Indian Ocean Drive

Tonight I'm camped in Lancelin having driven from Jurien Bay on the newest section of the Indian Ocean Drive. This would have to be among the top 10 drives in Australia, it follows the coastline and the landscape is very varied - low heathland rich in flowering plants ...

unbelievably white sand dunes (above and below) ...

acres of towering grass trees ...

and of course Nambung (Pinnacles) National Park with thousands of huge limestone pillars which bring to mind the Chinese terracotta army.
