Fowlers Bay, South Australia

FOWLERS BAY street Historic Fowlers Bay in the far west of South Australia is these days more known as a fishing Mecca, but if you are into four wheel driving on some of the best beaches in Australia then Fowlers Bay could easily become a favourite spot.

The small hamlet of Fowlers Bay has a caravan park (ph: 08 8625 6143), some pleasant holiday flats and motel units (ph: 08 8625 6179) and a small shop. Diesel is available in the town, but petrol and mechanical repair are only available at Nundroo, 26km away on the Eyre Highway. The town’s jetty, built in 1896 and upgraded in 2002, is popular with visitors and locals alike.

Scott Beach

Scott Beach, reached by a 4WD track along the beach and then thru’ the dunes is a sweeping arch of white sand that leads to Scott Point and a series of cliffs and small bays ideal for more remote camping and fishing.

West of here is the Wahgunyah Conservation park and the Head of the Bight, the latter a fantastic place to view whales during the winter months.

When you are travelling across the Nullarbor next you could well enjoy a couple of days around Fowlers Bay. For more info check out:
