I think you'll find it is Yalata. Yatala is a gaol in Adelaide. Ceduna tourist info centre should be able to point you in the direction of permits etc if a search under Yalata doesn't help.

Actually Yatala is a southern suburb of Brisbane halfway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast - I would have thought pretty easy to find :-)

Hi Ian

As above, Yatala is the Adult male prison in Adelaide and one place that you would want to keep away from......lol

Follow the link that I have provided that gives you all the information that you will require.

Do you mean Yalata in SA?

If so, yes you need permits.


You also need to book well in advance if you tend to go in the Mulloway season. Gets booked out real fast.
November days are 40 plus.
Beware of tides and bad weather coming from WA, many have had their vehicles taken by the surprise tide at night.
Good luck!

Coombra Beach camping west side is great in 40 degree heat if you have plenty of shade and water. Always get a sea breeze of the ocean. Great reef inlet too.

But camp on the dunes not the beach.

We spent a week on Coombra Beach 2 years ago and got the adventure we were after.
70 & 25 pound Mulloway, 6ft shark, couple of Flathead and plenty of mullet for live bait.

Had to evacuate the camp on the beach after 3 days, 150km winds blew up from WA sand blasting us, could hardly open the doors on the vehicle. Tide came right up to the dunes.On the up side, the next day was a magic and the Mulloway came in mid afternoon on the incoming tide.

You have to do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!but be prepared.

The beaches are patrolled by locals once a day. Alcohol is prohibited being Aboriginal Land.

Hi Ian, good place to go and better with a quad bike so you keep your 4wd out of risk. Lots of tracks out there to explore also. If you want an alternative consider going down the dog fence track from just east of Yalata down to the beech. Google earth will reveal some good spots to camp and fish and no camping fees. Permits for Yalata have been a bit slow for me in the past but it is most definitely worth a couple of days. Just make sure your you can navigate back to your camp if you go for a good wander. No water down there either so carry all that you need. Restrictions on grog apply in Yalata lands also. Cheers
