One of the Main Streets of Streaky BayMonday 23rd March
The Streaky Bay Community Hotel
Today saw us driving in the Jimny over to Streaky Bay about 11kms from Ceduna, again on the coast. It was a typical lovely country town in a farming district known throughout Australia for their Oysters. They are available for $7.50 a dozen a steal at half the price. They have Oyster Farm Tours available most days of the week. Some of their other valuable catches in the area are their famous King George Whiting, Southern Rock Lobster (or crayfish) abalone and shark. Many other species abound in Streaky Bay waters, including salmon, snapper, garfish, snook, tommy ruffs, flounder, trevally, squid, blue swimmer and sand crabs (we call blue swimmer crabs in WA Blue Manna crabs different states have different names for the same species.) razor fish and scallops
The Jetty at Streaky Bay. On the way back from Streaky Bay we called into Smoky Bay, again a lovely coastal town a little smaller than Streaky Bay. We actually had some of the King George Whiting for lunch and purchased some oysters to have some other time. Tomorrow we are leaving Ceduna and will probably head to Kimba on our way to the CMCA ( Campervan and Motor Home Club of Australia) National Rally in Whyalla.
