Rockingham to The Breakaways
Day 1 - We started the day with no gas for cooking. I don't know how, but we had none left. We picked up some bottles and we were on our way. Basically our journey took us to Hyden and then on the dirt highway that is the Hyden - Norseman road. The road is better than 99% of sealed roads in SA. We really didn't see anyone on the road to The Breakaways.
The Breakaways are hidden in a rise and if there was not a sign, you would never know that they were there. We found ourselves a spot next to a picnic table and set up for the evening. The amazing thing was we were the only campers there and the place is beautiful as you can see from the photos below.
If you ever get a chance to visit, I would highly recommend it.
