- Beach / Seaside Resort
- Culture (paddy field, coffee, tea ...)
To tell the truth, I stopped in Carnarvon to stock up on provisions and then continue on towardsExmouth. However, I did have the time (and the good fortune) to see a couple of kangaroos and a few emus right in the middle of the town. Good job I had my camera handy!
Australia is an expensive country for us tourists who don't have the same level of income as the Australians. If you get away from the town centre, you're sure to find loads of farms offering cheap fruit and veg. The mangoes are legendary. Don't be afraid to ask, the owners love showing visitors around their farms. Like a lot of places in Australia, there are free electric barbecues available for anyone to use. It's a useful and great way to cook up a few sausages in the shade of one of the town's many palm trees...watch out for the seagulls though, look away for a second and they'll pinch your sausage and fly off with it in their beaks!
Lots of Indigenous Australians live in Carnarvon. Don't be surprised if you find their behaviour different to ours. We don't have the same background or education and naturally our ideas of good manners and getting along together, are different. Don't stare at them and don't take their photograph or you may run into problems.
