A great catch of Bluebone Try catching a delicious mud crab Traditional damper baking

There is always plenty to do at Port Smith.  Maybe you would like to take a stroll along the beach and look at the shells or for those of you who like adventure and a good feed, mud crabbing might be for you.

If you have good binoculars you can spot Whales from the cliffs during June and July. If you want to see them closer you will need a boat as they are a few kilometres off the coast.

Just for fun the park has a nine-hole bush style golf course that is a challenge you should not miss with friendly competition most days of the main tourist season.  There are very few courses in Australia where you can enjoy a friendly game of golf including club hire for only two dollars.

Port Smith also operates a rehabilitation and release area for injured or orphaned kangaroos and wallabies.  This is a huge but very rewarding task.  Once the animals have fully recovered or have reached adulthood, they are released back into their native environment.

We offer 2 person fishing kayaks that can be hired just to have a look around the Lagoon or to go fishing. No boat licence required.  If boats arent your thing there is always fishing from the beach or rocks.

Port Smith Caravan Park runs a boat service every 2nd day (weather permitting) that takes you across the Lagoon to the main channel.  Boat service is only available June/July/August. If you dont want to fish, you can walk around the area and up to the cliffs to take in the scenery or take photos.  If there is time you may be taken on a short trip around the area.  The cost is a donation of $2.00, again in support of the RFDS.  The time of the trip is posted on the notice board at the shop.

For the nature lover, there is bird watching and many interesting species of wild flowers and fauna.

Port Smith is a photographers dream, the red pindan soil, the turquoise waters and the interesting flora and fauna make for fantastic photos. Click here to view our Photo Gallery.

In June, July and August join us for a "Park Dinner" on a Thursday night.  Dine on fresh fish and chips.  We have a live band (local Bidyadanga boys) who join us for dinner, games, raffles, dancing and lots of fun. The proceeds go to the RFDS. There are prizes for various activities throughout the night.

At the end of the day you can sit back and watch the gorgeous sunsets from the lagoon or cliffs
