The south coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula is always a popular spot for surfers, from novices to the most experienced, there are beaches to suit all abilities in this region around 80 kilometres from Adelaide. Middleton, Goolwa, Waitpinga and Parsons are magnets depending on the daily conditions that suit the different beaches. The beauty of this part of the coast are the long straight beaches and mostly easy access points to surf spots and lots of car parking.
The carefree fun of caravanning holidays is something that never leaves you, no matter how much older you get it seems. There’s something about eating and living outdoors, especially with a group of friends that have known each other for a long time, which brings out the fun times and the child in everyone.
Just one look at the location of this park on the foreshore is enough to know that this will be a good one! The town of Stansbury on Yorke Peninsula is around a two and a half hour drive from Adelaide and to look at a map they sit almost opposite each other with St Vincent Gulf in between.
One of the most iconic road trips in Australia is the Great Ocean Road in Victoria and September 19th this year marks 100 years from the day that commencement of its construction began. One of the most unique things about this epic drive is that it’s the world’s largest war memorial, built by returned World War 1 servicemen. It’s one of those road trips in Australia that is on everyone’s ‘one day’ list and I finally got around to driving this way in April this year.
When planning a driving holiday in Australia, don’t forget to plan a ‘shot list’ of where and what you want to take photographs of. Even if you don’t publish photos and you’re just doing it for the memories or to create a photobook at home later, having a bit of a plan for the images you would like to get can be a good idea and enable you to get those postcard, or these days, Instagram images.
Sunset is one of my favourite times to take photos especially if there is a west facing beach involved. I love having people or objects silhouetted against fiery skies but sometimes the colours themselves are all you need.
