EXPERIENCE THE EYRE PENINSULA

The Eyre Peninsula opens its arms to the weary overlander no matter the season. Set your sights on the Nullarbor Plain’s endless horizons or shelter behind dunes on the West Coast near fertile waters and swim with bottlenose dolphins at Baird Bay. Marvel at a dry salt lake past the glorious Gawler Ranges or head to East Eyre and dive among cuttlefish and seahorses in the gentle Spencer Gulf. If you’re looking for adventure, take it up a notch and dive with sharks at Port Lincoln.

With well-maintained roads, camping and caravan parks on absolute beach frontage, rocky routes and beach driving opportunities, Eyre Peninsula packs in plenty for the long haul!
