Eighty Mile Beach
Eighty Mile Beach is situated almost halfway between Broome and Port Hedland. The beach is a paradise of pristine coastline. It is perfect for walking, fishing, fossicking for shells or just sitting back and enjoying the magnificent sunset.
The area is also a listed wetland and feeding ground for migratory birds. The beach supports about half a million of these waders, comprising over 20 different species. Each year these shorebirds arrive in northern Australia from their feeding and breeding grounds in the Arctic Circle. By the time they arrive here, they have travelled between 10,000 and 15,000 kilometres.
Eighty Mile Beach is a rich food source for the birds. The continuity of these birds depends on their successful feeding, resting and breeding, and Eighty Mile Beach is a crucial part of their life cycle. Eighty Mile Beach has a caravan park offering camping, caravan and cabin accommodation.
