Go next[edit]

Fowlers Bay is the next port to the west. The turnoff is 106km west of Ceduna, then a 20km road (half of it a good dirt road) leads to a sleepy holiday village that was once an important port. Cabins and caravan parking is available and a kiosk. Placards near the jetty tell the story of the town.

Streaky Bay is another small fishing port 30 minutes south of Ceduna.

Totem One obelisk, a monument to the Emu Field nuclear weapons tests.

Ceduna is one of the closest settlements to 1 Emu Field, an extremely remote RAAF nuclear weapons test site where the British government conducted a pair of test explosions in 1953. There is a concrete obelisk at the location, ca. 500 km north-east of Ceduna, which can be visited with RAAF permission. Visitors may find souvenirs in the form of vitrified sand, and the concentric blast rings are still visible. The only way to reach the site is by private transport (car, taxi) and takes ca. 15h.
