Day 7 Queensland to Western Australia

Pildappa Rock @ Minnipa to Ceduna, South Australia

Pildappa Rock - What a great place to greet the sunrise! We had a good nights sleep and were in no hurry to leave this lovely campground. A donation was asked for which we were more than happy to put in the donation box and to sign the book. We head back to the Eyre Highway the same way as we came in. Across the Highway is the Apex Park where the famous "Crappa" Toilet is located.

We travel through more of the same scenery until we reach the small township of Ceduna located beside the Indian Ocean. We book into the Caravan Park that has ocean views, then go for a walk to check out the town. As it was Sunday, nearly every shop was shut and the town was dead, only Tourist's walking the streets.
There isn't a lot to see here, but I did like the esplanade walk where the Norfolk Island trees lined the edge of the road and the longish Jetty stretched out into the sea.

Ceduna foreshore & jetty

From the foreshore I could see Silo's in the distance which were at the Port of Thevenard, 3kms from Ceduna.

Thevenard

In the centre of a cross-road in the town centre is a sign post with umpteen mileages to many places around Australia and the world, quite interesting seeing how far we are away from these places as "the crow flies."
