Spectacular Stenhouse Bay & Innes National Park

3 Comments

Stenhouse Bay is located in the toe of the boot shaped Yorke Peninsula in South Australia, a little over 3 hours drive from Adelaide. It’s located in Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park which was renamed in late 2020, around the 50th anniversary of its proclamation as a National Park.

It was renamed to signify the start of a new chapter and co-management agreement with the Narungga traditional owners.

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.

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.

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.

Best Whale Watching in South Australia

7 Comments

In Australia we are lucky to have visits from whales as they make their way up from Antarctica to the warmer waters of Australia during winter. There are a number of places along our coastlines where you can see whales and their calves that are born in these warmer and sheltered waters but arguably one of the most spectacular and prolific would have to be the Head of the Bight in South Australia.
