"LAID BACK STREAKY BAY" Streaky Bay by balhannah

Streaky Bay Travel Guide: 48 reviews and 148 photos

Do you ever find a town that you love and want to return to some other time?

Streaky Bay was one of these for my husband and I.

Why, I don't know! I think it was the situation of the town, set beside a delightful sheltered bay, it was tranquil, quiet and pleasant.

Nobody in a rush here!

Streaky Bay is located on Western Eyre Peninsula in South Australia.

The small town was lovely, and there were quite a few breathtaking scenic drives we did, like to Murphy's Haystacks, to see the Seals at Point Labatt and just to explore the coastline

It really was "the" place for us to relax, unwind and sit on the beach at sunset with some "new" friends".....This is the life!

Time to leave behind beautiful Streaky Bay. WE will now head towards Port Lincoln, but will make a stop at VENUS BAY hopefully to sea pods of Dolphins.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lots of wonderful scenery surrounding the town
  • Cons:Very popular - Book accommodation
  • In a nutshell:A little bit of paradise by the seaside!

      I agree! We had a wonderful time here seeing the wildlife and the different types of scenery from the beautiful cliffs and ocean to the very unusual Murphy's rocks, all was good! Thanks very much for visiting.

      The opening photo was taken infront of our caravan park which right on the ocean front, just lovely! Thanks for the compliment.

    It is easy to understand that you want to return one day. The surroundings seems to be lovely!

    I always loved the Eyre Peninsula; almost bought a little hotel over there! Stumpy Tail looks quite strange; maybe alittle too big for my gatos to bring in, but they do get some good sized lagartias around here!
