Was only going to stay at Edel Land NP for a night but it was that good I had to stay another night! Camping - awesome, Fishing - AWESOME (even with the cheeky tiger sharks stealing my catch) and had a half decent fight with a shark as he took off still hooked on πŸ˜‚ will be coming back here for sure! At least a week staying next time #thisisaustralia #australia #westernaustralia #sharkbay #steeppoint #shelterbay #camping #touring #touringaustralia #backyard #4wd #4x4ing #adventure #living #lifestyle #beach #fishing #sand #ocean #indianocean #landcruiser #80series #gxl #cruising #driving #beachdriving

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!! 2 WHALESHARKS TAGGED OFF DIRK HARTOG ISLAND!!!🐳🦈🍾πŸ₯‚ Over the last 3 days it has been our pleasure to help Brad Norman of Ecocean Whale Shark Research and Conservation successfully tag whalesharks right here in Shark Bay. The tags will provide long term data on the location and behavior of these majestic animals. For this type of cutting edge research to be conducted in Shark Bay is incredibly exciting and I am so proud that Shark Bay Dive & Marine Safaris and Ocean Park Aquarium have played such a significant part. I would like to say a huge thanks to the whole Ecocean team (Brad, Sam, Sonny, Jess and Tricky) for being absolute legends and the easiest crew to work with. Very excited for what the future brings and look forward to working with you all again - watch this space!!! Also a massive thanks to Julian and Jack for their air support from Shark Bay Aviation. And thank you to the Ocean Park/Shark Bay Dive family of Ed Fenny, John Craig, Kat Dodds and Mason Sullivan as Marine Scientists, Dive Instructors and Skippers for volunteering your time and skills to support this truly significant research on sharks in Shark Bay. . . . . . #shark #sharks #sharkbaydive #oceanparkwa #westernaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #australiascoralcoast #discoversharkbay #sharkbay_wa #dirkhartogisland #steeppoint #ecocean #whaleshark

week away fishing with tha boys #steeppoint #spanishmakrel 😁🎣
From ocean to plate within minutes πŸ‘Œ. I'm a eco-conscious Hunter and Gatherer and proud of it 🐟🌱✌️! You gain a huge appreciation for food when you place yourself WITHIN the food chain, not on top of it. Spearfishing is not as easy as 'shooting fish in a barrel', it requires stealth, patience, fitness and an intimate knowledge of the ocean and its inhabitants. This picture holds beautiful memories for me - not only did I witness this stunning sunset after snorkelling amongst vibrant corals and fish life, I provided dinner for my family (taking only what we needed), while camping in our tent at remote Steep Point, Western Australia 😁. You can seee more in our insta stories ~ cheers Rob 😊✌️

A dolphin chasing a 4m tiger shark is a pretty rare site. Just like a Shark Bay glass off in January. We had such an amazing day with grey nurse sharks on our dives but seeing these 2 iconic animals interact was the highlight for sure 🐬❀🦈 . . . . . #dolphin #shark #sharkbay_wa #dirkhartogisland #steeppoint #sharkbaydive #justanotherdayinwa #westernaustralia #australiascoralcoast #amazingwa #tigershark

Steep Point was the perfect place for me to write up my PhD thesis. Peace and quiet but plenty of wildlife around for photography breaks that helped clear my mind. I saw (and heard) these swallows growing up, since the nest was right in front of my bedroom window. I watched the parents feeding them tirelessly, even after the little ones left the nest. I wonder if they made it past that critical time when they are supposed to catch their own food. Who knows... #lovenature #swallows #birdsofinstagram #birds #feeding #photography #wildlife #steeppoint #rangerhouse #edelland #wings #canon #australia #wildlife #wildlifephotography
Bullseye!! A tight knit school of these Common Bullseye fish under a ledge at Kels Rock Steep Point WA. These fish always mesmerise me. They seem to move as one singular organism, even down to the slightest minute movement. Our beautiful oceans never cease to captivate me. #bullseye #fish #snorkel #steeppoint #westernaustralia #northwest #coralcoast #underwater #underwaterphotography #indopacific #school #reef #snorkeling #canon #canong7xmkii #staysalty
One of the big highlights of my trip up North was Luke landing this big Mack!! πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ’ͺ🏽 #steeppointfishing
Tent views are the best views!! There's nothing like waking up to the belly giggles from your babies as dad keeps them happy 'doing the early shift' with our early risers... It's the best start to another day of adventure πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜. We left our van for some remote tent camping in WA, you can read all about our trip out to Steep Point, the most Western Point in Aus ~ Link in bio πŸ‘ŒπŸ€™.
Wanna win the tool kit pictured? The winner will be announced on Intents Unplugged later this month. To enter, just send a photo of your christmas camping setup to me via DM or email them to blog@intentsoffroad.com 😁

Finished off a great year by making some lifetime memories and breaking records with a legendary crew #steeppoint
This what it looks like when a customer asks for a bit of gear to hit the cliffs. Honestly it's not even close to everything you'd need....but you've got to start somewhere. In a blog I'm about to put up on the website I suggest buying a few bits each month before your trip otherwise it can be a very big expense right before you go. #dctackle #spintillyouwin #shorespinningspecialist #clifffishing #quobba #steeppoint #dirkhartogisland #livelylures #skipbaiting #bustedfishing #spanishmackerel #westernaustralia #fishingwa #fishingtrip

So how many of you out there are hitting the steep point cliffs this summer? Do you know that we've got you covered when hitting the cliffs chasing Mackies. From wire to balloons to lures to line. Going in a big group, hit us up for a discount. First time going, get in contact with me and I'll do my very best to help you out with everything you need wether I have it or not. I've been fishing these exact cliffs for 25 years. #dctackle #shorespinningspecialist #spintillyouwin #ballooning #lbgfishing #landbasedfishing #clifffishing #steeppoint #westernaustralia #familyrunbusiness #smallbusiness #onlinetackle #fishing #fishingaustralia

Clark's Anemonefish (Amphiprion clarkii) hiding inside their host anemone from the big scary diver. The relationship between the clown fish and their anemone is mutually beneficial. By living amongst the anemone's stinging tentacles (from which they are uniquely unharmed) the clown fish are protected from potential predators. In return the fish keep their living home clear of debris and defend it from it's predators such as Nudibranchs and Sea Snails. Unfortunately due to the popularity of films such as Finding Nemo, clown fish are being taken from the reefs kn alarming numbers to keep up with demand as aquarium pets. Choose your fish wisely, always buy captive bred fish, better yet grab a snorkel and go for a swim and enjoy these awesome little characters in their natural environment. #clownfish #anemonefish #findingnemo #nemo #anemone #reef #coralreefs #coralreeftank #fishtank #aquarium #reeffish #fish #snorkelling #snorkel #dive #diving #scuba #scubadiving #underwater #underwaterphotography #northwest #australia #westernaustralia #sharkbay #steeppoint #justanotherdayinwa #canon #canong7xmarkii #staysalty #savethefishies
Day 7 - the drive out to Steep Point is not for the faint hearted! The views are beautiful and the water is an amazing colour though. #westernmostpoint #hardcore4x4 #australiascoralcoast #steeppoint #westernmostcoupleinaustralia
One of the most spectacular drives we have done to date on our 14month long trip of Australia. The most turquoise waters, sand dune ranges, great 4wd tracks out to the westernmost point of Australia. The Iveco was in its element. #steeppoint #sharkbay #4wd #4wdaustralia #travelaustralia #wa #ivecodaily #ivecodaily4x4

Steep point, the most westerly point of Australia a nearly 3 hour drive on unsealed road to get there but the views/fishing of 55m cliffs was πŸ™ #steeppoint #northwestaustralia #djispark
We made it to the most westerly point of mainland Australia! It was a pretty long, rough drive here but the views were well worth it.. even if I did get a little motion sickness & then took the wrong travel calm tablets and got super drowsy for the rest of the day 😬 πŸ’€ does anyone have recommendations for non drowsy travel tablets or home remedies? 🐠 p.s how cute is their little visitors book?! It’s hidden away in the rocks so it doesn’t get destroyed by the rough weather there. #monstasurftribe #livepassionatley . . . . . . .
Steep pointβœ”οΈ . The most western point of AUSTRALIA! . This bit of Aus is rough and raw. Gorgeous! The cliff edges are breath taking! . The 4wding, fishing and beer drinking are tops. . : #steeppoint #seewa #explorewa #travelmore #offroadadventures #isuzudmax #aussiebucketlist #takemetoaustralia #roughtracks
We made it!!! We’ve now been to the northernmost (Cape York), easternmost (Byron Bay), southernmost (Wilson’s Prom), and westernmost points of Australia, as well as the lowest (Lake Eyre). Mt Kosciuszko we’re coming for you next!! PS: there’s a new blog post about Ningaloo Reef up over at nickandpam.com #australia #steeppoint #jeeplife #itswindy
πŸŽ£πŸ’§ EDEL LAND NATIONAL PARK (Proposed) - STEEP POINT πŸ’§πŸŽ£ After leaving Francois Peron National Park, we stopped in Denham for 2 nights where we did some washing, shopping and relaxed at a caravan park. Blaine and Pete went squid jigging at the jetty both nights and caught 12 squid πŸ¦‘ We also had a pub feed and visited Monkey Mia 🐬 We then continued on South and had planned to stay at Tamala Station. We obviously didn't do our research properly as Tamala is shut on Sundays and we rocked up to a locked gate πŸ”’ Our only choice was to continue towards Steep Point. It's a long and rough unsealed track (about 140kms) but it is absolutely beautiful and really worth the effort! πŸ‘Œ Because this wasn't our original plan, we hadn't made any campsite bookings and you can't actually book anything at the Ranger Station there πŸ€”πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ So the lady sent us to Steep Point itself to find some phone service and book it ourselves🀳This wasn't too bad an idea as we got to check out the campsites as we went past and suss out what would be best for us. We got to the point, took the token sign pics and booked our site for 5 nights βœ… We went with 'Scavengers' as it was a good spot for putting the boat in and was a nice, level site. The only annoying part being that we it was a minimum 5 people and there was only 4 of us, so we had to pay extra for nobody. Altogether it cost $200 for 5 nights, 4 adults and a ghost πŸ‘» I've seen a heap of photos and read lots about the 4wd track to Steep Point but I barely see/hear about the camping there. It was BEAUTIFUL 😍 The only downfall being the annoying WA wind! But it seems we can't escape it so we may as well embrace it 🀣 We also ruined a tyre going out to Nor 6 - be careful of the sharp rocks! 🎣 The boys did pretty well with fishing - out on the boat and off the point of Shelter Bay. They didn't have a go at balloon fishing but there were plenty of others to watch out there🎈Steep Point is renowned for having some of the best land-based fishing in Australia 🐟 If you're going to make the effort to get out to Steep Point, it's well worth staying for a few nights!! If you're feeling rich..... Continued on our Facebook page βœ”
