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.

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.
