Enjoy the Beautiful Coastal Environment

The Chain of Bays offers some of the best beaches and coastal scenery in Southern Australia, and visitors are encouraged to enjoy these locations.

Make sure you visit all four Bays, you will be astounded by the diversity of coastal environments in the Chain of Bays. Information on accommodation can be found at the District Council of Streaky Bay: Toursim webpage

Enjoy the Wirangu Interpretive signs

Recently the District Council of Streaky Bay have erected eleven new interpretive signs around the coastline of the Chain of Bays. You can see them at Sceale Bay, Surfers Beach, Yanerbie, Speeds Point, Smooth Pool, The Granites, Tractor Beach, Gibson Peninsula, Cape Bauer, Back Beach, and Baird Bay. Pictures of the new signs are on the Chain of Bay's Facebook page. To see them, go to the home page and click on the Facebook icon at the bottom left.

The artwork on the signs was created by Wirangu artist Susie Betts. The text was written by the Friends of Sceale Bay's Bob Minnican, and approved by the Australian Government Caring for our Country Project Working Group. This group consisted of members of the major stakeholders of the CFOC project: the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Wirangu elders, Friends of Sceale Bay, and the District Council of Streaky Bay

Enjoy reading about the meaning of these beautiful places to the Wirangu people, and learn about the flora and fauna, geology and history. Sometimes signs can be stolen or damaged, so if you notice one missing, please report it to the District Council of Streaky Bay.

Another sign will be erected by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources at Point Labatt soon. This sign is also being designed and created by Wirangu artist Suzie Betts.

Don't drive off established tracks

Sand dune and cliff-top vegetation is very sensitive to damage caused by vehicular trampling, and may take years to regenerate. The problem gets worse when tracks opened up by one vehicle are followed by another. Visitors are asked to keep to the established roads and tracks, and when in doubt, try walking!
