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.

The Point of Free Camping ~ Point Gibbon

3 Comments

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.

Lazing at Lipson Cove

10 Comments

Another free camp of note we stayed at during our Eyre Peninsula trip was Lipson Cove, named after Australia’s first Harbour Master.

Apart from the well laid out and defined camping area, you have a couple of long drop toilets and rubbish bins provided, and one long and lovely white sandy beach for your $10 per night, per site.

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.

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.

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.
