Recounting the adventure, he wrote the following: In 2017 it was scientifically tested as having the whitest sand in Australia, possibly the World, knocking Hyams Beach NSW off its perch.

Lucky Bay Reviews
We enjoyed our drive out to Lucky Bay, we were privileged to see and pat the kangaroos while there. We loved our coffee and snack too. more »
Eine der schönsten, attraktivsten Buchten in der ganzen Gegend. Mit Campingplatz und Toiletten. Der Höhepunkt sind die Känguruhs, falls sie sich blicken lassen. more »One of the most beautiful, attractive bays in the whole area. With campsite and toilets. The highlight is the kangaroos, in case they let themselves be looked at.
This place was beautiful, very touristy, but the location was gorgeous. The water stunning. And it not every day you see kangaroos chilling out on the beach. Plus the coffee is good!
Hands down the best beach I have ever visited. Went here twice and both times we cuddled with the kangaroos that seem to always be there. You will have to pay 13 dollars to enter the national park, which I find to pay happily since the money goes to protect and maintain the park.
