Hamelin Bay and Augusta

Heading south towards the furthest south westerly part of Australia (Augusta) we camp at Hamelin Bay, using it as a base to head to Augusta where we found 2 interesting facts. 1 – we were actually physically closer to the South Pole than we were to our home in Pelican Waters, and 2 – we could stand with one foot in the Indian Ocean and the other foot in the Southern Ocean (if it wasn’t so cold !). Augusta is the nearest town to Cape Leeuwin, on the furthest southwest corner of the Australian continent.
