Pt. Willunga: On the South Coast of Adelaide, South Australia
My son and I are heading to South Australia for the weekend. It’s a client’s private birthday party, and we’re conducting a cookery class luncheon to celebrate.
With its protective reef shelf to the south and a broad bay on Gulf St Vincent, this highly photographed spot was once all about sailing ships bound for South Australia to pick up slate and wheat, but Port Willunga is now all sea change and holiday houses high on the clay and limestone cliffs.
This was a significant site for the Kuarna aboriginal people, as their dreaming warrior and law-giver ancestor Tjilbruke wept tears here, creating fresh water springs up the broad and sandy beach. Our beach house venue is high on the cliffs overlooking the vast Southern Ocean.
