[edit] Location

On the beach north of Port Willunga, best accessed from Tuitt Road. Looks like there are some geocaches around the area, too.

[edit] Plan

Cycling down from the Noarlunga Centre station (~1 hour ride) from the train arriving at 12:17 or 12:47.

[edit] Expedition

Left a little bit later (to the tune of 2 hours) than planned because of laziness. Took the train from Oaklands to Noarlunga, spent a while roaming around Noarlunga on my bike (having forgotten how it was laid out) finding the way to Commercial Road, then took a detour through Seaford and Moana—initially looking for a public toilet, but found a nice bike path along the coast to Moana too. Locked my bike at a carpark overlooking the beach, then walked down the final 200 or so metres. Arrived on the beach right at the traditional 4 PM meetup time (completely by chance, not that I expected to meet anyone), then looked for a geocache around where I put my bike, but left quickly because it was getting dark (early sunsets snuck up on me).
