Eyre Peninsula: Overview

Eyre Peninsula offers the ultimate escape from the stresses of modern day living. If your holiday preference is for unspoiled beauty in nature then this is the place to come. You can enjoy fishing, sailing, diving, surfing and swimming. Eyre Peninsula is probably best known for its 2000km of ruggedly beautiful coastline and superb beaches while the regions hinterland provides a dramatic contrast with wheat fields, the desert landscape of the Nullarbor Plain and the spectacular granite outcrops at Streaky Bay, Minnipa and Wudinna.

Things to do? why not join the hundreds of whale watchers from around the world, who migrate to the Bunda Cliffs at the Head of Bight between June and October every year. In the waters below, amazingly visible from the high cliffs, 60 or more Southern Right Whales give birth to and nurture their young. At Baird Bay, with the guidance of tour guides you can experience the thrill of swimming with curious dolphins and sea lions.

You can go fishing or blue water sailing, there are plenty of opportunities to hire a yacht or charter a boat and the Spencer Gulf and Bight waters teem with snapper, King George whiting and other fish.
