Once close to the coast and heading east the traveler reaches the town of Ceduna. Or if having travelled west from Port Augusta, Ceduna is the port of call.

After the long stretches of the Nullarbor, Ceduna is a welcome sight. Proper shops, commercial activity, Industry and very friendly people ensure Ceduna is a great town.

There was a whaling station on nearby St. Peter's Island during the 1850s.

Ceduna was the site of a major satellite telecommunications facility operated by the Overseas Telecommunications Commission. This facility was a major employer in the town until the facility became redundant due to technological changes.

On 4 December 2002, Ceduna received international attention when the path of totality of a solar eclipse passed directly over the town. Though the day had at times been partly cloudy, the southwestern sky where the Sun and Moon were located was clear at the time of the total solar eclipse, late in the afternoon. Temperatures were cool that day.

The Hotel in Ceduna is a product of a rebuild. The Hotel at Thearnard has a little more character.

The Churches in Ceduna have or are nearing the centenaries.

The Ceduna War Memorial is located near the RSL at the western fringe of the town.

The Ceduna Museum is located near the main highway junction. The Museum looks the goods.

Be sure to visit Pnkie Point, the views and silos.

Allow a day or more at Ceduna and delight in the place.
