Australian Beaches: South Australia

From windswept clifftops and steep sided coves, to long sandy surf beaches and calm sheltered bays, the South Australian coastline is truly beautiful. 

Driving across the border from Victoria away from the spectacle of the Great Ocean Road, you come to a coastal region known as the Limestone Coast and then to The Coorong, Lake Alexandrina and the mouth of the Murray River.

Further west is the Fleurieu, the boot-shaped Yorke and the rugged Eyre Peninsulas. The more west you go, the more wild and jagged the coastline becomes.

    Woah what an array of beaches. Port Lincoln and Streaky Bay get my vote :)

      The Eyre Peninsula does have a very rugged, untamed and spectacular coastline. It was one of the highlights of our trip. :)

    I can’t help but think of Great Whites and freezing water. It does look quite spectacular and a coastline I’d love to explore Kathy.

      Great Whites were also on my mind Pinky. I don’t think I even put my little pinky toe in the water! It was a spectacular coastline but way too cold for swimming when we were there.

    The Yorke Peninsula is a personal favourite – but a recent trip through the Limestone Coast showed me that this area is SO worth a visit too!! As yet, the West Coast is unexplored – can’t wait to do it some day! Looks like you had a lot of rainy weather on your trip??

      We didn’t have the best weather during our tour around the South Australian coastline. It was mainly overcast, windy and cold. Not much rain though. The Limestone Coast was fantastic, in particular Robe. Such a pretty town. The Eyre Peninsula was even more spectacular!
