Ceduna, South Australia

Gateway to the Nullabor Plain, Ceduna is the last major town before Norseman, 1200 kms away, so travellers stock up here before leaving. At the border to Western Australia, any fruit, vegetables, nuts or honey are confiscated so you have to eat them before you get there. Tourists coming across the other way from Perth often stay here but usually only for one night so the town has a transient feel.

The caravan park is situated right on Murat Bay as is the hotel and you can walk to the everything from here. The Ceduna Foreshore Hotel won the South Australian Tourism Award in 2008. It has stunning views over the bay from the bars and bistro areas - it's unusual to find a hotel of this calibre in a country town.

Thanks to a tip from the lady in the Visitor's Information Centre, we had a delicious meal of King George Whiting bought from the Fish Factory, caught this morning, straight off the fishing boats.
