    Western Australia’s coastline between Broome and Exmouth is the most cyclone-prone region in Australia. The tropical cyclone season between November and April can see an average of five tropical cyclones in the area. Two of these will cross the coast and one will be severe.

    10 Must Visit Spots in WA
    We have travelled far and wide to show the kids our great state (and fill their souvenir coin wallet), but I’ll admit we usually camp in regional towns despite the FWD and off-road camper trailer.

    Large Scale vs. Small Scale Maps - What?
    Everybody gets this wrong and it’s not hard to see why. You look at a map, the scale says 1:1,000,000 and you think large number, large area covered - that must be large scale, right? Nope. Our brains like to associate big things with other big things, but brains like doing lots of things they probably shouldn't. What is the...
