Camping Favourite: Lipson Cove, South Australia

Lipson Cove, South Australia – image Dian Maney As you travel on the east coast of the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia, stop off at a favourite site, Lipson Cove. It is situated 13 km north east of Lipson, between Tumby Bay and Arno Bay, north of Port Lincoln. After 8 km of unsealed road, you will be rewarded with spectacular views and white sandy beach. Expect wildlife – you might see kangaroos, seals, dolphins, even penguins! Sites are large – there are ‘long drop’ toilets, and all for a budget price. There is a 14 day maximum stay – but they do

Budget and views: Camp at Murphys Haystacks, South Australia

The Eyre Peninsula in South Australia really is a wonderland to discover.  As we drove south from Streaky Bay, we dropped in to check out Murphy’s Haystacks, listed as a budget campground in our book! These amazing rock formations are on a farm – in a paddock! There is a picnic area and toilet, and the site is not far from the highway.  The camp area is pet friendly, has 24 hours maximum stay for RVs and Big Rigs. There is a small fee, mobile coverage, shade, limited level spots, but it is so unique, we’ve given it our CAMPS tick of approval!  It is

Absolute Beachfront: Speeds Point, South Australia

Speeds Point, Streaky Bay, South Australia Only 16 km south of Streaky Bay, near the Eyre Peninsula in SA you’ll find a small and spectacular budget camp site. At just $10 per night, there are no amenities, but there are amazing views. It is simply an open area in front of dunes on the coastal edge, and there is a beach connection.

Free historical stopover at Koonalda Homestead, South Australia

Barbel wrote into us about one unique site that has been listed with us since Camps 5!  This was our first crossing of the Nullarbor in 2008. A lot of people told us the Nullarbor is boring – quite the opposite, we found it most interesting and have crossed it 3 times since. It was also the second year we used Camps. Somebody told us about Koonalda – an old sheep station on the old Eyre Highway and we went to find it. Absolutely beautiful. It was not only a station but also a repair place and petrol station, the
