Penong is the first town you reach as you travel west from Ceduna. It’s a good ‘watering hole’ before the long journey across the Nullarbor Plain. It offers a pub with beer garden, a couple of stores and a caravan park.

Just south of Penong, you’ll find the highly acclaimed Cactus Beach, where surfers from all over Australia and overseas can be found year-round. Cactus has three perfect surfing breaks – Castles and Cactus both left handers and Caves, a powerful right-hand break.

Although the surrounding land is private property, the owner permits camping in a natural environment. Toilets and bore water showers are provided, and firewood is supplied nightly.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
