Haycock Point, a much-photographed volcanic outcrop, separates North Carrickalinga and South Carrickalinga beaches.Tjilbruke's trail follows the coastline through Carrickalinga.HistoryGeorge Lewis subdivided Carrickalinga in 1958. He is remembered in the naming of Lewis Road, whilst the Town Clerk of the District Council of Yankalilla, Tom Lyddon, has Lyddon Place named after him. The original sales agent, Cliff Hawkins, placed a flagpole on the hill adjoining Solitude Drive, which remains in place today.
