Our journeys around Australia


From Port Germein we drove south to the bottom of the Yorke Peninsula and set up in a bush camp at Hillocks Drive. The camp was very basic but with good clean loos and a great coastline. It was so good we stayed there for 4 nights and almost had the place to ourselves.

It was very hot with temperatures in the high 30's and low 40's but we managed to stay cool under the awning helped by the occasional cold shower and swim.

HillocksDrive  bush camp


Our en-suite shower was hanging from the tree behind the tent. The time Ali spent in the shower decreased dramatically after we watched a black snake slither out of the bush alongside the shower!

Hillocks sign


I liked the sign at the entrance to the camping area. 

Cooling off in the rock pool at Coffin Beach

There was quite a strong south easterly wind blowing while we were there which made the sea quite rough but we managed to find a sheltered cove and rock pools to swim in.

Innes National Park

We spent a day in the Innes National Park which has a spectacular coastline.
