This view shows the 400 metre long sandy track (bottom left) leading down from the car park to Salmon Beach which is in the D’Entrecasteaux National Park near Windy Harbour, some 400 kms south of Perth, Western Australia. This is one of only two access points to this 120 kms long beach for conventional drive vehicles. There are two areas where 4WD vehicles can get to it (one of these is over steep sand dunes) plus another place that can only be accessed by a 15 kms cruise down the Donnelly River.
On this day I walked down that track on to the beach and then proceeded to walk right along to those rocks at the far end. I might add that the distance is greater than it looks here! The mighty Southern Ocean was on it’s best behaviour but every few minutes a much larger wave would form and come crashing on to the firm sand and I had to watch that I didn’t get swamped. As can be seen I had it all completely to myself and from leaving the car to returning would have taken me best part of an hour and a half.
