From Coffin Bay to Sceale Bay

We left Little Yangie Bay and therefore Coffin Bay NP in the morning and headed north to Elliston. On the way we found endless coastlines and countless bays, thus we stopped here and there to take a look. You can take one, too:

Near Elliston we did the Elliston Clifftop Drive along the coast and found a few interesting sculptures on the way.

In the Anxious Bay we sighted two interesting sites: The Woolshed and The Tub, both of which we explored in greater detail. First the Woolshed, a cave driven into the limestone by erosion:

The waves here were genuinely huge and beautiful:

Afterwards we were adventurous enough to climb into the Tub as well, a big hole in the ground with an arch that is connected to the Pacific surf:

The „ladder“ into the Tub consists of nothing more but an old tree stump with a few steps chopped into it. It does the job! 🙂

Looking for a campspot near Sceale Bay we came across Murphys Haystacks, an interesting rock formation made of granite as a leftover after the surrounding soil and rock had fully been eroded:

We found a bush-camping site in time to set up our tent in daylight at Sceale Bay and had a fine campfire .. another good day spent on the Eyre Peninsula. 😉
