Cape Howe News:
Mid Spring and there's a buzz in the air.
Our favourite time of the year is here in full bloom. Bees and birds are buzzing around and there's that freshness that comes from bloomin marvellous "Mother Nature" doing her thing. Wildflowers abound, the little blue fellas (Splendid Fairy Wrens) are in full mating colour bouncing around in the gardens and bush trying to attract those precocious females.
Days are warming up, sunny and bright but nights still have that gorgeous slight chill in the air making it perfect to snuggle up with someone you love. Sensational walking weather to just get out and about, breathe deep and revive.

It's the way holidays used to be.
Don't miss the Field of Light - Avenue of Honour .
A Glowing Success So Far
It has been an incredible opening to the Field of Light Avenue of Honour in Albany. The art installation by UK artist, Bruce Munroe pays homage to the ANZAC spirit through a mesmerising lightscape.
The immersive art installation has received international recognition for the dazzling display, including media coverage in Lonely Planet, Australian Traveller, The New Zealand Herald, The Australian, and even making the front page of the Telegraph in the UK.
It’s Albany’s moment to shine with one of the biggest outdoor art installations WA’s South West has ever seen, making The Field of Light one of Australia’s ‘must sees’ for every traveller. The stunning installation will glow in Albany, from 4 October until Anzac Day on 25 April 2019, marking the site where 41,000 troops departed Australia for WWI highlighting Albany region’s unique sense of place and identity in the Anzac story.
The Field of Light: Avenue of Honour is a free public attraction.

No Place Like Home
After 10 months travelling Australia in our caravan, we returned to the helm in September. We travelled 33,300 kms through every state and territory (yes, we even took the caravan over to Tasmania on the ferry). We saw a lot of wonderful things, experienced a lot of beautiful places, met a lot of sensational people, ate, drank and indulged in the fabulous local produce . We've climbed mountains, forded streams and found our dream. After 300 days on the road we've decided that there is no better place than home! Lowlands Beach - we're here to stay!!! Love the quietness, stillness, calmness, fresh air, no traffic lights for 400kms, ahhhhh the serenity. We'd love you to come and experience it for yourself. Come share our paradise.
