Hillocks Drive, Butlers Beach Camping

Late post, last March, Adelaide cup, was our long weekend camping with friends and as always with my sister. Since Lemon is working, we invite our other friends to go camping, it's their first time join camping with us. We don't know which area to take them because the friends wants that there is a proper toilet or shower, we don't like to camp on  Caravan and camping shore, because sometimes it can be crowded. So my sister and I decided to go back to Butler's Beach where there is complete amenities. With the idea as well  to tour them  around Innes National Park as they haven't explored that part of Yorke Peninsula. 

It's our 2nd time to camp on Butler's Beach, it was beautiful place,  quite and peaceful, away from other campers and it's very close to the beach, walking and hiking trails on cliff side. It's a huge property privately owned by Butler's family. There are few designated campsites to choose, from cliff side, beach front or farm side. They also have accommodation the Ocean pod,  overlooking the ocean and close to the rock pool. No one can access the property except for the paid campers as you need to have your own key to open the gate so your can access the property campsite, it's secure and safe camping.  Pam, the owner or part of the Butlers family was very friendly and helpful in accommodating us even it's within the day booking only.

We stayed there for two nights and during the day we explore Innes National Park and other side of the town. Our campsite was private and secluded, so we can laugh out loud with out bothering other campers. It was fun, during night time my sister and other friend plays guitar while singing and dancing plus with random conversation about life in general. It was very windy during the night too but we still sleep nicely.

Some photos I have taken during our camping and walking on the cliff side of the beach.
