Port Hughes is a town on the Yorke Peninsula's Copper Coast and just 171 kilometres from Adelaide.  We called in to look around during our caravanning adventure in South Australia and discovered a beautiful caravan park and golf course.  

Port Hughes is very well known for fishing and is apparently the most popular fishing spot on the Yorke Peninsula. There is a jetty and boat ramp near the caravan park and plenty of space to park the car and trailer. The boat ramp is protected by a break wall to help with launching the boat in windy conditions.

Lovely looking beaches with white sand stretch along the coastline of Port Hughes and this is well known holiday destination for families. The Port Hughes Tourist Park is a Family Park located close to the beach with lots of activities provided for children (Jumping pillow, playground, go-karts, mini golf etc).

There is a tavern and takeaway shop close to the water and I understand the fish and chips are very good.

We also visited the Copperclub Golf Course while in Port Hughes and this is a Greg Norman designed course created on the dunes among native vegetation along the foreshore.  It consists of 9 holes at the moment with different tee positions to play 18 - black flags for the front 9 and red flags for the back 9.
