Haslam SA - Under the jetty

We’d like to thank Kerrie Wall for sending us these beautiful images, and told us why she loved her stay in Haslam, SA.

It was a short drive off the highway. It is a very, very quiet little spot with no shops or services at all, but it’s convenient to Ceduna or Streaky Bay. Population is about 60 most of whom are oyster farmers. 

There is access to a public toilet and it has a dump point. Haslam relies on people’s honesty to leave the small site fee ($10) in the box. Like many coastal towns in SA it has a lovely jetty with squid, blue swimmer crabs and razor fish, being the main attractions. If you’re lucky, you can buy fresh oysters from the farmers when they return from out in the bay. 

We spent a wonderful afternoon fishing from the jetty, with a few of the young locals who were keen to share their local knowledge. The end of the jetty is a beautiful spot to watch the sun go down and enjoy a few coldies. 

Haslam Camping Ground is SA site 597 in Camps 10. It is suitable for big rigs and pets. There are fireplaces, BBQ, mobile coverage and shade, as well.
