Coffin Bay  South Australia

Coffin Bay seems an unlikely name to bestow on such a picturesque resort town and beautiful estuary famed for its succulent oysters and lobsters.

But history tells us that the moniker has nothing to do with death or funerals. Matthew Flinders named Coffin Bay in honour of his friend and benefactory Vice-admiral Sir Isaac Coffin.

The sheltered estuary on the south-western tip of Eyre Peninsula, 700 kilometres west of Adelaide, is well-endowed with launching ramps, jetties and marinas and the shoreline and hinterland are protected by the 29,000ha Coffin Bay National Park and Kellidie Conservation Park.

The parkland, unspoiled beaches and superb seafood underpin Coffin Bay’s increasing popularity as a summer hideaway.

While locals might argue over the merit of the region's individual attractions, there is little doubt that visiting anglers find the local fishing grounds irresistible. No matter whether you prefer to fish off rocks, in the surf, from a boat or a jetty, Coffin Bay has what it takes in the quest for such popular varieties as whiting, salmon, flathead, snapper, tommy ruffs, trevally or garfish.
