- For both beginners and experienced drivers. You may tackle some tracks with steep and/or rocky/slippery/sandy sections.
I have been to Beachport/Robe SA a few times and have been wanting to return. I really love what this area has to offer and memories that bring me back :)
SAND FLAGS COMPULSORY
We will be staying at the Southern Ocean Tourist Park in Beachport . Phone 08 8735 8153. ask for Dan.
Please mention “4wdtrip.com group” cost is $32 per night per site (includes 2 ppl allowance ). If there are extra adults or children after the allowance , they will charge $12 per person.
To keep the group together - there is an unpowered sites area. You may choose to select where you want to stay but you can be slotted very far from the main group . I do believe there is one powered site 50 metres from the unpowered sites area where the group would be located if you need a powered site.
Please note this area comes alive at this time of year and many parks are near capacity.
Do bring recovery gear , shovels and maxtrax for those that have them.
Bring food , water and drink for your duration however long you may decide to stay.
If you want to fish - bring some fishing rods and tackle.
Depending on numbers - we can arrange appropriate caravan park site - camping ground format or even possibly look into campsites or even cabins.
Some caravan/camping sites allow campfire/dogs but being summer will need to confirm.
Update : NO Pets or Campfire .
