80 Mile Beach

In our rush to get to Port Hedland for the fishing trip, we have to miss out on 80 Mile Beach. So we head back north for 4 nights at this iconic beach which lies along the north-west coast of Western Australia about half-way between the towns of Broome and Port Hedland. It is a beach some 220 Kms (140 mi) in length, forming the coastline where the Great Sandy Desert approaches the Indian Ocean. It is one of the most important sites for migratory shorebirds, or waders, in Australia.
