After the The Red Centre our first coastal stop in South Australia was at Canunda national park at a campsite descriptively called number 2 rocks. It was good to see surf again even though I was boardless, but it sure was wild, this is a pretty epic coastline. The full fury of the southern ocean hits shallow rock shelf all along this coastline.
I spent my birthday here doing the following:
-eating copious amounts of cheese
I also drank a few beers.
All in all it was a great day, and a great place to spend a few days while we waited to go on the ferry to Tasmania.
How to get there:
From Carpenter Rocks drive north, the road will eventually turn to gravel and then sand. The sand track runs the length of Canunda national park.
$ 13 per night for up to 6 people in one vehicle.
There’s nowhere to launch a boat near the campsite. You can launch at Carpenter Rocks, but beware this ocean can be rough.
I’m sure the snorkeling would be great here if you were lucky enough to get a calm day.
Sliding down sand dunes, weeeee!
