Day two: Busselton

Today’s plans were to go snorkelling and explore a cave!

The drive from our campsite to Busselton Jetty was about 10 minutes. We brought our own snorkels and fins so we could dive straight in and start exploring. We soon found out the best snorkelling was way out at the end of the jetty which is a 1.8km walk – but well worth it. Dive and snorkel equipment is available for hire and the designated swim spot here is supervised by staff. So many little fishies to see and we even spotted a sting ray!

We wanted to capture our underwater adventures so Denver used his Go Pro and I took a risk with my new Lifeproof (apparently waterproof) Iphone case. Both worked a treat underwater and now we have some amazing snaps to share.

On to Ngilgi Cave, in Yallingup, 20 minutes from the campsite. We bought entry to all four caves to make it a bit cheaper ($67). This tour starts with a guide for the first 10 minutes and then you a free to explore the cave for yourself taking about an hour in total. There are lots of steps and we were constantly ducking our heads under rocks so be ready for a bit of physical activity. Apparently the depth we hiked was equivalent to a twelve story building. The sights inside were beautiful. I’m excited to see the next few caves.
