Day 5- Denham to Exmouth
We made a stop at Shell Beach, where millions of Coquina Shells have accumulated over time to create this unique shell beach, where in some spots it is estimated that the shells are 10 metres deep.
Because these shells continue to be washed up to shore, they are considered a renewable resource and are therefore mined and used in chicken feed and in making concrete.
The day was spent driving, of course, but also stopping to enjoy the landscapes and features that WA has to offer.
