Our Holiday at Port Elliot

Posted by speedygeoff on Sunday, October 23, 2005 with 2 comments
Last month we had an awesome holiday at Port Elliot in South Australia.

Here are a few of the photos we took of our stay.

The accommodation was on the water front and pictured is a popular surfing spot viewed from our window.

There are kilometres of running trails - walking paths, cycle paths, quiet roads, and beaches - leading in both directions along the coast.

And a great pub around the corner where we had dinner a couple of times.

The town is picturesque with many old buildings.

Wildflowers are everywhere, and a few kms to the east is the Murray Mouth at Goolwa, and to the west Granite Island at Victor Harbour, and the Fleurieu Peninsula.

The apartment we stayed in was fantastic. If anyone is interested, get in touch with Encounter Holiday Rentals - their apartment at Port Elliot is called "Castaway" and is the best place of that type we have stayed at - and it is brand new.

Yes I know this is like an ad but we enjoyed the holiday very much.

Jenny had a brand new digital camera and was trying it out at every opportunity.

We had rain and storms on day one, but there's nothing like coastal weather when you are from land locked Canberra.

And on day one the winds were so strong I had to turn back on one run and wait for relative calm.

But on the last day I found some new trails down a river, and I will have to return soon to explore them!

Jenny saw some whales out in the bay one day, but they were too far out to see clearly or to be photographed.

It was nice to get away from everything.

We will be back. Although, I imagine it is a very popular spot in the summer holidays!


  1. Thanks for sharing the photos, and glad you had a good time.

  2. Now Survivor Fans - Cast your minds back to the 'Oz', Version - wasn't that filmed down there?

    The Surfing sounds great - except for those 'Sharkies' that lurk in that beautiful blue water........
