Cleaning Up Our Beaches

16 Comments

Like most Australians, many of our holidays are spent by the coast and we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to beautiful beaches and spectacular coastline in Australia. Whether you spend time in the water or simply taking a stroll along the beach it sadly doesn’t take long to find some rubbish.

Point Drummond Eyre Peninsula

8 Comments

On our slow sojourn around Eyre Peninsula we have been deliberately stopping in at every beach and free camp we can find to see and try some for ourselves. Some have been really easy to access on wide dirt roads that have been well maintained and others, well they take a little more effort to get to.

These roads less travelled often lead to some pretty remarkable spots though, and for your effort you are rewarded with uncrowded places to park a van and enjoy the serenity.

The Fishing is On – at Walkers Rock

3 Comments

We were given a tip – if you like free camping and fishing, try Walkers Rock Campground. The turn off is signposted from the Flinders Highway and it is around 12 kilometres from the town of Elliston.

The campground has assorted sheltered sites to suit all size campers and caravans, as well as a new looking, unisex, flushing toilet and cold shower. Sites cost $20 per night (perhaps a bit rich for what you get) and you pay via an honour system at a self registration station as you enter.

Special Streaky Bay

6 Comments

Touring around Eyre Peninsula in South Australia has us thinking each new camping destination is the best. But now I think we’ve really found it, in Streaky Bay. 

Streaky Bay is around 700 kilometres north west of Adelaide, getting its name from explorer Matthew Flinders who noticed the discoloured streaks in the water. The streaks are believed to have been caused by the release of oils from certain seaweeds in the bay.

Caravanning on Perlubie Beach

10 Comments

This is a beach I’ve had on a must visit list for a long time after seeing unbelievable photos of people caravanning on the sand! These caravans weren’t off roaders either, but your average road ready van, so this was something we had to see for ourselves.

Perlubie Beach is a little over 22 kilometres north of Streaky Bay on Eyre Peninsula in South Australia, and its name is an aboriginal word for ‘white sand hill’. The beach itself is a gentle curve of white sand that is around 2 kilometres long and is sheltered by Eba Island.  The sand is quite hard with a few soft areas, so it is easily accessible for caravans and 4WDs.

Fish Mad Fowlers and Scott Bay SA

4 Comments

Strange how things turn out sometimes, take for instance the town of Fowlers Bay on Eyre Peninsula which was once the site of a whaling station and today owes a fair bit of its tourism draw card to these majestic creatures again. These days, you can experience seeing them from a whale watching cruise or even spot them gliding past the jetty during the months from July to September.
