Southern Ocean Lookout
House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Southern Ocean Lookout is a modern two storey house, with a large balcony overlooking magnificent sea views. Situated on a natural bushland block the serenity is unbelievable.
There are panoramic views from our elevated position in almost every direction. The house looks out over stunning sea views which encompass the most northern part of the Coffin Bay waterway. Enjoy the sunset from the large balcony looking over the water (just 400m from the house) to Horse Peninsula and Coffin Bay National Park. The panoramic views also include Mount Dutton and vast areas of native bushland.
Many of our guests have written delighted comments about the view, but this comment from Josh and Rachelle on September 24th 2013 probably says it the most graphically-
"Quite possibly the best view in the state! We have loved every minute of our stay.....Thanks so much for sharing this gorgeous place!"
Claire, Denny, Bailey, Kye and Nash wrote "Wow! what a beautiful spot! The views amazing!..."
The Lookout is in a serene setting on 125 acres of open, original coastal bushland which is roamed by kangaroos and emus and frequented by a wide range of birds, including sea eagles and wedge tail eagles. Apart from the owners' adjoining house, your nearest neighbour is more than 200m away and the next 1km! The shores of Salt Creek, which have two small shallow beaches are about 400m down the drive.
Josh and Rachelle- "...The wildlife has been a real treat..."
Ian, Sue and Madi- "We loved the scenery and the native animal display you put on for us every night"
Adam, Clare and JJ- "We enjoyed watching the roos out the front in the afternoon"
Richard, Bryan, Christine- "Loved the kangaroos"
Just 6km away there is Farm Beach, the best family swimming beach in the summer on the southern part of the Eyre Peninsula. You can drive onto this beach, so not only do you do not have to slog on foot to get the family and all that paraphernalia onto the beach, but you also have the choice of any section of this long beach. During summer a concrete and timber ramp provide easy access to the beach even for two wheel drive vehicles.
Along the coast north of the Lookout there are spectacular rugged beaches ideally suited to land based fishing and surfing. The nearby Coffin Bay National Park has a great mix of very calm and surf beaches also.
Mark- "...I suggest to drive to Coles Point and Greenly Beach..."
This is a prized fishing location and we are pleased to offer our guests who have a boat licence the rental of our 4 metre Quintrex boat with flat floor and 25hp Yamaha motor. If hire of our boat interests you, please enquire at the time of booking to avoid disappointment.
A boat gives a greatly enhanced opportunity to fish this area. The Lookout is favourably positioned for the best land based and boat fishing options on the west side of the Eyre Peninsula. Farm Beach (only 6km from the house) provides direct access to the best fishing grounds avoiding the long run from Coffin Bay. Boats launching from Coffin Bay township must endure choppy seas whipped up by the sea breeze. Access to the more sheltered Coffin Bay waters is simple via the concrete boat ramp, complete with floating pontoon only 3km away at Mount Dutton Bay East.

The South Australia region
The southern Eyre Peninsula is a very scenic par of South Australia. With an untamed coastline consisting of deserted beaches and wild rocky headlands the region is just begging to be explored.
Mount Dutton Bay
Mount Dutton Bay at the foot of Mount Dutton on the edge of the Coffin Bay waterway is the perfect spot to base yourself for a relaxing break away from it all. You can enjoy the almost deserted coastline fishing, surfing, sampling the local seafood or just sightseeing.
