The Nullarbor


Ceduna and Home

Tuesday - 14th September

Continued on across the Nullarbor, stopped in at a couple more scenic lookouts, the views got even better.  At the bottom of one of the cliffs we spotted a seal lazily swimming along.  Didnít see any whales, supposed to be a lot in the area.  Arrived at Ceduna and checked into the Foreshore Caravan Park.  Nice sites, good facilities and handy to beach and shops.  Set up, did a bit of shopping then went out to look at some candidate fishing spots.  Probably fish tomorrow if weather OK.  Bought a couple of dozen fresh oysters, they were beautiful.

Wednesday - 15th September

Went on a tour of one of the Ceduna fish processing plants this morning.  Good talk on the history of fishing in the area and a demonstration of filleting whiting and shark.  Bought some fillets of whiting, snapper and mulloway.  Went fishing down the Thevenard wharf.  I caught a fish, a "Tommy" I think, it was pretty small so it went back.  In the afternoon we went round to Denial Bay and tried some fishing off the wharf there.  A few dolphins swam past very close to the end of the wharf.  Caught a strange little "Box" fish but threw that back too. Then went down to the Astrid Oyster Farm.  Max there told us all about oyster production and gave us a few samples.  Beautiful.  Bought 5 dozen live oysters to take home with us.

Thursday - 16th September

Packed up and left Ceduna heading east.   Miles and miles of wheat paddocks all looked very lush.  Stopped at Kimba for lunch then pushed on past Pt. Augusta to an overnight stop at  Mambray Creek rest area. Trucks roaring past on one side of us and trains roaring past on the other, probably have a disturbed sleep.  Opened up a dozen of our oysters, delicious.  Curry for tea.
