Point Gibbon free camp has made it to our favourites list for its location and for the spectacular scenery which included pristine white sand dunes to explore, an easily accessible beach to fish from and visits by large pods of dolphins, swimming by each day.
This is another council maintained camping area with a decent dirt road entrance and plenty of spaces on the cliff top to park a van and be completely secluded for $10 per night. With rubbish bins the only other service provided, you do need to be completely self-contained or use the public toilets in the nearby location of Port Gibbon.
There is a campground on the way to the point but as that is in a bush setting with no water views and still no facilities, we preferred something with 180 degree ocean views.
Why this kind of camping / caravanning appeals to me is the absolute solitude. You can choose to set up your caravan facing whatever view you choose, and having a dog, this type of camping is ideal for him to be able to rest around the campsite and enjoy the beach leash free – as long as like our dog, you have them under effective voice control.
Free camping enables you to enjoy some pretty magnificent sunrises and sunsets and at night there are millions of stars to enjoy.
If all that appeals to you, then Point Gibbon, a little over 23 kilometres south of Cowell on Eyre Peninsula, is one to add to the list.
