Photographs and Adventures

The longer you stay, the more you like it!

We found that the longer we stay at Barn Hill Station, the more we like the lifestyle. It is the perfect place to kick back and relax with a book, take a long walk on the beach, go for a dip in the ocean, explore the amazing rocky cliffs or go fishing off the beach. And every day has the same beautiful, warm, sunny weather typical of winter in the north of Western Australia.

Beach at Barn Hill, looking. You can see the pinnacle rocks in the background.

Peter trying for the big one at Barn Hill. Or he would have settled for the small one. Unfortunately no luck today.

I spotted this hermit crab on the beach one afternoon when I went for a walk to the south end of the beach.

These cheeky Crested Pigeons, with their staring red eyes and Mohawk hairdo, were amusing as they pranced around our camp. There are lots of these at various places up here, they are not at all shy and will even come into the caravan if you leave the door open…ask me how I know that!

  1. Just a quick note, and correction, your Pigeon is not a Partridge, but a Crested Pigeon, Geophaps lophotes, a common bird over much of inland and some coastal Australia. It is one that has benefitted hugely from white man’s activity, especially grain growing…. Cheers, Chris. C. BOWEN Qld.
