200 km to the east of Esperance (the last 100 km is restricted to 4WD vehicles and there are no facilities), is Israelite Bay where the ruins of the Israelite Bay Telegraph Station, which operated from 1877-1927, can be seen. The original building was constructed of timber. It was replaced by a stone building in 1896. The complex includes the ruins of a cottage built in 1884 and two graveyards where telegraph operators and others who lived in the area are buried. Although very inaccessible Israelite Bay offers both good fishing and good swimming. The road passes through the Cape Arid National Park.   My first trip to Israelite Day was in November 1988 in my first 4WD [1980 Toyota Landcruiser FJ45 Personnel Carrier].  Since then I have visited the area many times.  There are a few camping spots around Point Malcolm & Israelite Bay itself, although sheltered areas from the elements are few & far between. The weather conditions can be overcast & windy  depending on the time of year.  Fresh water can be found behind the sand dunes at Point Malcolm & further east of Israelite Bay at Wattle Camp just south west of the Bilbunya Sand Dunes.
