Lakeside reflections by day, moonlight by night
By Veronica Royle

Our tree-lined limestone drive takes you from the gravel road towards the Sandy Lake Farm B&B. Take the time to grab your camera to take some special shots as the sun colours the dappled tree bark. Or perhaps catch the farm scene of grazing black and white belted Galloway cattle and calves or the Dorper sheep and baby lambs. A little further to go and you'll find the house sitting on the rise amongst rolling green lawns, roses and gum trees. Reg and Veronica look forward to your arrival and have your choice of rooms ready. If you just want peace and quiet, this is ideal but if you would like some entertainment or to have a go at karoake just mention it to Reg and he'll get you a song or two to try. Sunset and BYO drinks on the patio... bring out the camera again and capture the set... Read more

Guilderton, where the river meets the sea.
By thea wale

A day at Moore River Cottage... Woken by the birds going about their morning business, my family start their day on the front verandah, sipping a warm drink and watching the waves roll in, dreaming of what to do today. Kayaking, picnic and the sandhills are the favourite option for this day and t the kayaks are included in the tariff. Breakfast done, picnic packed and down to the river we go, the whole family, and with a slight breeze on our backs, we paddle to the sandhills, 'the desert' as they are affectionately called by the locals. Sandboard under arm up we climb to the top, then slide down, having a competion to see who can get to the water and cross the river, then back up to the top again. While the teenagers are sandboarding the little ones are rolling down, over and over and... Read more

Green Head
By Kylie Jane Degeling

Sometimes, the name of a place does not do it justice. For example, when a person hears ‘Green Head’ do they immediately conjure up images of wildflowers, beaches, and sea lions? Are they likely to imagine surfing, bush walking and snorkelling? Probably not. But one small area of Green Head that does have a worthy name is ‘Dynamite Bay’. Perhaps this would be a better name for this gorgeous town on the Coral Coast of Western Australia because Green Head really is a dynamite place to visit.   Only a short drive from such wonders as The Pinnacles, and with local reefs perfect for snorkelling and diving, as well as an abundance of delicious fresh seafood like rock lobsters waiting in the ocean, Green Head truly is paradise. There is so much for water enthusiasts... Read more

By Kylie Jane Degeling

If you travel 450km north of Perth, you’ll encounter an historic town nestled on the coast with loads to see and do as well as yummy treats to eat. For example, the rock lobster – famous in this region – is fresh and tasty, especially when accompanied by a wine from the local vineyards. The beaches beckon swimmers and surfers alike, and the islands off the coast are heaven for marine life enthusiasts. History buffs will be enthralled by stories of shipwrecks and a mutiny, and anyone preferring the simple life of relaxing in an oceanfront cottage will never want to leave. Things to do: The Houtman Abrolhos Islands: This archipelago of 122 islands is located 70km off the main coast. Put simply, these islands are a dream for anyone who enjoys snorkelling or scuba diving,... Read more
