This big 4, in Ceduna, was the last place we decided to stop and fill our tanks. We also needed to do some much-needed washing, before continuing west to the Nullarbor.
We arrived to a packed park. The couple in front of me trying to book in for a site had no luck as they were full. I was glad we booked online, something we have never done before as we usually don't stay in caravan parks.
I was greeted with a warm welcome and given directions to our site. We were also offered help with reversing in to our site if needed, a nice extra touch if you need it. We were also given a code for 500mb of free WIFI.
Larry backed in perfectly to our designated spot, manoeuvring around vans and boats galore.
First things first, we took a heap of washing to the laundry. They have three washing machines, one is 10 Kilo ($4) and fit all our sheets, towels and bits of clothes. We used one of the two dryers after, just to speed up the process ($4). In addition to the machines they also have a washing powder dispenser, if you need any ($2).
While waiting for the washing I checked out were the Dump point was. As we have only stayed in about three caravan parks I'm not sure if this one is the norm. It was kind of like a small toilet. When I emptied our cassette the next morning I found it probably better than the blue lid ones we always use. This was higher so no need to bend down and have an ache back 🙂
Fish Cleaning Bay's
As a result of being in a great fishing area they have a couple of fish and Crab cleaning rooms. This park is definitely set up for people who like to fish! Almost every van came with a boat. They Consequently have a Crab cooker's you can borrow for free, if you catch some blue swimmer crabs.
Once you catch your fish, you can cook it up in there nice camp kitchen/ BBQ/ TV area.
You many also want some fresh oysters, which they sell.
After finishing the washing we drove the 300 meters to the main shopping area. They have Cafe's, banks and supermarkets.
Also at the end of the street is the water and a long jetty you can walk down or fish off. It was a cold windy day so we didn't stay long.

Nullarbor Links Gold Course
We had a short drive, to some points of interest that we found on WikiCamps.
Nullarbor Links Golf Course was one of them. The 1st and 2nd hole's are here. The start of the 18-hole par 72 golf course. This spans 1365 Kilometres with one hole in each participating town or roadhouse.
Hole 1 and 2
Wild Wind Things
One of the slightly obscure points of interest was “Wild Wind Things”. We headed down a couple of streets to the ocean front again. On a fence, in someone’s garden were some home-made art wind sculptures, made of left over bits and bobs. We just did a drive by and carried on but this might be a nice little thing for kids to see 🙂

Back at the park we filled up one of our gas bottles, another handy service they have at the park. The park was $30 for power and water. It's a nice clean park with friendly and helpful staff.
When we checked in I was offered an information leaflet on the area, I declined as we had so much washing to do, I didn't think we would have time to check the place out. I should have taken it as I know there would have been so much more to do 🙁
