Port Willunga Beach, South Australia

Willunga is a little town in South Australia, not far away from Adelaide CBD. While public transport is very limited, the picturesque Port Willunga Beach is reachable by car just under 45 minutes.

Unfortunately weather was not perfect the day I was there. It was in fact quite windy and chilly – quite unusual in South Australia.

Still, I loved the colour of the sea.

What are these jetty pylons? That day I bumped into an old man. He has been residing in the area for decades. He gave me and my friends a short history lesson about Willunga. I could not believe those pylons were from the 19th century!

“Port Willunga was at this time one of the busiest ports in the colony of South Australia with the large wheat crops of the immediate interior being exported from its jetty.” (SA Memory)

These caves are just great for any photographic idea. I was quite impressed with the high dynamic range (HDR) performance of my iPhone. Look at the second picture.

Again, weather was far from perfect. Imagine it was a sunny afternoon, with the sun setting just above the horizon.

Well, till next time perhaps.

My favourite photograph that day. As a matter of fact it was candid. This cave is just perfect for taking these silhouette portraits.

 

Getting there

  • Transport: Unfortunately public transport is limited. Driving (or taking an Uber) from Adelaide CBD takes less than 45 minutes. Take the M2 highway then B23.
  • Price: Absolutely free of charge
  • Remarks: Bring water and snacks since there is no tuck shop as far as I remember. Bring a jacket too since it can get windy sometimes!
