Let’s Go Caravan and Camping Australia https://www.letsgocaravanandcamping.com.au/ provides information on holiday parks, destinations, caravans and more, to give Aussies resources to plan a family getaway in the great outdoors. I was thrilled to have the opportunity therefore to take over their Instagram and show a favourite spot in South Australia for not only my family but a lot of locals and visitors alike.
I’ve just paid another visit to the fabulous Fleurieu region in South Australia discovering more things to see and do in the restful havens of Goolwa and Port Elliot. So close to Adelaide they are easily visited in a day trip or better still for a quick weekend away, but to really live the lifestyle of the locals stay a few days to unwind, chill and soak it up.
Today my daughter turned 21! A beautiful milestone and a day to be celebrated. So with a party happening soon, I asked my daughter what would she like to do on her actual birthday, just the two of us. But she didn’t answer with go shopping, go out somewhere for lunch or anything terribly indulgent. What she wanted and needed was to jump in the car and head to a favourite family holiday spot, a beach town that we’ve been going to every year since she was born (and before).
Many happy holidays have been spent here, from playing on the swings at the beach to feeding ducks in the local park, riding a tourist train to getting buried in the sand.
You’ll find one of South Australia’s best caravan parks just over 80kms from Adelaide. Port Elliot and the gorgeous Horseshoe Bay are well known to SA locals and it’s a popular place year round. With springs arrival and daylight savings on the horizon there’s no better time to hook on the van and discover what’s on offer in Port Elliot. Here is my list of all-time top 5 things to do when you are holidaying along this spectacular coastline on the Fleurieu Peninsula.
Did you know that whale watching in South Australia is as easy as driving to the right beach and waiting for the whales to come to you? Sounds impossible but it’s true. There are a number of viewing points along the Fleurieu Peninsula coast where you can park and watch whales cruise by. The coastal areas that you are likely to spot whales are off Victor Harbor, Port Elliot and Middleton which are all within an easy hour and a half drive from Adelaide. They also have great caravan parks to stay and while and enjoy the region. Continue reading
On Friday 27, Saturday 28 & Sunday 29 May 2016, the best body boarders will take to the surf at Port Elliot for the Knights Beach Pro. Starting from 8am each day and free for spectators this event is one to put in the diary to watch the fearless bodyboarders compete for ranking on the National Body Boarding Circuit.
This is the third event on the Australian Bodyboarding Association calendar for 2016 and it will be worth the journey down to this part of the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula. The action should be very eventful with the predicted weather, and the spectacular location will no doubt provide great photo opportunities.
A favourite destination of mine, the ocean never disappoints in offering great chances for photos. With waves constantly crashing onto the rocks and pods of dolphins often cruising through the area there is never a dull moment. The clifftop walk is spectacular and there is plenty of seating along the path to take in the views.
