The Eyre Peninsula’s eastern side has calm beaches and the warm waters of the Spencer Gulf. The west coast has spectacular cliffs, long, white, sandy beaches and brilliant blue water. Under big blue skies, the roads stretch through farming plains, raked vineyards, untamed wilderness and national parks.
Head north to some of the most beautiful wild land you could ever see. Created by ancient volcanoes, this is true outback Australia. These are lands our Indigenous people have treasured for thousands of years.
Experienced surfers flock to the Eyre Peninsula’s deserted surf beaches. Outdoor adventurers visit for big game fishing and shark cage diving.
The Eyre Peninsula is Australia’s “Seafood Frontier”, with world-class seafood on offer at our many fine restaurants. Matched with regional wine, it’s pure indulgence.
Today the Parnkalla (east), Nauo (south), Kookatha (mid-north) and Wirangu clans (west coast) live around the towns of Port Lincoln, Ceduna and Yalata.
Be prepared to drive though. The Eyre Peninsula is vast, with more than 2000 kilometres of coastline. Fly from Adelaide to one of our three regional airports or load up the car and take a leisurely drive across the Eyre Peninsula.
While you’re here, do the once in a lifetime drive across the Nullarbor, one of the great wilderness areas. Stop along the way to watch whales and their calves frolic in the shadows of towering, wave ravaged cliffs.
Elsewhere, explore the densely forested national parks. Take the children to the Spencer Gulf. Teach them how to bait a hook. Swim with sea lions and spend time unhurried by routines and expectations.
Allow a local guide to show you around the Eyre Peninsula, unlocking the many secrets of this region. They know where to spot the native wildlife, can help you find the freshest seafood and will show you the hidden places which make the Eyre Peninsula special. There’s a host of tour operators who will gladly arrange your touring and travel arrangements, leaving you with some of the best experiences you’ll ever have.
Camp in complete isolation or enjoy top-class accommodation, only minutes from the wilderness.
Look out for the Visitor Information Centres in Port Lincoln, Whyalla, Elliston and Ceduna. Just look for the blue sign with a yellow “i” on it. The centres will supply you with brochures, maps and plenty of advice to ensure you get the most out of your holiday.
The Eyre Peninsula, it’s a holiday like no other.
