    Eighty Mile Beach

    August 31, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    After leaving the Fitzroy River area we drove towards Broome, but stayed at the Roebuck Plains Roadhouse Caravan Park which is about 30ks out. Very nice small park with a Tavern attached to the Roadhouse. Caught up with the washing - sheets, towels, mattress protector, floor mats and clothes. Ha. A mad cleaning fit. 😊
    An afternoon swim in the pool. Dinner in the tavern was a Fishermans Basket each. Huge meals at good prices. It felt almost 5 star after bush camping for the last couple of weeks. A trip into Broome the following morning to shop for food, drinks, fuel and a haircut for me.

    From there we drove to 80 Mile Beach. There is a fabulous caravan park here, however no dogs allowed, so we camped up the rd in a spot where others were doing the same. The beach is beautiful, long sweeping views of white beach and blue water. No seaweed at all. Lots of people tho, driving on the beach, fishing, walking and collecting shells. We only saw a couple of people swimming, possibly because of sharks, and box jellyfish stingers. I wont be going in to find out. 🦈😏
