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.

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.

Why Wouldn’t You?

 

Its time for the annual holiday that gathers friends and families together at a beachside location around 3 hours from home. For around 15 years we’ve been making this trek after every Christmas to totally relax, renew friendships with families we only see here once a year, and gather our own extended family to enjoy this setting.

Brighton Caravan Park South Australia

We were invited to an impromptu weekend away with friends at Brighton Caravan Park in South Australia which strangely enough we had never set foot in before and in fact didn’t even know of its exact location. This is despite it being only 17 kilometres from Adelaide and pretty much in the neck of woods that I grew up in as a child.  Perhaps that’s exactly why I’d never considered staying there, you think you know all there is to know about an area sometimes, but just like us, places change as they mature.
