The only limit is your imagination! Nelson is the ideal holiday
spot. Boasting the roaring ocean beach, the calmer estuary beach (where
you can spot a swan or pelican), and the truly magnificent Glenelg
River, of which the last 50km flows gently through the Lower Glenelg
The Lower Glenelg National Park is an ideal place for picnics,
bushwalking, birdwatching, fishing, flat water canoeing, swimming,
snorkelling and water skiing. The Glenelg River and it's surrounding
National Park has a superb array of wildlife. Various fauna includes
kangaroos, red necked wallabies, possums and platypus.
Fishing is plentiful in both the river and off the ocean beach.
Many mulloway, bream and mullet are caught in the river, while schools
of salmon, gummy shark, whiting, mullet and enormous mulloway cruise
just off the surf beach.
The town centre of Nelson is a short 10 minute walk from
Casuarina Cabins, and hosts a pub, post office, general store,
roadhouse, river cruises and canoe hire. A quick two minute walk from the cabins will take
you to the Glenelg river, where there are many jetties from which to
fish, boat ramps to launch vessels and magnificent natural cliff
The 250km Great South-West Walk passes nearby the cabins,
allowing for some great afternoon strolls through the National Park,
alongside the river.
In our own front garden at Casuarina Cabins is a significant
piece of local history - part of the capstan (turntable) which, powered
by horses, used to draw a punt across the river.
Our facilities include sheltered gas BBQ and wood fire and laundry. Linen hire is also available.
Casuarina Cabins is the ideal getaway retreat, with parking for
your boat or trailer right alongside your cabin. We're ideally situated
for walking groups wanting a base camp or a mid-way stop for walkers on
the Great South West walk to "recharge the batteries".
