But before I reached Perth, I took some photos and found another Big Thing! Firstly the tallest steel lighthouse in Australia … Found in Geraldton. Not found in Geraldton though … The Big Yellow Submarine … Apparently being refurbished!
And the local school has some interesting sculptures, including this one …
Before I arrived in Perth I took a short side trip to the Pinnacles Desert, where there were an amazing amount (in the thousands) of ‘pinnacles’ … Calcite protrusions in a sand desert … Uncovered about 6000 years ago, but the science points to them being buried and uncovered many times over the thousands of years previous … Thought to be calcified tree trunks of an ancient forest.
That’s it … Tomorrow Fremantle for a week, and more exploring of Perth before heading south to Albany etc.
