Ratalang (Basham’s Beach) Regional Park
If you choose to begin at the northern entrance of the park, you will find a collection of interesting structures available to look at dating from the 1840s and ’50s when William Basham ran a farm and trading business here. Interpretive signs tell the story of the family and their stone dairy, fowl shed and animal trough.
Access to the Park is via the car parks at the southern or northern ends, or via the long beach that fronts the Park and cyclists can access the park via the paved Encounter Bikeway Signs near the large car parking area explain the walking tracks and recreational facilities in the conservation park and there are also public toilets available.
The traditional owners called this place Yarluwar Ruwe (Sea Country). It is a beautiful area and has important cultural assets in the form of significant Ngarrindjeri and European heritage, making the area an extremely unique and important time capsule of the past. The Park is open all year round with no entry fee and to help keep this area as beautiful as it is, visitors are encouraged to leave nothing behind but their footprints and take nothing home except memories…
