Port Lincoln National Park


I had just reached Port Lincholn earlier that day. I had driven from Port Augusta to Port Lincoln on one tank of fuel in my fuel saving experiment. Buying fuel is obviously necessary but the most expensive part of my journey so I needed to find a way to conserve fuel better and by getting 400+ kilometers out of a single tank I had found that driving between 70-80km per hour is the perfect speed to save fuel.

I didn’t spend a long time in Port Lincoln. It’s a beautiful city, but cities for me represent crowds, I don’t much like and expenses that I can’t afford. So I spent the morning photographing the foreshore and moved on to the Port Lincoln National park.

The Port Lincoln National Park is located about 30 minutes south of Port Lincoln. Once you enter it is an all consuming show of nature with the tight scrub hugging the initially paved road. After a short drive the road turns to dirt and my camper “Forrest” has to take things slowly. He wasn’t built for dirt tracking. I decided to head to the eastern side of the national park to a beach called September Beach. It wasn’t an easy road in but slow and steady wins the race. Once there I found myself with a large choice of camping spots as there were only two or three other vehicles in the area, with people soaking up this gorgeous area.

September Beach is a spectacular little coastline of Port Lincoln National Park and I largely had it all to myself. There is a small island and a lighthouse nearby with the occasional passing fishing trawler. What a spot I had found and I decided to spend  few days there.

Here I took one of my favourite sunrise photos of the incoming tide. There is a good reason they call it the golden hour.

After spending a gorgeous few of days at Port Lincoln National Park I decided to head to Coffin Bay, which has another amazing national park I will blog about later.
