Turquoise Sunset Coast

Western Australia is known for its rugged untouched coastline and its turquoise beaches. The Sunset Coast is one of a kind in the fact that each beach looks slightly different with water of different shades of turquoise. Hotels do not line the beaches as they do in much of Queensland and Eastern Australia. As soon as I arrived in Perth, the first thing I wanted to do was explore the beaches on the West Coast. For me, the beaches tell it all. Here is what I found:

Scarbourgh Beach-
Sunset Coast, Australia

Cottesole-
Sunset Coast, Australia
Mullaloo-
Sunset Coast, Australia
Redgate Beach-
Sunset Coast, Australia
Gnarabub-
Sunset Coast, Australia
Surfers Point & Southside-
Sunset Coast, Australia
Rivermouth-
Sunset Coast, Australia
Conto Beach
(apparently we were swimming when there was a big shark in the area)-
Sunset Coast, Australia
Hamelin Bay (where we saw dolphins)-
Sunset Coast, Australia
Eagle Bay-
Sunset Coast, Australia
Meelup Bay-
Sunset Coast, Australia
Now that I have been in both Eastern Australia and Western Australia, I am hard pressed to pick where my favorite beaches are! The East or the West? You decide!

    • Me too! I can’t wait to go back again and see some more. Unfortunately, I am now in South East Australia. I’ll have to save that for my next trip. Have you written about it?

    • I flew from Cairns to Perth and then I flew from Perth to Melbourne. I got some really great deals on flights (cheaper than bus tickets).
      Yes, I saw the amazing Fairy Penguins in St Kilda and on Phillip Island. Stay tuned for posts about that.

    • Thank you so much for the comment. It’s interesting to understand the perspective from someone looking in. Being in it, I forget sometimes how much I have seen and get an intense burning to see more. When in reality, I’m doing just fine and can slow down to smell the roses so to speak. It’s been a wonderful journey.
