is situated on the south-western side of the Eyre
Peninsula. The region is most notable for being the premier oyster growing region for South Australia
, producing the ever popular ‘ Coffin Bay
’ Oyster, well known for its quality, flavour and size, and marketed all over Australia
There are 2 excellent National Parks for beach camping, excellent fishing and boating. It is the kind of place where you can really get away yet not be far from major facilities. To get the full benefit out of a trip to Coffin Bay
you really need a 4WD and be confident at driving in very soft sandy conditions as the whole park is an area of large drifting sand dunes.
To get the most out of your trip to Coffin Bay
you'll need to spend a few days in the National Park. From the ranger station to Point Sir Issac is just 55km and is approximately a 10hour return drive! Access through Seven Mile Beach
is dependant on the tide so plan your trip carefully.
2WD access is possible to both Point Avoid
(18km) and Yangie Bay
(15km) a popular camping area. Gunyah Beach is definitely for experienced 4WD only but is the best place to catch Australian salmon.
