Yardie Ck [W coast of NW cape] is a great place to camp, explore,
birdwatch and close to skindiving opportunities.  Also worth poking
around Kalbarri.

I did see a spinifex bird and a striated grasswren in the Hammersley
Ranges [plenty of interesting scrambling for the youngsters and stay at
camp grounds in Karajini NP].  Millstream-Chichester is worth a visit
and why not pop into Mt Augustus on your way back.  The wildflowers in
the northern wheatbelt are pretty good in late August [pretty good when
Diana memorial magazines hit the stands] The coalseam reserve on the
Irwin River is pretty good.
