I sleep so deeply at Quaalup. I keep coming back here and will continue to do so. June was my third visit to Quaalup. This time with a friend and my son. We saw the whales at Point Anne....amazing. I was concerned we would be cold at that time of year, but Karin and Carsten have put heaters in the accomodation now....and that made it cosy.
The first time I visited, a couple of years ago, I stayed in a double unit near the Homestead with my partner. I had such a good time then, that next, I brought my father (who was visting from England) to Quaalup, in January. My kids came too..."wait till you see this place...its amazing...there are plants, and birds, and creatures..you dont see anywhere else...and theres this emu, she'll go on walks with you..." ..I told them. The kids weren't that keen but my Dad was, he loves nature. So we drove to Quaalup.. dust flying over the corrugates. We stayed in the chalet that time. At one point after we'd unpacked and shaken the road off us, the sun was just going down..we stood on the patio area and we were all completly silent ( even the boys, who'd been bickering and moaning all afternoon) transfixed...it was as if we'd just woken up to the life in th bush all around us. Edna (the emu) was strutting nearby, several kangaroos and their joeys were foraging through the pig-face that rambled across the ground in front of the chalet. A handful of black cockatoos flew and screeched overhead...something rustled in the scrub. All sorts of bird calls surrounded us....We all got goosebumps. It was a magic moment....Quaalup is full of them and I just love bringing my family and friends here to experience it.
We got a 'flat' I suspect due to the extreme corrugates in January and couldn't get the wheel nuts undone, but Karsten came to the rescue! The road is MUCH better now.
