Home to some of the very best prawns around (in our opinion), Port Kenny might be small but its seafood is out of this world.
Close to some of the best experiences along the West Coast, Port Kenny is a fantastic place to either base yourself or make a stopover. The sea lions at Point Labatt, Murphy’s Haystacks, Mount Camel beach and Talia Caves are all just a short drive away.
And you can get some of the freshest seafood at the local Port Kenny Hotel, where the fish is caught that day! They won the Small Business award at the South Australian Seafood Industry Awards in 2017.
Perhaps most importantly, though, Venus Bay Prawns are on the menu! Based out of Port Kenny and Venus Bay, you’ll struggle to find better prawns anywhere in the world.
Things To Do
Fishing, of course
Whether you’re fishing off the jetty or out in the boat, garfish, snook, flounder, trevally and King George whiting are never far from the hook.
Explore the stunning Talia Caves
You’ll have seen this on social media, too – the beach is good for rock fishing, but the Woolshed is a huge cavern created in the granite cliff by the waves, with a walkway and stairs to help you explore. The Tub, a large crater with a 30m tunnel connection to the sea, is epic to behold – adventure seekers can climb down.
Check out Mount Camel beach
Windswept and wild, Mount Camel is great for year-round surf fishing for salmon, mullet and large tommy ruff. You can also stay here in absolute privacy in the Camel Beach House, an oceanfront heritage property.
