About the Eyre Peninsula

The Eyre Peninsula is a large region that stretches from the steel town of Whyalla, to the border of Western Australia and the Gawler Ranges in the north. The largest towns are Port Lincoln in the south, Whyalla in the north-east, and Ceduna in the north-west, which are all serviced by regular flights to Adelaide.

The region is known as Australia’s Seafood Frontier due to its huge variety of seafood. However, it is also home to a number of diverse landscapes – from uncrowded, pristine sandy beaches and rugged clifftops, to the plains of the Nullarbor, the outback, and agricultural farmland.

Some of the most unique experiences in Australia can be found on the Eyre Peninsula. From swimming with sea lions, giant cuttlefish and dolphins, to farm-to-table food experiences, four-wheel driving, fishing and big wave surfing – there is something for everyone to enjoy in this natural playground. During the winter months, visitors also flock to the area to see migrating southern right whales and their calves.

Fun Fact: The Eyre Peninsula has the only shark cage diving experience in Australia.
