"A sizeable town isolated in the Eastern edge of the Nullarbor"

It is located on Murat Bay. Stunning coastline outside of the town. Great outback Settlements such as Penong, Coorabie and Fowlers Bay to explore your the West. Ceduna itself is a clicky and peculiar town. Friendly enough, however people keep a certain reserve. The wider community has a cultural divide which I found challenging to deal with. It is hot in summer and cool in winter. It has a good Supermarket, Whitegoods stores. It lacks with cafes or restaurants. The hotel is a nice building, but would never eat there. I received food poisoning there once. If you require a shop wider than supermarket, hardware or white goods, it requires a 404 km trip to Port Lincoln or a 454km trip to Whyalla. If you need a cafe fix you have the touristy and upmarket town of Streaky Bay 110km south of Ceduna. In saying that the Ceduna Bakery, Mozies Roadhouse or On The Run do decent coffees if required. If you are not a local I suggest being careful working in government departments linked to the district. It’s the Wild West and incredibly clicky. I experienced a bullying culture rife within certain sectors. I can’t mention which one, just advise to be aware it exists here. If I was a local I’m sure it would be a great place to live. If you are not I can recommend the remote settlements west of Ceduna. Some of the most amazing people live west of the main town! If you are renting I would suggest investing in CLR scale remover to stop calcification of bathroom wet areas. The real estate agents are particularly fussy about maintenance of landlord’s properties. They will charge you a lot money in cleaning if calcified scale builds up. It’s due to the poor tap water quality here. I got charged $300 for calcium streaks I couldn’t remove. Only to find out you need CLR to remove calcium scum, so as I hinted you can have a tough time with extremely fussy agents if you are renting here. It’s worthwhile buying if you decide settling in Ceduna. I left Ceduna a year ago and didn’t look back.

Pros:
Fishing
Beach lifestyle
Quiet
Friendly
Gorgeous coastline
Families
Couples
Entrepreneurial opportunities

Cons
No good for singles
Lack of shops or conveniences
Isolation
Clicky
Fussy agents for tenants
Expensive rentals (considering isolation)
Town gossiping
Not recommended for non locals working in public sector
Wild West attitude ( we do things differently here)

Unranked Streets in Ceduna
