|BEST TIME TO VISIT|
Spring – Autumn
2 – 3 hours +
3km return from Cobbler Hill Picnic Area
Blowhole Beach in Deep Creed is an amazing little surf beach hidden deep in an undeveloped valley on the southern coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula! Correction.. AMAZING little surf beach hidden deep in the valley of a conservation park where kangaroos roam freely. And you can get to it in less than two hours drive from Adelaide CBD! We made the trip from Victor Harbour, which took just under an hour.
Being that our vehicle wasn’t a 4WD, we had to leave it at the Cobbler Hill Picnic Area and take the scenic foot route down. The hike is 1.5km and pretty steep in parts. But you are rewarded visually 10 times over. There are three rest points along the track with small wooden seats built in the most perfect coast gazing positions. Almost like whoever built them wanted you to stop and bask in your surroundings. We saw a few kangaroos along the trail, which I of course tried to photograph.
We reached the bottom car park and whilst the waters were enticing, we decided to make our way down to the golden sand. We laid our towels out to soak in some of those warm rays. I fell asleep on my stomach then hastily woke up with two half dead ‘pins-and-needle’ arms. Without too much thought I stood up instantly and unsteadily made my way towards the ocean, which looking back wasn’t the smartest thing I’ve done. And after soaking in the warmth of the sun for the past however long, a little bit of a shock to the system but I couldn’t resist Moana’s calling (Moana translating to ocean in both Maori and Hawaiian).
Once out of the water, we began scouting the shore to see if there was anyone we could hitch a ride back uphill with. We didnt want to interrupt anyone so we packed our things and just as we stood up, a guy who to the right of us began to pack up his stuff. Zade went in to go suss the situation and as soon as he smiled I knew it was a yes. I mean, she could have asked him for the keys to his truck and his credit card and he still would have smiled and said yes. Jokes aside, he was a really nice guy, recently moved to SA from NSW who was just out to enjoy his day off. I can’t remember Ol’ mates name but thanks for the lift bro, we appreciate it.
If we ever go back to Deep Creek (which I’m sure we will) I’d like to explore the coast a little more along the Heyson Trail towards Cape Jervis and who knows maybe we’ll even find a hidden blowhole. So if you’re feeling a little adventurous and looking for somewhere different to get your feet wet then we would definitely recommend Blowhole Beach and it’s downhill hike!
