Located just far enough away from bustling city life to retain its pristine beauty, natural environment, and solitude, the Eyre Peninsula offers an experience that will surprise and delight. The Eyre West Coast is known for its spectacular marine parks and dramatic coastline, boasting a number of wildlife encounters where you are able to get in the water with dolphins, seals, or perhaps even Great Whites (!). The Eyre is South Australia’s wide blue sky country. Sublime national parks dot the coastline, along with world-class surf breaks and low-key holiday towns, thinning out as you head west towards the Nullarbor Plain.

Eyres Peninsula’s West Coast is an uncrowded and uniquely different place to explore. Country charm and community pride prevail, along with a desire to showcase the region as an undiscovered travel destination. The major towns of the region make an ideal base for exploring the pristine ocean and rugged coastline. Departing from Port Lincoln, we will follow the Elliston Coastal Trail west along the Great Australian Bight.

Our journey around the Eyre begins in Port Lincoln and stretches to Ceduna, from where we embark on a supported expedition to the protected Nuyts Archipelago Conservation Park. The Park is a marine conservation area located 25 kilometres southeast of Ceduna. The land first received protected status as a fauna conservation reserve proclaimed 16th March 1967. Our remote island-hopping adventure will have us stepping onto footprint-free beaches and observing foreshores with a plethora of wildlife. On our three-night expedition, each day we will explore different islands, beaches, and reefs, enjoying the unique wildlife and vegetation. For avid bird watchers, the Nuyts Archipelago is a sanctuary for a variety of birdlife. The nights are like no other, lying in the comfort of your double swag, on a beach 60 km from the coast, with a million stars lighting up the dark sky.

Our tour begins and ends in Port Lincoln.
