Hillocks Drive

Hillocks Ocean Pod is situated at Hillocks Drive. Hillocks Drive embraces several kilometres of spectacular, rugged coastline, interspersed with quiet, sandy beaches and rock-pools. A photographer's delight and haven from the pressures of city and suburban living. Hillocks Drive has been a farming property for generations where grey kangaroos are seen at dusk and the Western Pygmy possums scamper over eucalypt blossom collecting nectar.

A sea world playground awaits you. Swim snorkel, paddle and dive amongst rock pools, rocky ledges and pristine open waters, or simply bask on the spectacular sandy beaches. Observe fish, whales and dolphins in their natural habitat. A popular area for surf and rock fishing on Yorke Peninsula, catching Salmon, Mulloway, Tommy Ruff, Sweep and Mullet to name just a few.

Hillocks is home to the rare and endangered Hooded Plover, Malleefowl, Western Whipbird and Diamond Fire Tail. An expansive haven for enthusiasts to view coastal and bushland birds.

Soaking winter rains bring the succession of native flowers and orchids. Visit Hillocks in spring to see wildflowers at their best including Wattle, Tempeltonia and Lilac. The area is home to 14 different native orchids and the unique carnivorous sundew.

Hillocks Drive is situated 6kms from the Foul Bay boat ramp, 14kms from Marion Bay and 16kms from Innes National Park

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the pod. Beautiful views and good location. Unfortunately it rained one night and the leaky roof kept us away that night. Otherwise great place

Another world.

  • 5 of 5

I loved my two day stay here. A wonderful location. Breathtakingly beautiful. The pod was cozy and comfortable with a million dollar view of wild and unspoilt beaches. A truly magical and special place. A must for lovers of wild life and unspoilt places.
