Feb 18, 2017 - The Eyre Peninsula

15 February A peaceful night, everyone disappeared inside as the mossies came out! Breakfast, shower, pack the car, fold up the tent and we were ready. Checked our, and I told the camp manager how good her site was and were the other Discovery sites as good? She gave me complimentary membership of Discovery (worth $20), result! So, heading south again we left Whyalla and headed towards Port Lincoln at the end of the Eyre Peninsula. The Lincoln Highway headed inland through scrublands, quite attractive really though they did go on and on....

Oz and the Big Lap

Nov 28, 2016 - Walkers Rocks

Ian took himself off fishing after breakfast and came back with a good sized flathead, a whiting and a herring. He had also seen dolphins playing in the water near where he was fishing for a while. After a quick lunch, we drove the 5k or so into Elliston where we had a bit of a drive along the cliff tops as well as have a look around town and buy a few bits and pieces. Elliston waterfront was also affected by the recent storm - the jetty has lost a lot of its decking and is closed to the public. Also, the stairs down to the beach beside the...

Nov 27, 2016 - Streaky Bay to Walkers Rocks- about 5k from Elliston

Not a long drive again today. We drove into the camping area at Walkers Rocks to see if it was a suitable camping site, and well, yes it was! It is another one of those places where you have individual camping spots that are well separated from any other campers. We picked our site because it was tucked in behind the dunes as well as having some shade. Once we set up we took the dogs for a walk to the beach and we discovered we also almost had our own private little beach as well! The track to the beach goes from our camp site to a section...

Today is another short trip Elliston to Streaky Bay its only 127 kms.

Nov 11, 2013 - Laura Bay

After leaving Elliston we called into Streaky Bay and Smokey Bay. On the way we went to see The Marbles. A few unusual granite monoliths in a field. That was a short diversion! Streaky Bay is a very nice town with some nice shops. We had a good look round and walked out on to the pier. It's a lovely spot for carefree summer holidays. Then we drove onto Smokey Bay. This is a very small place but one thing these towns up the West side of the Eyre Peninsula have in common is that they sell fresh oysters. Straight out of the sea. At Smoky Bay...

Nov 10, 2013 - Elliston Beach

We drove into Elliston and looked around. Many towns in South Australia have signs up telling you not to camp in the precincts of the town. We have only stayed two nights in caravan parks since leaving Melbourne. We decided to drive along the cliff headlands where we saw the artwork on top of the cliffs. We found a beach further along. Once again the beach is beautiful. We walked along the beach but one thing we have noticed is that on certain beaches the wind and the sea has brought in mountains of seaweed. It makes you think that some...

Sep 25, 2011 - Elliston

Episode 3 of 5 – Eyre Peninsula Port Lincoln to Elliston Elliston is 2393kms from Dunsborough. The landscape on the drive from Port Lincoln to Elliston was relatively flat and in places very rocky, with the only signs of agricultural activity being sheep farming. We encountered very strong cross winds which made for interesting driving, but fortunately this leg of the trip was only 167kms so was pretty short and the traffic was very light. On arrival in Elliston, we easily found the caravan park (as there are only a couple of dozen roads)...

20th October. We left Streaky Bay heading for Venus Bay which is another lovely seaside spot, where we had morning tea with Sue & Alan then it was on to Elliston, a seaside village surrounded by rugged cliffs, today the weather was beautiful, sunny with a gentle breeze. After lunch we drove along the top of the cliffs approximately 12Klms, the views were spectacular, every so far along the cliffs there are scuptures using different mediums, which added interest. All in all it has been a very pleasant day.

Feb 23, 2010 - Progress on a peninsula - Walkers Rocks

We continued along the Eastern side of the lovely Eyre Peninsula, stoping in at all the little picturesque bays along the way. We had our eyes peeled for a good camping spot, but by the time we got to Elliston, it was so late in the afternoon that we needed to find some where to stay NOW. We called in at the Info Centre, asking about water for our tanks, and camping in the local area. While Steve got chatting with the lady, I went over to the little supermarket on the main street. There had been nowhere to buy bread, milk and other...
