Budget and waterside camp: Second Creek Beach, Eyre Peninsula, South Australia

Our ambassadors Manda and Daniel thought this was a great small camp. There was only room for three or four sites. It is a flat site and there is a boat ramp (with 4WD access) and toilets, too! Payment is available onsite with an honesty box, but there are no bookings. You can swim, fish and bring your pet. There is a low ocean swell here because of the Islands of the Sir Joseph Banks Group, so no need to bring a surfboard! The camp is located south of Tumby Bay, on the eastern side of the beautiful Eyre Peninsula. What to see

The Spit, Gold Coast, Queensland #3 Best Aussie Beach 2022

Another isthmus – this time in one of the most popular locations for beach holidays – Queensland’s Gold Coast. And it’s at the business end! I grew up knowing “The Spit” as the home of Seaworld – where we could go see the dolphins, orcas, seals and rollercoaster! People have commented on the name, but ‘spits’ are common in Australia. It is a narrow landform, attached to the coast, often near a river mouth. Here it is the gateway from the ocean to Gold Coast Broadwater at Southport. On our last visit to Main Beach, we ‘discovered’ you could escape into
