Day 17 - Tuesday 22 May 2012

Port Lincoln to Ceduna

We had rain overnight and everything was wet as we packed up for our trip to Ceduna - 407 kms. We finally got away after a visit to the local dump point. We stopped for papers and a morning coffee at the Elliston bakery. At one time Elliston was a grain port with access through a barway between to reefs. Like most of these places the jetty remains for the use of the fishers.

Next stop was Venus Bay for lunch. Venus Bay is a small commercial fishing port with a caravan park located on the waterfront.

After leaving Venus Bay we made a final stop at Murphy's Haystacks, which are pink granite inselbergs that were left standing after the surrounding area weathered.

We arrived at the Ceduna Foreshore Caravan Park just after 4 pm and set up camp on a drive through site for 3 nights. As there was a stiff breeze off the water we decided not to set up the awning.
