Would like to share some pics from my summer cruise around two nice areas of the South coast of Western Australia. We spent Jan-Mar cruising the harbours inlets and rivers of this pristine area. Albany and Walpole.

1. just slipped and ready to roam Albany
2. cool weather but a nice cuppa helps
3. Whaling was carried out here till late 70's
4. Kalgan River - lunchtime
5. Spent a lot of our time anchored around these bays of Albany
6. The beautiful Franklin River - Walpole
7.Beginning of entrance to Walpole inlet
8. Close to mouth of Nornalup/Walpole inlet and Southern Ocean
9. That white speck is Nimiane anchored in the channel just inside the inlet

Welcome to TF and thanks for sharing the pics with us. It's always nice to see photos of where people use their boats and them having fun aboard.


Thanks for taking us along.

bogranjac1,
What a beautiful place you hail from! Love your pics. Judging from the pics you'd probably benefit from a canoe. Looks like you eat well and boat well. What else is there?

Mike, bogranjac1 has been around for some time .. not new at all. To your credit though can't miss w a welcome.

Nice area for sure. We used to dive a lot at Denmark, or Torbay to be specific. Very clear water - used to be able to dive to 100' and then look up to see the hull of the boat, and also up the cliffs above water for a bit.
