Not bad road walk on the beach with the air around 32 degrees Celsius, it's been since prolonged thirst. But because we are getting used to, if it had been planned, should not be postponed, just because of scorching heat or heavy rains.

What is the heat of 32-34 degrees Celsius, compared, when we were for hours in the Pinnacles Desert, which is a 4 -5 hour drive from downtown. If it's to the Mamion Marine, the car is not so long it feels. Especially while driving to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

The Marmion Marine Park is a protected area along and off the north coast of Perth, Western Australia and since 1987, declared the first Marine Park in Western Australia. According to the information that can be read on the inscription here, the extent reaches more than 10 thousand hectares.

paved walkways smooth
declining stairs, down to the beach sand
children play facilities
free drinking water
changing rooms
clean toilets and clean '
no garbage scattered
beautifully cut grass

Our nature is beautiful, but alas, we do not never want to learn, how to sell the beauty of it, to be an attraction for foreign tourists.

Saling Sapa, Fellow Visitors

Where there is a bench to sit, so for those who do not like sitting lesehan in rerumputn, can take advantage of this facility.

Almost half of our daily trawling this beach, no one seems to throw garbage. Everyone who brings food and drink, always carry the garbage office, so as not to scatter.
