Coffin Bay - 1st June 2009
Sometimes the most memorable places you visit, are some of the places you have no idea about or don't even plan to visit. I had heard a recommendation for Coffin Bay off a friend of my mother's, and we decided to check it out while travelling around the Eyre Peninsula. The township was nice, but quiet due to the time of year. However, it was the national park that really grabbed our attention. With beautiful cliffs, beaches and bays, complemented by sunny weather, we ended up driving part way up the 4WD track and camping for two nights, at "Port Douglas", appropriately enough. The first night was divine, with us cooking some local mussels on our gas stove on the beach, complemented by SA riesling.
