Just as we hit the Nullabor that we received an email to say that my great, great uncle, Cyril, was being recognised in a sunset ceremony in Kings Park in Perth on the eve of ANZAC Day.
Having the deadline meant we'd have to either miss the south west of Western Australia or do the whirlwind tour. We opted for the latter and after Northam we headed south to Esperance.
There's a great free camp ($5/n) at an olive grove a few minutes out of Esperance. We stayed the night before making our way to one of the most beautiful free camps we've come across in the four months we've been on the road. The riverside free camp at Pallinup, where we nestled the van in a site on the southern side of the road was a magic place in the afternoon and a magic spot to wake up.
