Bucket List
« on: December 29, 2015, 13:02 »
Hi everyone.. just googled and found you on line.  Quite overwhelming the information here.  Well, I joined the forum.  I am a Canuck who cruises on his sail boat spring to fall in the coastal wilds of British Columbia Canada.  A bucket list wish is near to be realized as I will be visiting my daughter who has lived and worked in Perth these past 12 years.  Plan to spend 5 weeks, end of Feb to end of March or so.   Pretty fit nearing my 70's and looking forward to a go at Oz metal detecting with my TDI Pro.  So, if anyone could refer me to a link or 2 perhaps a book...I would love to learn more.  My plan is just to meander about WA south part in a rented van or some such... even thought of a bike and tent kinda thing staying at parks etc.  I know I have a lot to learn before I leave.   A certain amount of time with my daughter and then get outback out there ... and some time with her before I leave.  I do have a youtube site you can get a bit of taste of BC coast.     And a very sincere wish to all here... and good hunting...prosperous, healthy new year....

Best books for wa is the roads and tracks western australia and also the hema map book western australia.   . Both books have a section on camp sites and what is available at those sites .  You can  buy them at the newsagent or a four wheel drive store or a camping store . 
Albany is one of  western Australia's oldest towns . Well worth the visit . Also has a whaling station thats now a museum.  
If you see a red sign with the letter i .. this means a information bay and will have places of interest marked on a map . Plenty of them in west oz and you'll come across many on your travels.   

Welcome to the forum
