heading up to Flinders Beach on NStrad and wondered if it's feasible to pitch a tarp using those telescopic aluminium poles in the sand? Is it best to put some kind of plate under @ pole to stop em sinking 3 foot into the sand. I'm assuming we'll need 50cm plastic sand pegs & spring tensioned guy ropes. Camped on sandy dirt before but not actually beach. Advice appreciated.

We camp on the sand all the time. We have wooden blocks that we acquired some where along the tracks that have circular rebates in them which is just the right size for the poles. Have purchased plastic ones but have found the wooden ones better. Camping on Flinders you are camped just away from the beach behind the trees. There is a fence running along the beach which you have to camp behind. Because of this you usually dont cope the full wind stength if it is really windy. Make sure you have your permit arranged especially in peak times as it can get booked out.
Have fun

doh........thanks Jenkie. Simple innit? We'll be going up in NSW school hols in Spring where they're staggered to miss the Qld ones. Still, point taken. Taking a couple of sea kayaks up to paddle mainly the W side of the island with the young lad (& family) can't wait
