    Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park, stunning coastline of Spencer Gulf
    While we had seen many photo's of the Coastline along Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park, you need to experience this magnificent vista yourself to appreciate. The National park is right at the bottom tip of Yorke Peninsula and has many lookouts along the western side overlooking the Spencer Gulf waters and the cliff-line of the park. The park even has it own "ghost town" as such called Inneston and while some of the buildings are slowly decaying, some have been fully renovated and can be booked for stays. Before we went, was unsure if the roads in the park were sealed but just about all are except for a few tracks.

    Stenhouse Bay Campground (Innes NP)
    Low cost camping in a beautiful part of the world!!! Highly recommend, great spot, level sites, pending weather you might get wind, but a short drive around the western side and there’s many a great spot to visit within 25mins drive. The toilets are great, bbq facilities perfect. This was such a great spot. Sites varying in size from large 23ft vans to small tent sites.

    Exhilarating swim compensated for tricky park entry
    The park booking system needs improvement. All the signs state “On-line” only, so we duly proceeded to a dodgy computer outside the park office. 15 frustrating minutes later, our process stalled, we asked inside for assistance. “Oh we could have done that for you. Our computer is very clunky!! was the response!! Entry sorted. Next stop was the Stenhouse Lookout walk. Over half the signs were unreadable. Embarrassing & very unprofessional. Ok whinging done. Rest of park excellent, with good roads, signage & facilities…. and most importantly excellent coastal scenery, walks & beaches. A beautiful exhilarating swim at Shell Bay topped up a very good day.

I was only able to stay one afternoon and drive through the park but I really wish I would have been able to camp for a few days, to really enjoy the whole park and its walks. Driving through and stopping at some of the points were already giving you incredible views but also peace from being in nature.
One point is that a lot of the paths are tracks so I would suggest coming with a 4x4 or high car that can drive on the trail. the trail are well kept (not many bumps and mudpools) but still.

PS: remember to pay the park fee online or at the visitor center (you can do it on their machines)

Stenhouse Bay is a fabulous campground. Great sites, fairly level, and surrounded by native shrubs and trees. There are good, clean toilets and gas barbecues should you need one. We stayed 6 nights, and did day trips out to all the amazing sites in the area.

What a stunning part of Australia. $12.50 for a vehicle day pass is a small price to pay for fabulous views and phenomenal beaches. Lots to explore and filled 2 whole days. Free camping (permit permitting) for tents and vans alike. Short and long walks and bike trails. Will not disappoint.

A bit out of the way at the tip of Yorke Peninsula, but a destination certainly worth the trouble of getting to. Stunning coastal views, wonderful wildlife, early settler history and a number of campgrounds in great locations - you need to book online prior to arrival.

We stayed at the Stenhouse Bay campground and it was excellent.

Lots of lookouts, beaches short walks to visit within the park, also the Inneston town walk. Recommend it all.

Enjoyed the Stenhouse Bay lookout walk, Pandolowie boardwalk, Chinaman’s lookout and beach, West Cape lighthouse, Stenhouse Bay jetty, Cape Spencer lighthouse and Marion Bay lookouts: the list goes on.

A stunning national park with easy access to most features.

What a gem of a Park. Definitely worth the drive. Stunning coastal scenery to rival any other in the state or country! Reminiscent of Kangaroo Island in parts, but with its own highlights. Our only suggestion for improvement would be to have more and better information boards at some of the lookouts. There were views of islands, but no idea of what they were called.
