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.

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.

Illuminate Tumby Bay

3 Comments

If there is one town for art fans to head to on Eyre Peninsula, it has to be Tumby Bay.
In March of every year, since 2018, they hold the Colour Tumby Festival, where street artists decorate and liven up spaces around town, turning them from bare walls into bright works of art.

Tumby has been on my radar for years to visit for this purpose and to make it extra special, this year the town also participated in Illuminate Tumby, part of the illuminate Adelaide festival.

Surf Beaches to Die For on Eyre Peninsula

6 Comments

Not far from Elliston we discover and stay at another ‘free camp’, a council maintained camping area with defined bays for caravans and campers and a single flushing toilet and cold shower.

This is Sheringa Beach, known for great surf fishing, surfing and crisp, clean and white sand dunes. It cost $20 per night to stay, again a bit rich considering the basic facilities here.

Elliston – Sculptures, Art and a Salmon Fishing Competition

8 Comments

The Eyre Peninsula odyssey continues and we settle in Elliston for a couple of nights to see some cliff top sculptures that I’d been dying to see and continue our quest for salmon fishing.

Feeling good about the prospects of catching more, Harry decided to enter the competition, at worst it would be a $10 donation and at best there was prize money to win.

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.
