Let’s Go Caravan and Camping Australia https://www.letsgocaravanandcamping.com.au/ provides information on holiday parks, destinations, caravans and more, to give Aussies resources to plan a family getaway in the great outdoors. I was thrilled to have the opportunity therefore to take over their Instagram and show a favourite spot in South Australia for not only my family but a lot of locals and visitors alike.
We’ve been regular visitors to Port Elliot and surrounds for well over 20 years but I don’t think I’ve ever been there when there haven’t been changes to see or something different to catch your attention.
Port Elliot is one of those places where you truly feel the day to day drudgery just fall away from the minute you get there. When we stay at the Big 4 Port Elliot Holiday Park we always ask for a foreshore site overlooking Horseshoe Bay. Here you get a panoramic view and smell the clean and bright salty sea and curved sandy beach and every night you go to sleep listening to the crashing waves. It’s only a short stroll from the caravan to the beach and you can swim anywhere along the bay but it does tend to be a bit calmer at the opposite or jetty end of the bay, in front of the Port Elliot Surf Life Saving Club.
It’s an absolute mecca in summer months but in April the number of visitors isn’t so overwhelming but the weather can be pretty perfect. Warm sunny days and still starry nights make you want to get out and explore which is so easy to do on foot, with walking paths in just about every direction and a town centre close enough to stroll to as well.
In taking over the Instagram page I was hoping to show people just what a perfect spot Port Elliot is for the whole family and what keeps me coming back at least once a year.
For starters it only takes a little over an hour from the Adelaide CBD to get here. Every visit it’s a given that with the family and friends we holiday with we will walk around the cliff top or Harbour masters walk. We will look for new places to shop and eat in town, or visit old favourites that keep us coming back every year.
Throughout the year when we hear of something new we will take note to visit when we are down there. And sometimes we will make new discoveries in places we know well.
We visit nearby towns and feel like tourists in our own backyard, taking time to stop and enjoy life just cruising by. Enjoying the passing traffic on the Murray River at Goolwa, and the mix of old and new at Victor Harbor.
In fact all of these towns on the Fleurieu Peninsula have done a great job in preserving their history while keeping up with what visitors want to see and do.
I can’t recommend highly enough that you put this region on your to do list! Check out the Let’s Go Caravan and Camping Instagram page to see more photos and information. If you have any questions on the Port Elliot, Goolwa or Victor Harbor areas I would be happy to answer them for you if I can.
