A couple of days ago we took a detour from the Eyre Highway to visit Fowlers Bay. It was just a 30kms unsealed track down to the shore. On the way there, we saw some beautiful scenery! We also visited the Yalata Homestead Ruins, which were sooo worth the stop and hike up to them.
When we got closer to Fowlers Bay, we were amazed by the sand dunes on the horizon!
The little town had a few cute houses and massive sand dunes just behind those houses! We had lots of fun climbing the dunes and sliding down them! We wished we had taken our sand board with us for this trip, as this would have been the perfect opportunity to use it!
The beauty of standing on top of the sand dune and being able to change our scenery by turning around was incredible. One direction there was the town of Fowlers Bay and the jetty. Another was the beautiful view of the bay. The third way we looked was just sand dunes, making us feel like we were in the middle of a desert, when in fact we were right next to the ocean.
There is a caravan park at Fowlers Bay, but as we are lovers of free camping, we travelled back to a Rest Area at the Eyre Highway instead, which ended up being a peaceful overnight spot at the Cohens Old School Site.
There were small remains of the old school there and the site had reception, which was a bonus!
