Port Parham 73 kilometres from Adelaide map reference G7 With its wide, clean and shallow reaches, Port Parham is a very popular crabbing beach. At the northern end of the town is a popular free campsite. Port Parham Sports and Social Club offers bar and dining facilities. Port Rickaby 209 kilometres from Adelaide map reference D8 Once you get to Port Rickaby, you will want to stay. With only one way in and out, the town is something of a hidden secret. The town has plenty to offer visitors, including a family-friendly beach. The jetty was lengthened three times for grain shipping and makes for a pleasant stroll. And the fishing at Port Rickaby is great.

For over 70 years grain was loaded onto magnificent ships bound for Europe via Cape Horn. The Pamir and Passat were the last two ships to leave in 1949. The lost era of sailing is evoked in the local museum. Today, the town is a paradise for anglers and scuba divers, with eight shipwrecks around Wardang Island forming a diving trail. A Geology Trail showcases its volcanic beginnings.
