Hello, and my best windy wishes to all for this coming year!!
It's in projecting phase for now (plane tickets booked but not paid, waiting for vacation agreement), but we (couple with 2 kids, 6 and 2 years old) are looking into a 9-10 days road-trip along the coast of Western Australia, from Perth to Exmouth, and back...
So the goal is to spend some time with the kids and provide them (and ourselves for the 1st time) with a motorhome vacation experience, and when possible park on the coast where one of us could go kitesurfing while the other looks after the kids near the spot...
THAT would be the ideal picture. But I guess there are not so many places along the WA coast with these features.
Another thing: if there were a kiteschool nearby, that would be great: wife is independant, but would certainly need some supervision.
And, kite spots would ideally be not too choppy, and shark-free (well, don't mind the black tips kind, but if we could avoid areas where Great White, bull of tiger sharks are spotted, I guess it would be for the best)
So, do you know of any place that would fill these criteria?
Done a bit of homework, and came up with the following road-map:
- Coronation Beach
- Shark Bay Peninsula
- Sandy bay
I have to admit I have be greatly inspired (okay, copied) by the info on this link:

If would be 9 days of travel (need 4 days in Perth to visit and acclimate I guess), and unfortunately, it appears that it has to be a round-trip from/to Perth, as one-way hire fees are so damn high. Does it seem possible, with enough time for us to enjoy each stop for 2 days?
Do you think we would need a motorhome with shower + toilet, or do you know of caravan parks right on the spots?
Thanks in advance.
Although it's been said that Exmouth is not too be missed, it looks like it will be too far away and too hot in Mid-March...
Was under the impression that South of Perth offered only sharky waves kitespots, but now if you could point me to some good shallow kitespots good for beginners (for the wife: I like waves myself, but not a big fan of the men in grey suit either), I'm all ears if this can be found in the south.
Motorhome has already been booked for 12 days in mid-March, and so are accommodations in Perth, but no fixed route yet, thinking of going South first maybe and then North to catch end of Seabreeze season, or maybe the other way around depending on forecasts...
Big thank you to those who already have me some pointers, can't have enough of them though
