So next day we wanted to see some more of Esperance. Went by the tourist info and got to know there is a scenic drive called the Great Ocean Drive…
So off we went. First stop I met Sammy the Seal!
Cute little (BIG!) thing!
Many stops where just different beaches. 7 mile beach, 11 mile beach etc etc. But some differed with different rock formations.
One person ran off with my clothes of course..but there is always a solution
Last stop was a(nother for me) dry lake. Pink lake (no not really pink anymore)
Not the best pic…but just before we left Esperance we had lunch. We chose the worst spot because it smelled bad…
And then we took off to the big mining town – Kalgoorlie-Boulder!
I was co-driver halway and then we swopped
And here is our camping ground the following two nights
Next day we went to:
The Superpit gold mine lookout. It is the biggest pit (digging whole) in Australia. They are all gold diggers here!
Facts: ca 3.5 kilometres long, 1.5 kilometres wide and 570 metres deep!
Close up from the bottom so you can estimate yourselves:
Machinery used on site
Then a visit to their museum
Laugh as hard as you want, my hair is still prettier than yours 😉
Had lunch just right there..in the middle of town
Went to another little Aussie museum
Inside the vault there was goooold, in many shapes and sizes
This hotel was once upon a time the narrowest hotel in the world…but not anymore! Ha!
A visit to the oldest profession on earth, the Brothel tour in the pink house
The madam held the tour. She talked to us for about 1h or so and showed us almost every room. She was very comfortable telling us and showing us how this massive dildo was used on the customers. She made very clear to us that it has never been used on any of the girls…the customers requested it…
Another room..can you guess the theme?
Well enough now, though I must say it was very interesting. Now time for a little pub crawl. Of course this is a mining town so there are lots of men…in there working clothes
And these are “the neons” that everyone aaaall over this country wears! Just look behind R.
And since there are loooots of men…there are skimpys here too. She was walking around with her jug to be filled if people wanted her to take more clothes off..
We thought we would go back, eat something and then go back to town for more drinks….
I must’ve been tired or something because man I was such a cheap date this night! After 1,5 beers….I was tipsy! Since one of the very male guys in our crew was breaking stuff constantly, we only had 3 chairs that worked to sit on, the 4th was risky. And since I have got an awesome mattress I just used that 🙂
Goodnight for now!
Let’s see where we’re off to next!
