Day 41 - Friday 15 June 2012

Perth to Margaret River

Woke this morning to a temperature of 8 degrees, but we had a generally clear blue sky. We packed up and hit the road at about 9:30 am. We covered a total of 245 kms today, of which 200 kms was on dual carriageway roads, most of that being freeways. There was no wind and the roads were generally flat so we spent most of the trip in overdrive, which resulted in a good fuel economy of 18.3 litres per 100 kms.

We stopped for a morning coffee in a rest area just north of the Australind turnoff. There was still plenty of evidence of the recent wild weather.

We arrived at the Taunton Farm Holiday Park at 1:00pm and did the full set up as we will be here for 3 to 4 days. Taunton farm is a working dairy farm located about 15 kms north of the Margaret River township.

After setting up camp and having a late lunch we drove into Margaret River to go to the Visitors Centre and pick up papers and a few groceries.
