Port Elliot


Port Elliot is a town in South Australia toward the eastern end of the south coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula. It is situated on the sheltered Horseshoe Bay, a small bay off the much larger Encounter Bay. Pullen Island lies outside the mouth of the bay. At the 2006 census, Port Elliot had a population of 1,754, although this section of the coast is now built up almost all the way from Goolwa to Victor Harbor.

Port Elliot is a small town on the Fleurieu Peninsular about 7 kilometres east of Victor Harbor and 85 kilometres south of Adelaide. Fellow travellers had suggested we stay at the Port Elliot Holiday Park when visiting the area and we are very pleased we took this advice. This is a large, well maintained park within walking distance to Horseshoe Bay, Freemans Knob and the Port Elliot town centre.  

Port Elliot Holiday Park entrance crossed over the Encounter Bikeway which runs from Goolwa to Victor Harbor. You can also catch the Cockle steam train that travels through Port Elliot on its journey to Victor Harbor (this train only runs certain days of the week so you will need to check the timetable).

Port Elliot is a popular holiday spot with a lovely beach at Horseshoe Bay and walking tracks along the foreshore - Freemans Knob, Commodore Point, and Basham Beach Conservation (Regional) Park. Our favourite eating place in Port Elliot was the Flying Fish Cafe which is located in the parkland along Horseshoe Bay where you can eat in the Restaurant area or order takeaway and enjoy beautiful seafood at one of the picnic tables overlooking the water. 

This historic little town has a great baker on the main street and some funky dress and souvenir shops housed in beautiful stone buildings that were once little cottages. We really enjoyed a relaxing holiday in Port Elliot and would not hesitate to visit again during our next caravan adventure in South Australia.
