There are multiple ways to stay entertained and relaxed during your stay at Streaky Bay. Whether that be at the Pod[e] property, in the Streaky Bay township or at nearby towns and attractions. Below you will find our favourite things to do and places to visit.
We encourage our guests to go on a bushwalk in the scrub located on the Pod[e] property. Here is where you will experience seclusion, calmness and a true connection with the environment around you. There is an abundance of native flora and fauna to see and observe, please keep a respectful distance from the wildlife as they are unaccustomed to human interaction.
The scrub covers quite a large area so please take note of where you enter as there is limited phone reception. Please refer to the property map for directions and more information.
Included in your stay is the E-bike & Coast Experience.
This experience includes the use of two e-bikes (helmets included) four sets of snorkelling equipment (ranging from foot-size's 4 to 12) and two bodyboards. We also provide a suggested self-guided tour of the area leading from Mulla Mulla to the West Coast Bays Marine Park at Yanerbie. You will find a hard copy of the tour directions attached to the front of each e-bike.
You are welcome to either use this equipment to explore the 300 acres of Pod[e] property or venture further afield onto the Westall Way Loop and beyond. A cooler bag and picnic rug are stored in the pod for your convenience if you are planning on making a day of your adventure.
If you are the sort of person who enjoys unwinding and relaxing on a holiday you have come to the right place. Being on 300 acres Mulla Mulla offers a peaceful and rejuvenating environment. Slower paced activities include:

Partake in aquatic activities no matter what the season. You can experience snorkelling, swimming,
surfing or just relaxing at a few different locations. Here are a few of our favourites:
Smooth Pool - this is a giant rock pool protected from the surf, the water is generally calm, warm and clear (weather permitting). You can lay around in the rock pools, practise snorkelling in them or explore its numerous habitats. Ideal for families with younger children. Reef shoes are handy as the rocks can sometimes be a little slippery.
High Cliffs – Here you will find wide-ranging views up and down the coast, you will see sea stacks that have developed out of the Southern Ocean and a beach that is well suited for snorkelling,
swimming and fishing.
Granites - Granites is a lagoon-style rock pool ideal for some snorkelling and swimming. This is family friendly however please note access to the beach is via a 110-step stairway from the cliff top car park. Ideal for all water activities and is famous for a good wave out the back. Our favourite locations to surf around the Westall Way Loop is Sceale Bay, Back Beach or Granites.
Use either the bodyboards provided or surfboard hire is available from Killa’s service station in the township.
You will find bountiful fishing at Back Beach, Streaky Bay or Speeds Beach. Both service stations in
Streaky Bay offer an array of fishing equipment and bait. Please take the weather conditions into consideration when planning any water activities.
