Ceduna is a fisherman's paradise with anglers on Ceduna's jetty frequently catching good hauls of Garfish, Salmon, Snook, Tommy Ruff, Blue Swimmer Crabs and the occasional squid.
Ceduna squid makes a good all purpose bait that can be bought from local supermarkets and sports stores. Best fishing times are usually an hour or so before and after high tide.
Take a nice stroll to the end of the jetty at Murat Bay, one a nice day - one might get lucky and get a view of the whales as the migrate to warmer waters.
Other pastimes include fishing or simply do what I did - grab a book and enjoy the sun .
The rarest, most amazing sight in nature. In reality the moon looked far larger than this. It was the most astonishing, bizarre thing it is possible to imagine. The drop in the light levels was extraordinary. Thankfully there was a gap in the clouds. People on the nearby peninsula of Cape Thevenard had their view obscured.
When looking at the partial phase of an eclipse, do not look directly at the sun. Use proper filters like Mylar (not photographic film, unless it is black and white film, or smoked glass!) or use indirect viewing methods like a pinhole camera. Welders glasses are ok. Always check for scratches on eclipse glasses. If any light gets through, don't use them. During totality it is safe to look because no sunlight is visible.
There simply isn't any single word in the dictionary that can describe the feeling in Ceduna during the wee hours of the morn.
Far from the tourist heartlands of Australia, Ceduna suddenly became a place people from all over the World wanted to visit. For 32 seconds there was no better place to be on Earth.

The name Ceduna comes from the Aboriginal word for "resting place." People are most likely to visit en route between Adelaide and Perth, with Ceduna being the last stop before the vast Nullarbor plain is crossed.
Fondest memory: The local council and townspeople put on a great show and handled the eclipse event very well.
