Cowell on the Eyre Peninsula


The ferry from Wallaroo on the Yorke Peninsula to Cowell on the Eyre Peninsula saves about 350kms on the journey over to Western Australia and is a relaxing and enjoyable trip with frequent sightings of dolphins.
The ferry arrives in a rather remote location in Lucky Bay but after a short drive on a gravel road you arrive in the pretty town of Cowell with Norfolk pine trees down the centre of the main street. 
To my great excitement my brother James and his wife Maureen caught up with me at Cowell. They are just at the beginning of on an extended trip around Australia
The Cowell Motorhome Camp which is situated about 3kms south of the town on the foreshore, has only recently been moved from the dump point site in town so is rather barren but trees have been planted around the circumference and rubbish bins are emptied a couple of times a week.
