Our next stop was about half way between Port Hedland and Broome, a spot we’d heard about called Eighty Mile Beach. It’s just a short 10km detour off the highway, or so we thought. The road was a bit more corrugated than we expected so slowly we crawled our way in through the red dirt and ruts, not having an off road van, and made it to the oasis at the end of the track.
In the January / February issue of On The Road Magazine this year I had an article on finding street art when you’re on holidays. It’s a great way to get to know a town or city by walking around and finding little back alleys which can sometimes be a treasure trove of artworks.
I’m finding that more and more places in Australia, and a lot of them rural, are really taking to having festivals and events where local artists can show their creativity. They are also doing a great service in covering some unsightly buildings, ablution blocks etc… with colour and humour thrown in.
