If you look at a map of the coastline of South Australia, you will see that it has three significant peninsulas. Our tour of these three peninsulas is designed to give you a greater understanding of everything this spectacular region has to offer. You’ll begin with a stay at picturesque McLaren Vale on the Fleurieu Peninsula, with its outstanding wineries and distilleries. Next, head to the rugged and sparsely populated coastline of the Yorke Peninsula. There will be short walks through stunning National Parks and guided demonstrations at aquaculture farms. Lastly, head to the Eyre Peninsula located on the eastern edge of the Great Australian Bight. There you’ll take a cruise to Fowler Bay during whale season, taking in the pristine beauty and an array of wildlife, and perhaps to spot humpbacks, Southern right whales, seals, and dolphins. With a small group size, you’ll only stay at boutique-style accommodation and seaside properties. Tour starts and ends in Adelaide.

If you look at a map of the coastline of South Australia, you will see that it has three significant peninsulas.

The smallest, Fleurieu Peninsula, is crammed with great dining and wining destinations (it hosts the famous McLaren Vale wine region). It also has a great maritime history, once being the centre of the 1800s Murray River paddle steamer industry. The region boasts incredible natural features, including the Coorong National Park and the Murray Mouth (where the Murray River enters Lake Alexandrina and onto the Southern Ocean).

The middle-sized peninsula, which is similar in shape to the boot of Southern Italy, is our wonderful Yorke Peninsula. The Yorke is known for broad acre farming of high-quality grains including barley, the key ingredient for making beer. The other feature of the Yorke Peninsula is its magnificent coastline. At the “foot” of the Yorke boot lies the scenic Innes National Park. We take advantage of this beautiful coast, staying in stunning beach houses with uninterrupted views over the water to Kangaroo Island. Every Australian should visit this spectacular national park at least once.

The final and largest peninsula is our famous Eyre, known for its amazing seafood and rugged west coast.
It is also know for adventure tourism where you can swim with dolphins, seals, and Great White sharks. We will stick to the more genteel sports of eating oysters and tuna complimented with the odd walk along the deserted white beaches of the national parks and coastlines. Our journey around the Eyre ends at the Great Australian Bight where we will be in time for the annual whale migration season. Each year, Humpback and Southern Right whales (and other marine beauties) head to the upper reaches of the Bight to calve and nurse their young before they head back into the Southern Ocean.

On our Three Peninsulas Tour, we will explore all three peninsulas and feast on the local produce. Our tour begins and ends in Adelaide.
