Caravanning in Adelaide City

4 Comments

If you’re looking for a staycation in Adelaide or a caravan park as close to the city as you can get, look no further than the Adelaide Showgrounds Caravan Park.

You’ll find this park on Goodwood Road at Wayville, with the entry on Leader Street, and checking in couldn’t be made any easier. When you book online or by phone you are emailed all the details soon afterwards and everything is simply explained.

Whats New Whyalla?

4 Comments

The last stop on our Eyre Peninsula road trip was the town of Whyalla. In the past, my impression of Whyalla was one of a hot dry and dusty town, where all you noticed was the massive steelworks that the town revolves around.

The steelworks still is the biggest industry in town but there is more going for Whyalla than in the past including some terrific art, a beautiful foreshore and beach area and one amazing jetty.

Cowell – An Eyre Peninsula Town to Watch

7 Comments

The town of Cowell on Eyre Peninsula is an interesting one, it has a lot of interesting aspects going for it at the moment but will be one to watch in the next few years, as millions of dollars are being spent in upgrading its foreshore area.

The grants for the project have come from Federal and State Governments as well as the local council and will see the building of a new tourist centre featuring a demonstration of an oyster hatchery, a market shed multi-purpose community space, commercial buildings for a food hall, a marina, water playground and 25 metre free swimming pool for public use.

Tumby Bay ~ So Nice, We Visited Twice

6 Comments

On our tour around Eyre Peninsula we took a detour to make sure we didn’t miss illuminate Tumby, before resuming our itinerary back on the other side of the peninsula’s coast.

Tumby Bay had so much going for it that we were definitely stopping in again on our way back, to see more of what this town has to offer. The best place to start, is with the drive into town, making sure you pull in to the parking area near the town’s painted silos.

Coffin Bay ~Roos and Views

6 Comments

Coffin Bay is one stop on Eyre Peninsula not to miss and even though it is surrounded with National Park, which is one of the drawcards for visiting, you can still have some great experiences while travelling with your dog.

The caravan park is on the foreshore and has lovely views over the bay. It is close enough to town to be able to walk everywhere and the park is dog friendly. Throughout the town and caravan park you’ll have kangaroos and emus wandering through, so make sure your dog is on a leash at all times.

I’m Your Venus Bay South Australia

5 Comments

The goddess of love herself would love this place I think, our Newest, new favourite place to stay on Eyre Peninsula.  Just when we think we’ve found the one, another idyllic location grabs us and tempts us to stay longer.

Venus Bay is another beauty and the caravan park is in perfect position, sitting on the sheltered bay. The lovely managers were only too happy to give us ‘the best spot in the park’. OK they probably say that to everyone but we think we did pretty well. We parked parallel to the beach with a track onto the sand right next to us.
