Information

Point Sinclair is a 40m high dune and calcarenite capped granite headland with small beaches on either side. The Point Sinclair area covers 502 ha area of coastline that features dramatic cliffs, blowholes and huge sand dunes. The gravel road from Penong ends at the top of the bluffs overlooking Port Le Hunte. A vehicle track leads down to the jetty, where there is a small informal camping area between the bluffs and a seawall.

Port Le Hunte beach is 650m long and faces the southeast in a sheltered bay. The beach has inter-tidal rock flats fronting the eastern half. There is a toilet block and fresh water at the jetty, but no other facilities. The 200m jetty is no longer used to ship wheat, and a shark net has been strung along the jetty and back to the beach to provide a shark proof swimming enclosure. This is required as there have been shark attacks at the beach and at adjoining Cactus. During summer fishermen launch their boats from the beach and moor them just off the beach.

Point Sinclair was the first land in South Australia to come under a 1980 Heritage Agreement where, in exchange for not paying rates, a landholder agrees to maintain the native vegetation and allow access to the public. It is under this agreement that camping is permitted just behind the dunes of Cactus Beach at the Point Sinclair camp ground.
