You will not be completely alone in this sandy Australian desert. The Caravan Park is popular among fishers, who stay there for months.
The tides at Eighty Mile Beach are considerable . Make the most of low tide to stroll along this immense beach and to collect shells. It is just before high tide that fishers get their kit out.
The landscape here is both pleasant and astonishing - as flat as could be, there is something disconcerting about its white sand dotted by shells. Further along, the contrast between the tidal creeks and mangroves is more pleasant.
The native fauna of Eighty Mile Beach is unique, unlike anywhere else in the world. Among the species you can spot are flatback turtles, which are only found in northern Australia, dugongs, dolphins and millions of fish and invertebrates.
