Simms Cove is located between Moonta Bay and Port Hughes and from the Simms Cove lookout you can see around to the Moonta Bay and Port Hughes jetties and look out over Spencer Gulf towards the Eyre Peninsula. There is stair access to the beaches either side of the lookout allowing you to walk from Moonta Bay to Port Hughes even at high tide. This is also the starting point for The Friends of Port Hughes Coastal Trail to Port Hughes.

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.
