15th – 17th January: Streaky Bay

With the prospect of a long drive we left Spear Creek around 8.15am; the surroundings included saltbush, horses, Port Augusta Coal Fired Power Station and Port Augusta. Travelling west the photo opportunities at the Iron Knob Mine site were much better.

We travelled back through Kimba, which has the big Galah and is the halfway mark from west to east.  Lunch was at Wudinna and happy hour in Streaky Bay with our neighbour in the park but also lives in Australind which is just down the road from Mandurah, small world!

The three days at Streaky have been wonderful, beautiful weather during the day, cool nights and parked all but on the beach.  Oysters in abundance, seafood to die for, what more could you ask for?  We walked the town, along the beach and dined at Mocean Restaurant which is situated on the waterfront in the centre of town.  Nice food, bit expensive for the serving sizes though.

There is some gorgeous shops just to poke around in for souvenirs to take home:).

We drove down to Yanerbie, where there is some gorgeous homes just sitting in the sand hills, with magnificent views of the bay and ocean, so restful.  The Westall Way Loop Drive took us to Tractor Beach, Granites surf beach, Point Westall, Smooth Pool and Fisherman’s Paradise.  This is a stunning coast line and I am sure a beautiful place to live.
