Where is the Eyre Peninsula?

Situated between the Great Australian Bight and the Spencer Gulf, the Eyre Peninsula is located to the south of the Gawler Ranges. Most famously it’s the home of Port Lincoln and Coffin Bay. Once you’ve arrived after your Adelaide to Eyre Peninsula bus tour there are a number of things to see and do in what could be dubbed the adventure capital of South Australia.

Coffin Bay: If you’re a fan of oysters, there is a big chance you’ve had more than a few dozen from Coffin Bay. Set on the pristine waters at the south of the Eyre Peninsula, Coffin Bay oysters are renowned around the world for their size and quality. You can even take a tour of an oyster farm by boat before sampling some of the beautiful products and washing them down with sparkling wine from local producers.

Port Lincoln: If you love oysters you’re also probably a bit of a foodie and Port Lincoln offers some of the best seafood on the planet because it’s home to the largest commercial fishing fleet in the southern hemisphere. Local award-winning restaurants focus on the freshest local produce available paired with quality wines from South Australia’s Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Eden Valley and McLaren Vale to name a few. There is a restaurant to suit every taste.

Adventure: If you’re feeling a little adventurous after your Adelaide to Eyre Peninsula bus tour, you could visit some wildlife like koalas and kangaroos or go kitesurfing, deep-sea fishing or book a whale watching tour.

Great whites: Marine life off the coast of Port Lincoln includes sea lions and great white sharks. The Eyre Peninsula is famous for cage diving, putting you up close and personal with the amazing sea life and offers a number of tours and charters to do just that. Cave diving with great whites is synonymous with the Eyre Peninsula.

Wonders of nature: If swimming with sharks isn’t really your thing, there are a number of beautiful walks around the beaches and National Parks within the Eyre Peninsula which take in the picturesque landscape of rugged cliffs, beautiful waterways and spectacular sand dunes.
