track and then we're coming right down to

false

entrance

which is down here so tomorrow we'll do a day

trip

up and go have a look at the rest of the national park happened all right so we're about 55 minutes from

false

entrance

we've just pulled over and we're just going to have a little check of the van it's the first time we've done any real corrugations in it so we're just going to have a check make sure that everything's okay um and see how...

she's holding up no dust so far that corrugation is a good 70mm i can 70mm corrugation so far it is not a nice trap to drive good day guys we made it to our

false

entrance

we are knackered um just laying in bed went for a little drive up to the blow holes which is pretty cool i'll put some uh video over this of that also checked out the

point

there's a couple guys fishing there and they just keep getting

shark

so which uh doesn't give me much hope of catching a good fish um tomorrow we're gonna day

trip

up to

steep

point

it's about 48 k's of corrugations yep more corrugations um and yeah but apparently there's a few nice little spots along the way that are pretty good for fishing so hopefully we can pick up a fish to put in the freezer um we defied odds they said we couldn't get a caravan in here but we bloody did so a lot of corrugations but wouldn't recommend it if you've got um

false

teeth or you know loose fillings or anything like that i'd definitely be on the deck by the time you get here um i saw a boat i had to get left on the side of the track because the obviously the trailer broke um make sure everything's pretty tight before you hit the track but it's definitely doable um as long as you're no bigger than us i reckon you get in here and drop your tires down um so yeah the rest of the arvo we're just gonna chill i think one last thing guys um it's eight dollars per person per night you've got...

to now book through the depor website online you can't just rock up and pick a site because it's all online now which is strange how they're treating it like a hotel service for a bit of dirt on the ground but anyway that's a different story um so yeah make sure you do it online before you get here i'm not too sure if the range is even going to come around and check but do the righty pay eight bucks and um come snag a sick spot right on the beach all right guys sarah's really happy she just found some curry shells right now i can't well that's it not that taken but we definitely will be putting them back oh she just dumped a heap of sand in the car well done um just our camp's just here um the van's just there and then that's the beach right there we're just gonna go down see if we can catch a few little fish we're running out of lunches so we need to catch something to to be able to live pretty much sounds dramatic but it's pretty true um to live so we'll see how we go learn how to tie a braid knot too it's not an fg but it'll do you okay oh now the pressure's on we've just got some tika masala going on got some rice potatoes we'll fry off some onion when we have room on the cooker and then some chicken thighs and chopped tomatoes yum seeing as i'm doing the dishes you've made three massive pots yes because no one likes hard potatoes in their curry i don't smells good on our way...

out to

steep

point

it's been pretty nice so far hasn't been too um out of control the corrugations are probably really bad for the first sort of 10 20 k's and then sort of opened up into this sort of sandy landscape um i reckon if the truck went straight from um turn off all the way to

steep

point

it'd take like 10 minutes but you pretty much have to snake around these huge dune systems um that you can't get over they're just massive so we find ourselves coming back on ourself and then back around definitely wouldn't have got the van in i reckon we we would have been able to drag it in but the issue is when someone's coming the other way single lighting track we'd have to find somewhere to pull off the track and trying to pull off the track with a 10 meter vehicle um yeah it's it wouldn't be the easiest thing but yeah it's doable um the track's not that soft because there's been a bit of rain um sorry about my voice it's probably going through but um the corrugations have gotten better but as you go so now we're 20 k's away from state

point

we'll go check that out hey guys um we're just at a little bay somewhere we have no idea where we are just stop there's no one around so no signs nothing it's so beautiful the water is like crystal clear you can literally see the fish swimming by kellen's been trying to catch some fish brim so that's why they're not taking any stick baits...
they're just buffies but um keep looking gotta get a beer surely you gotta get one fish no fish but we've got two minute noodles pretty good lunch pretty good spot do do so good morning um we have just packed up at

false

entrance

and we're heading up to wilbon campsite today um pretty excited to go down the hundred kilometres of corrugations we've packed the van up pretty tight just so nothing rattles around because we weren't quite prepared we didn't actually know what we're getting ourselves into when we came down here so um if you like which i say like every episode yeah yeah um yeah so we're gonna do that we'll try and film a little bit of the track on the way out just so you guys know what you're getting yourselves into um we wish someone filmed the track for us so we'll try to do a little bit for you guys um just to put it in a nutshell it's pretty corrugated sealed road and then it goes corrugated for about 50 k's and then you turn off onto the full drive track it goes single lane um it gets a bit sandy but we'll show you all that um on another note how sick was yesterday at state

point

that was such a good day out there it was amazing it's so pretty all the beaches and stuff and there's no one around you can just get your own little bay as you saw with no one there and it's just perfect esperance blue waters but the warmth yeah it's warm water so i didn't get it if you're...
coming camp there like if you're gonna leave your van somewhere go camp there not

false

entrance

because those campsites were unreal i didn't catch any fish yesterday that's all right it just wasn't my day um caught a little card caught a heap of trumpeters they were just taking my bait um yeah it's all good but we um we'll get them next time so bye yeah hey guys just woke up here at whalebone beautiful sunrise as you would have seen so today's plan tried to go get a few fish i went for a late snorkel yesterday when it was almost dark and saw some black snapper and stuff down the

point

so i'm gonna get bait up a hook and see if i can get one of them or maybe a bigger blue bone or something um saw a few size ones down there i couldn't get gm though for some reason just kept spooking them so um then we're heading to a caravan park in denim we're gonna park up there where we'll go to monks maya for a day

trip

because they wanted something ridiculous like 65 bucks a night for unpowered site which is crazy um definitely not paying that um after that we'll do a few free camps up the top of the peninsula which um it's pretty good fishing out here so stay tuned for that this episode might be a long one because we're not even halfway through and yeah we still got so much more to do so anyway i'm gonna drink my coffee and uh we'll get ready for the rest of the day do oh the blue bone good morning guys um...
we have just come into

shark

bay caravan park we've decided to do a load of washing and as you can see is pouring with rain outside literally it was like clear skies yesterday when we washed it hung it all out um and then last night it has buffered down and it's still raining today so probably gonna have to fork out for the dryer we haven't been checking the weather we just assumed that there'd be no rain up here but we are wrong that concludes today's episode um i'm going to split

shark

bay up into two because it's just going to be crazy long it'll end up being an hour so this is part one stay tuned for part two next week um we're heading out right now to beat the dolphins sarah really wanted to do that so we're going to go do that if you don't want to um do it in monkey maya another good place to see dolphins is actually bunbury the dolphin discovery center there where the dolphins regularly come in and like brush up against your feet exactly the same as monkey meyer except there's only probably like three or four people down there with you so keep that in mind dhi dirk hartog island we didn't decide to do that this time because it was going to cost us about 9.50 return to get the car in the van over there and back that's huge investment for us at the moment um if you want to join our patreons though we get a few more patreons we'll do it um that'd be good put the link in the description it's only two bucks...
a week um support us a massive way and yeah it'll it'll enable us to do cool things like that and improve our videos and stuff so well that's the reason why we didn't do dirt hearts or garland just to save anyone asking um we'll do it one day anyway stay tuned for next week's episode
