Dundee Beach – Darwin Trip Part 1 of 2
One of Darwin’s best-kept secrets, Dundee Beach. This week on Campr Deano shows you around this special destination and all it has to offer. Where to stay, what to catch and how to cook it! Owie, the unofficial Mayor of Dundee takes us around town to show us all the top attractions. First stop, the local airport. Unfortunately, there were no A380’s or 747’s insight, however, we did manage hit the runway and catch some air of our own.
Second stop, the infamous Dundee Beach, where Owie and I take a cruise along to one of the secluded beach fronts. With the freedom to cruise along the beaches, 9 times out of 10 you’ll be the only one on the beach. These secluded beaches are a scenic beauty with clear waters, rocky terrain and warm breezes. You’ll definitely want to pack up your city life and escape once you’ve seen this view.
