Israelite Bay

aloes

About two hours’ drive from where we live, is an amazing, wild place called Israelite Bay. Brilliant fishing, very isolated (No shops, takeaways and definitely no mobile range!). It drips with history.
 
The old telegraph station that was used as the main point of contact in the late 1800s and early 1900s and the stonework in the magnificant old building is amazing, when you consider that it was opened in December of 1876.
 
These Aloe Vera usually only flower when they’re 100 years old… so you know how old they are!
 
The fishing is awesome out here (now I’m probably letting all of Esperance’s secrets out!). Pink snapper, gummy sharks and even bronze whaler sharks are caught with regularity. Many ‘Esperanites’ spend a lot of their summer holidays here.
