Once again I decided to mix a trip with the Australian Van Nationals. This time the Nats were to be held in WA so this was an ideal opertunity to explore more of the West

The preparation
To convert Day-to-Day driving to touring mode.

Home to the Van Nats in Pinjarra
This leg was more of a transit to get to the Nats, no sightseeing or visiting was undertaken.

The Coral Coast
Now the trip realy starts. This leg was north slightly inland from the coastal Highway and included several sections of dirt. The final destination was nigaloo Reef area of north west Western Australia.

Back to the Goldfields
Very few roads in this area so most was done over roads I had done before.

The Great Central Road
This road links Western Australia to Central Australia and passes through both the Gibson and Great Victorian Deserts
