Circumnavigating Australia — The Beaches of Esperance


Esperance Area Beaches

On this day our tour took us to many Esperance area beaches, which we visited while transiting Twilight Beach Road. Some of the beaches we visited this day included names such as Fourth Beach, 2 Mile Beach, Twilight Beach, 9 Mile Beach, 10 Mile Lagoon, 11 Mile Beach, 13 Mile Beach, and other equally originally named areas.

Pounding surf

While the skies were not very cooperative this day, the crashing waves and pounding surf made up for the cloudiness.

The rocky landscape in many of these areas also made fascinating photographic subjects:

We even saw the occasional surfer on our tour:

This next beach scene is reminiscent of an old Western:

Chicago Aermotor Windmill?

Some of the beaches this day were signed, and many were not. Here’s the signage for 11 Mile Beach:
