Start off with a visit to Kingston National Trust Museum, a facility that features an impressive collection of memorabilia from the past. Some of the items that you can expect to see include housewares, prams, shop scales, typewriters, and telephones.

History enthusiasts will be fascinated to learn that the museum also features aboriginal artefacts. A tour of the museum takes about two hours, so set aside some time in your itinerary for a trip back in time.

Make your way to the Cape Jaffa Lighthouse located at Marine Parade. After many years of use, the lighthouse was moved from its original position at the rocky area offshore to its present location where it is a popular tourist attraction. It now functions as a museum, providing invaluable insight into the region’s rich maritime history. The lighthouse also offers a glimpse into the life led by the lighthouse keepers.

The drive from Pinks Beach to Cape Jaffa is particularly scenic, and it’s also worth stopping by to see the commercial lobster shipping fleet as well as the historic jetty, marina, and Lighthouse Cottage Ruins.

Other fun activities to engage in while touring Pinks Beach include golfing at the Kingston South East Golf Club, seafood at Lacepede Seafood as well as Wangolina Station.

Accommodation is also available, and two of the most popular locations are the Crown Inn Hotel and Lacepede Bay Motel. For camp lovers, there is also the option of camping at sites located along Pines Beach Road. These sites are easily accessible from the beach and have ample room for a caravan. Parking is also available.

Pinks Beach is about an hour and 45 minutes’ drive from Mount Gambier. It’s just a few minutes away from Mount Scott Conservation Park.
