Hi Birgit, firstly, reading that the road to the Cape will be sealed is great for the locals, but it's such a fun road to drive, and such a great colour and shape.

Anyway, I just wanted to espouse the delights of Whalesong beach, where I returned to in July last year, getting there via the ungazetted road off the Great Northern Hwy at the Kimberly Coloured Stone building. Still a beautiful and challenging drive and a great 'short cut' if travelling from the east. Definitely not a solo drive as the sand in the northern section is pretty tricky.

I could easily live up at the Peninsula and especially at Whalesong; beautiful, peaceful, remote enough but not isolated, plenty to explore and has the best shower I've come across. Jacinta makes great food and coffee during the dry season and the campsite is second to none, as the photos can attest to. I look forward to getting back there at some stage.

Thank you, Lars. These are beautiful images of a beautiful spot.

I agree about the sandy parts of that road (and warn about them in Destination Kimberley, and of course I also rave about Whalesong :-)).
