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.

Fish Mad Fowlers and Scott Bay SA

These days, you can experience seeing them from a whale watching cruise or even spot them gliding past the jetty during the months from July to September.

Fishing SA Magazine – Featuring Moonta Bay Yorke Peninsula

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.
