Ceduna Things to Do
Lucky for us our Caravan Park was located across the road from the foreshore, and it had a gate so we didn't have to walk all the way around.I walked quite a way along the foreshore, saw some seagulls and Cormorants, Norfolk Island Pine trees and a rather long jetty. Ceduna’s Coastal Walking Trail winds along the foreshore of Murat Bay for 3.6 kms...more
It is always a good idea to visit the Info centre, but here in Ceduna, do make sure you visit it if your travelling across the Nullarbor, as it has brochures on Ceduna, the Nullarbor, Eyre Peninsula and other regional South Australian attractions. They know the cheapest places to buy fuel on the way across, don't forget to ask!The centre books...more
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...more
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.more
Totality approaches - You can't see the moon, but about 93% of the sun is obscured here, and the light levels have dropped dramatically, but in a very different way to a sunset. It is more like an artificial light being dimmed. It is absolutely bizarre. The clouds were clearing all the time as this picture was taken.more
CEDUNA FORESHORE HOTEL/MOTEL BISTRO: EXCELLENT SUNDAY BUFFET
When we booked into our Caravan Park we were told by reception the Hotel next door had a good buffet on that evening.
As the only other place open for food was a Pizza place, we decided to give it a go.
The Hotel has big glass windows in the Bistro so the diners have beautiful views over the Bay.
We walked in and saw it was very busy. Joining the queue to pay for the buffet, we found there were no tables available. BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL. We weren't told that.
A table became free and we were set to enjoy our buffet.
EVERY SUNDAY NIGHT THE HOTEL HOLDS A ROAST BUFFET NIGHT FOR THE LOW PRICE OF $19.90 - A BARGAIN
2) CHOICE OF 5 DIFFERENT ROASTS INCLUDING TURKEY. Could choose roast vegetables or salads.
3) DESSERT - Probably 12 different desserts to choose from including a massive Pavlova.
The food was good - no complaints at all, I just wished we lived closer as I would be here every Sunday.
So sorry, I forgot my camera!Related to:

The flight is approx. 1.5 hours. The earlier you book, the better the price. You can check all this out on the website.

Ceduna Warnings and Dangers
Protect your eyes!
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.
Ceduna Off The Beaten Path

Ceduna is the cheapest place to fill your car with fuel if your travelling across the Nullarbor Plain.The further west you head, the more expensive the fuel becomes until you can't believe the price you have to pay!The cheapest places for fuel on the Nullarbor are EUCLA AND MADURA.Eucla was 7 cents cheaper than Border Village.more
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. The local council and townspeople put on a great show and handled the eclipse event very well.more
