I’m happy to report that I’ve added another magazine title, to the list of publications that I’ve contributed to. In the April / May edition of Fishing SA magazine, a South Australian sport fishing magazine which features all things fishing, camping, boating and outdoors, you will find my story on fishing at Moonta Bay on Yorke Peninsula. This is one of our favourite fishing destinations for the variety you can catch and because it’s a spot that is very safe for fishing in the tinnie.
It feels good to start a new year with a sense of normality. The usual family holiday, a whole host of caravan park friends but sadly a few of them are missing due to Covid travel restrictions interstate.
The Coorong National Park in South Australia is a park with so much to offer everyone in love with life in the great outdoors. Whether it’s fishing, camping, four wheel beach driving, bird watching, kayaking, fishing, walking, photography or a mix of all of the above, this incredible stretch of beach, dunes, calm waters and wild ocean is one that adventurers need to experience at least once in your lifetime.
The joys of caravanning with friends are many and in the case of meals and happy hour treats the bar seems to get raised higher and higher when we dine together. With a month spent at the beach and fishing as one of the main pastimes, there are plenty of recipes tried and tested from campsite to campsite and lots of willing guinea pigs to try them.
Summer holidays are on the horizon and a lot of holidays are being planned involving heading to the beaches and coast to make the most of long hot days ahead. Many in South Australia will look towards Yorke Peninsula and a relaxing break in any one of the many small towns dotted along the coast. If you do visit the peninsula you should plan a journey to the bottom end, and Innes National Park. Innes is a park filled with breathtaking coastal scenery, picture worthy (instagrammable) roads and tracks throughout, wandering wildlife, eye catching wildflowers, accessible shipwrecks and even…a ghost town.
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.
