Coffin Bay National Park
Known for its remote coastal scenery, the bays and coastline around the Coffin Bay National Park are ideal for boating, fishing, sailing, scuba diving and windsurfing. You can explore the park's coastal landscapes of high windswept cliffs and massive dunes, pounding surf beaches and sheltered sandy bays. At the southern end of the park is Yangie Bay, accessible by 2WD. It’s an ideal place to paddle your canoe, enjoy a bush picnic or explore a coastal bushwalking trail. Point Avoid and Golden Island lookout can also be reached by sealed road and you’ll be rewarded with spectacular island views along the way. The pristine northern beaches of Coffin Bay National Park are only accessible by high-clearance 4WD. A favourite destination for anglers, birdwatchers and surfers, this remote and beautiful area offers several secluded camping areas with easy beach access

Coffin Bay Oyster Walk
The Oyster Walk is a walking trail that follows the foreshore along the town of Coffin Bay. It’s easy to find the trail from the Esplanade which follows Kellidie Bay and Coffin Bay around to Long Beach. At the eastern end (the Port Lincoln end) there is a loop to a lookout in Kellidie Conservation Park, and an out-and-back trail to Old Oyster Town in Kellidie Conservation Park. The trail through the town section includes many interpretive signs of native wildlife and flora. The full trail is 10.4km long, although most people would just walk some sections of it. The section to Old Oyster Town in Kellidie Conservation Park is 2.2km one-way (or 4.4km return) from the main highway and park entrance. The section along the town foreshore is about 5.5km long.
