Shane, I reckon Canunda is a pretty hairy place and I can't imagine taking a caravan in there. Still there are different points to enter park and there might be an opportunity that someone can help with. However, consider bush camping at Southend on the edge of Canunda - you pay at the caravan park (it's fairly cheap??) and travel a km or so up the road. Need a key. Its a nice place to camp. Has flush toilets. For shower go back to CP. Cheers JD

$4 a head a night, Protected from the wind, walking over 1 dune to the beach to fish,(caught a good feed of Elephant sharks) flushing dunny,fresh water,able to have a fire only able to get takeaways if he decides to cook, A real gem of a town.

We were there last year and will be back a little later on. As far as Canunda is concerned great place to visit. The beach driving is extremly difficult in parts but there are inland tracks to take.

Be very aware of the beach at Canunda. The sand is softer than you think, the beach can slope steeply to the sea, and its pretty easy to get stuck on an incoming tide.

Hi Shane

Ii was there last year and there was No way you could get a van up the first sandhill at the entrance - I had to have two goes at it in the TD100.

When we exited the park we used a different route ( starting from a little south of the main entrance), that came out just the Millicent side of the sandhill at the entrance - I think if you enter by that stony track, which I think was signposted, I think you may be OK.

I strongly suggest you leave the van at the entrance and drive around looking for suitable tracks and campsites before heading in with the van. Once in the park you should be able to travel much of the track behind the beach sandhills without difficulty. Dont even think of venturing to the beach with the van.

Have fun....
Cheers, Dalb

Shane,

Do not attempt to tow a van in there, and do not attempt to drive a vehicle on the beach this time of the year or it will probably finish up in the "salty soup" like quite a few others over the years.
I might add they stay there, the last one I can recall was a Jackeroo.

Cheers Nick
