Sunsets are an opportunity to take a breath, reflect upon the day and appreciate your blessings. Over the past year, I’ve travelled far and wide within Western Australia, exploring some of the most remote and breathtaking landscapes.

Wharton Beach takes the cake as my favourite beach because it is so beautiful whatever the weather, and has something for everyone — it’s also another stunning sunset spot.
