Eighty Mile BeachA remote stretch of undeveloped coastline on the WA north coast and the perfect place to break a journey, a few days here will immerse you in endless sandy beaches, top-class fishing, and birdwatching paradise.
For endless stretches of white sand lapping onto turquoise water and excellent fishing and bird watching, head to aptly named Eighty Mile Beach. Halfway between Broome and Port Hedland, you can see magnificent sunsets over the Indian Ocean and enjoy the glorious solitude of sharing your slice of beach with no one. Famous for fishing, it’s also an important feeding ground for migratory birds, making it an ideal place for bird watching. Each year an astonishing half a million migratory shorebirds descend on Eighty Mile Beach, flying in from their feeding and breeding grounds in the Arctic Circle. Pristine Eighty Mile Beach is a rich food source for around 20 species of waders. Eighty Mile Beach has a caravan park offering camping, caravan and cabin accommodation. You can reach Eighty Mile Beach by driving about two and a half hours north of Port Hedland, or three and a half hours south of Broome.
