Wattle Point Campground is located approximately 8km from Edithburgh, including 6km of unsealed road, via Wattle Point Road. It is a short walk (30m) through the dunes to the peaceful Sheoak Beach; a great spot for swimming, snorkeling, fishing, kayaking and beach walking. The beach is mostly sand, but a reef is nearby and the seaweed can build up at times.

There are a few sites in the campground that have shade coverage and the dunes provide protection against onshore wind. The campground is suitable for big vans, but sites are unallocated – it is first in best dressed. A toilet is provided, but self-sufficient camping is encouraged. The closest bin bank is in Edithburgh, on Sultana Point Drive, across from the Caravan Park. The Wattle Point Windfarm is nearby and turbines can be heard at night.

Edithburgh is a historical coastal town with facilities including – café’s, general store, 2 hotels, museum, local crafts, public toilets, petrol station, jetty, boat ramp and shops.

The Yorke Peninsula is the traditional lands of the Narungga (Nharangga) people, who have lived on, and cared for, this country since the beginning of time. We work, live and travel on Nharannga Banggara [Country], and we take time away from those pursuits to acknowledge and pay our deep respects to the Nharangga Elders of the past and present. 

Today, it is essential that we continue to care for and protect our spectacular natural environment. Tread lightly and leave no trace. Learn more about responsible and respectful travel on Yorke Peninsula.
