Cape Range Beach, Exmouth

Sandy Bay Beach, Exmouth

In part four of my series of Australian Beaches I am taking you to the most remote and untamed coastline of North West Australia. This includes places along the coastline such as the Turquoise Coast, the Pilbara, Shark Bay, Coral Coast, Ningaloo Reef, Eighty Mile Beach and the Dampier Peninsula.

Some of these beaches are only reachable by travelling many kilometres over rough dirt roads and others are just off the Great Northern Highway. Although the beaches in the south of West Australia were spectacular I found the North West to be equally as stunning.

The beaches of the far north of West Australia unfolded before me like a Hollywood cliff-hanger movie. Their beauty both captivated and enthralled me. I literally could not stop the shutter button clicking on my camera!

    Cable Beach at sunset. Dreamy. After driving the distance back to North Queensland from the Gold Coast I have a new admiration for you and your mammoth effort Kathy :)

      Cable Beach was a highlight of the trip – trekking down the beach at sunset on a camel and strolling along only to discover we were on a nudist beach! It was a mammoth effort but I have so many wonderful memories and photos that I will cherish for the rest of my life. :)

    my gosh Cathy, Western Australia I am sure has the most beautiful beaches in Australia. Look at that water, that sand, and that blue sky! and hardly any people!
    As they say “life is a beach in WA”. WIshing you happy travels in 2015 Cathy, and thank you for your support and for stopping by my blog this week. One day we might even meet!

      Although where I live in Queensland and just over the border in NSW have some of the most beautiful beaches, I must agree that Western Australian did trump our beaches. I think the remoteness and the contrast in colours is what did it as you said.
      Thank you Jill also for your support during 2014.I’m not sure when will be heading west again, but maybe you are coming east? Would love to meet you! :)

    What I love about Aussie beaches is that the sky is equally as stunning as the ocean. Your first shot is a real study of blues and then when you throw in the red rocks of Barnhill Station it takes it to another level.

      The colours are remarkable Jan and I think that is what I like about photographing beach scenes. Barnhill Station was a wonderland of different hues – I took hundreds of photos there! The scenery everywhere was spectacular.

    What a wonderful collection of beaches! Australia certainly has some of the most picturesque beaches around. The Exmouth Beach photos are particularly inviting. Happy new year!

      Thank you Mary. The beaches near Exmouth were particularly picturesque. The contrast in colours was amazing against the red earth. Happy New Year to you too! :)

      Thank you Jarek. I would have to say the same about your magnificent photos on your website. You would be in your element photographing some of the breathtaking scenery here in Australia. Thanks for visiting my blog.

    So many old favourites – but also new ones to see! A traveller once told me there was enough to see in WA to fill the next 10 years of travel! I think he might be right!

      I’m glad I produced some new beaches for you to look at. The contrast of colours between the earth, sea and sky makes the North West truly spectacular. I think that wise traveller is correct – 10 years might be just enough time to really discover what WA has to offer. It is colossal!
