PORT ELLIOT HOLIDAY PARK
Basham Beach Reserve
Basham Beach Conservation Park is a large park which links Middleton and Port Elliot along the foreshore. During the winter, the stretch of water between Middleton and Port Elliot known as Fisherman Bay can host Southern Right Whales during the migration period.
The traditional custodians of this area are the Ramindjeri/Ngarrindjeri people. These two important indigenous stories are embedded in the land and sea.
If you plan on making a day of exploring the park, there’s plenty to do and learn. There’s an outdoor classroom, restored farm buildings, an Indigenous food & medicine herbarium, an interpretive trail and a section of the Encounter Bikeway cycle path.
The interpretive trail includes a number of signs that provide information on local history, whale watching and shipwrecks.
