"STUNNING COAST AT ELLISTON" Elliston by balhannah

Elliston Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 54 photos

Elliston is a small coastal town located on Waterloo Bay on the west coast of Eyre Peninsula, 169 km northwest of Port Lincoln and 641 km west of Adelaide.

Elliston is located on small coastal inlet which is partially protected by a number of reefs lining the entrance to the bay. Outside of the bay, the coastline has fantastic large cliffs and a number of surf beaches.

Inside the bay, the water is calm and shallow, full of seagrass beds and reef, with sandy beaches lining most of the bay.

The Great Ocean Drive leads along the cliffs and open beaches, the views are fantastic and it's a MUST DO!

Marine activities include abalone diving, offshore abalone aquaculture, lobster and scale fisheries.

There are plenty of places to stay, sporting clubs and facilities, as well as churches, hotels and a large number of local businesses.

After having a wonderful time here, it was time to move along on our 11,500km road trip, this time right down the botton of Eyre Peninsula to the bigger town of PORT LINCOLN

      It is! Pity tourists think there is nothing to see in South Australia! Oh well, all the better for us Aussies, we have it to ourselves!

      Yes, that is always good. I cherish the spots we Icelanders have to ourselves now as there can be such a thing as too many people in one place.
