Northern Western Australia
Western Australia’s northern beaches also boast their share of seaside wonders. Undoubtedly the most photographed of these beaches is Cable Beach, Broome’s shimmering vision of white sand and marmalade sunsets. After your camel ride, take a 4WD drive along the beach’s 22km shoreline and find your own view of Cable Beach. There’s beauty too at Monkey Mia, although much of its appeal can be attributed to the wild dolphins that visit the shore daily. Turquoise Bay next to Ningaloo Reef is a snorkeler’s paradise while Shell Beach at Shark Bay remains one of the few beaches in the world to be made entirely out of shells. Dotted with seagrass and mangrove-lined bays, Eighty Mile Beach between Port Hedland and Broome attracts shorebirds, scientists and travellers.
