Many a beachside town in Australia may claim to have the whitest beaches in the country but only one beach can claim that title. Lucky Bay near Esperance is the current title holder (click to read article), and much to the disappointment of Queenslanders.
When I visited Lucky Bay I met some 'unlucky', most probably silly, jet-skiers who didn't know much about the dangers of backing into the surf. YAY for the ever vigilant and helpful Esperance fire brigade. I wonder if they gave the fireman a donation, after all, a tow would have been a lot cheaper than a new van.
