Remote, untouched and pure, the town of Esperance has a coastline that would rival any in the world. Fine quartz sands edged by tumbles of rounded boulders meet placid ocean and endless islands. Esperance is also the closest town to the beach of Lucky Bay, where kangaroos regularly come to sunbake on its white sand.
HOW TO GET THERE
Esperance is 714 kilometres (444 miles, about a day's drive) south, or a two hour flight with Virgin Australia from Perth.
