Rossiter Bay is just 6 km east from Lucky Bay;
this is another great beach which stretches over 8 km's until it meets Dunn
Dunn-Rocks is the end of Rossiter beach and just on the other
side of the Rocks is another beach which is just short of 10 km’s long.
We also highly recommend traveling to this area via the Esperance to Le Grand NP beach.
Once onto Rossiter beach (accessed via Lucky Bay road) it
gets very soft and low psi is required to avoid sinking into the sand.
the beach all the way until it ends at a rocky point. This exact spot we found
to be the best as it was sheltered by the Dunn rocks, the water was calm and
yet again crystal clear.
Some of us did a bit of fishing here too as the rocks
allowed for further casting. Depending on the wind at the very start of
Rossiter beach could be better as it has a similar wind sheltered area, however
the winds tend to come from the east most of the time.
Getting to Dunn-Rocks beach from here is due north for about
200 meters, finding the correct track across to the beach in a little
maze of tracks may cost you 10 mins (it’s not too bad).
Once at Dunn Rocks it
opens up to yet another beach run, this one is even longer than Rossiter Bay
beach. Along the way is plenty of river streams running out to the ocean and as
you get further along the beach heading east you will pass a few bigger river
Beware in winter as these areas will be wash outs.
The beach continues all the way to a point which was
as far as we went. On the other side of the point is yet another beach.
however, the beach gets very narrow at some areas even during low tide!
There is not much more to say without repeating
quotes from other Esperance beaches as they are really all similar in crystal
clear water, white sand and very long.
If you like the beach Esperance &
surrounding national parks will not disappoint!
