Streaky Bay SA

On the Eyre Peninsula

sunny 25 °C

This is a great , to spend a week. We are right on the coastline and our friends, Vicky and John from Cessnock are here also. Most of the people in the park are from NSW. There are 3 couples from Macksville and it is a very, very social park. Everyone having happy hour or 3 together and sharing travelling yarns. Very homely. There is plenty of wild life around. Yesterday afternoon, we had a 2 metre shark just out the front about 50 metres entertain us all. Noone would go out and see if it was a White Pointer or a Tiger Shark. The more we drunk, the bigger it got. Entertained the Caravan Park folk for hours. The locals swim in a shark cage built off the jetty.

The pelicans live out the front of our van as the neighbours feed them after there daily catch. The pelicans never move from that spot.

The coastline is very rugged and the wheat farms are right to the coast. The oysters are the best we've ever had and very resonably priced. There are sealions everywhere and very happy to have there photo taken. They seem to sunbake most of the day. There are dolphin schools also. The native widelife is very abundant.

The drives around this area are very isolated. There is plenty of lizzards on the roads but no kangaroos, or farms. It seems to be a fishing area and the local seafood is very cheap and great quality. You can have fish and chips anywhere in town for $7.50. Tony says why bother fishing........

great coastline view with easy access for tourists
