    80 Mile Beach

    September 28, 2016 in Australia

    Auf dem Weg von Broome nach Port Hedland gibt es laut Reiseführer schlicht nichts erwähnenswertes außer Natur und den "80 Mile Beach".
    Dem müssen wir zwar zustimmen, aber deswegen sind wir ja auch hier...

    Nach ein paar K's auf einer (wie sollte es auch anders sein) unsealed road erreichten wir besagten Strand. Abgesehen von einer Hand voll anderer Touris genossen wir die abgeschiedene und stille Kulisse. Wir unterbrachen unser Genießen nur um euch hier noch schöne Grüße zukommen zu lassen! (Dauerte ein wenig bis wir so viele schöne Muscheln hatten)Read more

    80 Mile Beach

    July 8, 2017 in Australia

    What a top spot! Stayed 6 nights here with our new friends we met at Barn Hill Station - Robert & Karen from Mackay. It's great to be travelling with someone again even if only for a couple of weeks.

    80 Mile Beach is predominantly a fishing beach with 4WD access and is usually lined with fisherman on the run up to high tide. We all gave it a good go, but caught absolutely nothing. The bloke fishing beside me pulled in a monster 1.2m Threadfin Salmon which lifted our spirits, but it didn't help.

    Victor and Barbara whom we met at Broome were also here. They spend 3 months every year at 80 Mile, as do a lot of retired Perth people. I think they felt sorry for us and gave us some fresh fish fillets which were beautiful. We had afternoon tea together on our last day and I cooked up a damper which we all enjoyed.

    Beautiful weather, although starting to cool down at night. 11-30°

    Eighty Mile Beach and other spots

    June 17, 2017 in Australia

    A couple of days to relax with a rod on this wide, seemingly endless shell beach. The catch of choice up here his King Threadfin Salmon - we both managed a pan size keeper each so won't complain.

    We detoured to Dampier because no way were we going to miss paying our respects to Red Dog at the memorial erected by locals in his memory. A wonderful outback legend that warms the heart...

    We spend two nights at Whim Creek Hotel, a great little pub in the middle of nowhere that comes up it hits own pool, beer garden and cocky/peacock residents. Upmarket pub grub for such an out if the way place too! Sadly during the night the van took on a very definite 'lean' to one side. Confused were we until venturing out in daylight to discover a seriously flat tire. Still, if that's the worst thing to happen on this trip we'll be pretty happy.Read more
