Camel Beach Trip South Australia

March 2018

Had a beautiful week exploring the stunning South Australia West Coast, a fabulous time was had staying at the Camel Beach House property, Mt Camel Beach is famous for its long golden sands and pristine wilderness. It sits at the southern tip of a spectacular coastal area known as the Chain of Bays (Venus Bay to Streaky Bay) which provides special habitats for a number of threatened species, including the Australian Sea Lion, White-Bellied Sea Eagle and Osprey and also provides habitats for many migratory birds. Mt Camel Beach's pristine coast is abundant with fauna and flora species, including wildflower season which is simply stunning.

Camel Beach House is an eco off-grid experience, utilizing the benefits and luxury of pure rain water and solar panels for energy. The design features embrace water and energy-efficient appliances and observe the principals of passive cooling and heating.

A truly stunning location and place to stay, everything you could want for a beautiful relaxing getaway, breathtaking coastal views with of course my favorite color...

Hooded Plovers (Thinornis rubricollis) are small- to medium-sized coastal shorebirds with a distinctive black hood and throat. Listed as vulnerable nationally, there are less than 800 of these birds in South Australia and only 7000 in Australia. Recent surveys conducted on the Fleurieu found only 22 breeding pairs.

Set on the stunning Mt Camel Beach 250 acre oceanfront heritage property, famous for its long golden sands, guests can experience absolute privacy while immersed in the pristine coastal wilderness.

Spectacular wilderness is your luxe panoramic movie screen as the Southern Ocean is constantly brimming with migrating whales and pods of dolphins, while Sea Eagles, Ospreys and migratory birds cruise by. Enjoy a wine with divine local seafood, watch the breathtaking sunsets, gaze the Southern Stars and wake to the glorious pre-dawn desert light.
