H. decided to stay in Fremantle because she wanted to explore the city, but my friends from Sydney joined me. We started at 8:30 and passed swiftly through South Fremantle.
Then we came across a derelict power station at North Coogee. TH went for a swim and then we approached the building.
It as covered in graffiti inside and out.
We had to skirt around an old jetty.
More graffiti on the other side:
We arrived at Port Coogee, an expensive new coastal development:
There was a woolworths supermarket enroute, so we bought some lunch and went back to the beach. TH went for a swim.
The we crossed into Woodman Point via a caravan park
There was a popular fishing jetty and a nice park
Then we arrived at a fenced off nature reserve, which had a disused railway track in it and asbestos warnings.
Then we came to a big pleasure boat ramp at the edge of the Australian Maritime Complex.
It was hard to get around.
Then we road bashed it past the dry docks
We arrived at Henderson Cliffs
there was a path to the Naval Base beach shacks
From there onto kwinana beach past some large industrial sites. There were numerous jetties that threatened to block the way.
Then we came to a jetty which really was blocked.
We decided not to go through. Security was getting tighter.
We had to backtrack along the roads.
My friends decided to catch a bus because it was getting late. I continued and found that roads on the map were either blocked or private. It was a long detour.
I arrived, at length, on kwinana beach and walked the final 4.5km to Rockingham. My friends met me at the pub and we ate dinner, and gratefully rested.
