Hi all, I'm a first time poster, so please excuse any dumb questions! I have a well set up Mazda BT 50 and Outback off-road camper trailer with racks that carry a 3.75 meter v nosed tinny. We are self-sufficient so bush/beach camping is ok. I never take time off during school holidays and other busy times, but plan to get away for a couple of weeks in Jan 13, but not sure where to go. We are looking for a beach area with good surf fishing and somewhere we can safely fish in a small boat. I realize there are lots of places but we hate crowds so need somewhere away from NSW south coast. We were thinking maybe Robe in SA, but have heard varying reports. Somewhere western Vic or eastern coast of SA I thought may be a bit less crowded. Any thoughts appreciated.Thanks in advance, Wayne & Bec

Hi Bigbuzz
I know its not east coast but try Coffin Bay National Park or Lincoln Nat. Park on the west coast SA. Way underrated and not crowded.

Hi All,

Yeah, I like them too.

Just remember that ALL National Parks & Conservation Parks in SA are subject to closures on days of Total Fire Ban, though.

While I'd argue that you might get more of those in February, potential fire bans in January can be difficult to predict.

Bemm River in South East Vic.

Venus Bay on the Eyre peninsula.
