The long drive over the Road From Hell (see previous post…) ended in Broome, Western Australia, on the Indian Ocean. One of our goals was to see the Indian Ocean and tour the coastline.
It’s almost 1,500 miles on the coastal route from Broome to Perth, about 100 miles further then driving I-5 from Canada to Mexico. We visited Port Hedland, Dampier, Exmouth, and Denham/Monkey Mia. Some are industrial towns; others, tourism is their industry. Remember all that red rock and soil? This part of Australia is rich in iron ore which is shipped to regional countries like India and China.
We visited beaches that were all shells without sand and beautiful sand beaches too.
