Our week at Ceduna has come to an end and we head off across the Nullarbor. An interesting town of 2000 people that though travellers never see as the highway makes a right angle turn at the ends of the town; Keith has been through here at least 65 times in the 70s and 80s and has never seen the town itself.
The town has a choice of 3 caravan parks plus the Shelly Beach one about 4kms out along the Eastern shoreline; we chose the Foreshore Caravan Park right in town and facing Murat Bay.
Highly visible from the caravan park and the town foreshore is the Silo Complex at Thevenard, a “suburb” of Ceduna and a grain terminal for the export of the cereal crops of the Eyre Peninsula. Almost adjacent to the wharf is the Pinky Point lookout and memorial tower.
Our visit would not have been complete without a lunch at the Ceduna Oyster Barn, one of the best known Fish and Chip cafes along the coast
Ceduna is yet another town with a very comprehensive local Museum which was started over 40 years ago by a local collector of all things , Allan Lowe, the donor of many of the exhibits. A few of the many items and general view here in this gallery:
