The big news in the Perth region today was the discovery at 7:00 this morning of about 80 beached whales in at Hamelin Bay in the Margaret River area.  This would be about 4 hours south of us, just minutes from the cave we explored in January and about 20 minutes from the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse.

Despite a huge effort to save the whales, over 60 whales have died today.  Read more about it here and see a photo gallery here.
