4. Shell Beach

  • Billions of tiny white ‘coquina bivalve‘ sea shells form a 60km long beach aptly named Shell Beach.
  • The deposits are metres deep and extend out into the calm bay – it is great to walk out to sea through the clear waters.
  • Several buildings in Denham and on surrounding stations were built from blocks of the compacted shells.
