Eyre Peninsula Holidays

Its combination of aquatic adventure, sprawling beaches and sensational seafood makes a holiday to the Eyre Peninsula a memorable one.

The triangular land mass at the base of South Australia is the country's lesser-known adventure playground. Bordered to the north by the Gawler Ranges National Park and sharing its wild coastline with the eastern Spencer Gulf and the Great Australian Bight, the Eyre Peninsula is a perfect self-drive destination.

Spend weeks exploring the sheltered coves and bays of the coastal national parks. Stop off at secluded beaches and head to the clifftops to spot the majestic southern right whales migrating along the coastline between May and October.

There's plenty of fun to be had in the water too. Join the playful Australian sea lions and dolphins in the shallows around Port Lincoln. Or for an extra adrenaline rush, get up close to a great white shark cage diving in the ocean waters further south.

What's more, the Eyre Peninsula is Australia’s true seafood frontier. Over 65 percent of the nation’s catch is reeled in or plucked from the region’s waters. It's a seafood fans dream, where meals out pose endless opportunities to try the local oysters, tuna or whiting. Here you can experience Australia’s freshest catch at the source - and even catch it yourself.

On land, kangaroos, emus and other native species roam in abundance. A four-wheel drive safari in the geologically-blessed Gawler Ranges is the best way to see these unique creatures in their natural habitat. Though stumbling upon a mob of kangaroos on your morning beach stroll is far from a rare occurrence on an Eyre Peninsula holiday.
