Late afternoon, late October, southwestermost WA.

All pictures taken on a very short walk from Wrenwood Chalets, a few minutes drive from Augusta, and half an hour’s drive from Margaret River.

 

Conveniently nearby are wonderfully wild bays and capes, whales, karri forests, superb coastal heath, some of Australia’s finest wineries, and eateries galore – with and without hauteur/pretence.

Nicely unspoilt, Augusta is a little town on an inlet, just minutes from Australia’s “left hand corner”.

Larger, much more famous, very-spoilt, glitzed-up, but nonetheless-likeable is the town/magnet that some call “Margs“.

At least as enjoyable as any/all of the above is the lovely, shaggy, uniquely West Australian bush that surrounds Wrenwood Cottages.
