Looking to experience one of Australia’s greatest ever views? Western Australia holds the ticket you’re after…
Where is it?
Esperance, 730km south-east of Perth
How to see it for yourself?
The 15km walking and bike trail commences at Castletown Quay and follows the foreshore through Esperance, taking in the Esplanade, Rotary Lookout, West Beach and Blue Haven and finishing at Twilight Beach. Sections can be accessed from car parks along its length. This view is from the car park at Salmon Beach, about 11km along the trail. There’s a 40km Great Ocean Drive, too, from the Cannery Art Centre along the coast to Observatory Point, Nine Mile beach and Ten Mile Lagoon before looping inland to Pink Lake and the Glass Gallery.
Why I love it
“The path is very popular with tourists and locals. The beaches around here are used regularly for swimming; the walk trail is great for cycling and is also used for triathlons.” – Tahnee Adamson, Esperance Visitor Centre
