Eyre Peninsula

The Eyre Peninsula is a giant triangle of stunning landscapes and one-of-a-kind experiences. Its 2,300km of coastline produces some of the best seafood and unique aquatic experiences in the world. Further inland you’ll find a land of ancient geological formations, expansive salt lakes, and native wildlife in huge numbers. The Eyre Peninsula is serviced by three airports – Port Lincoln, Ceduna and Whyalla — offering daily flights to and from Adelaide. Driving from Adelaide to Whyalla takes about five hours. The Eyre Peninsula is home to less than 4% of South Australia’s population, making it an ideal environment for native wildlife to thrive. The Eyre Peninsula produces over 30% of South Australia’s grain production and more than 60% of its seafood. The region’s main industries are agriculture, aquaculture, fishing, mining and tourism.

More about the Eyre Peninsula

South Australian Tourism Commission

South Australian Tourism Commiss

The Eyre Peninsula is known for its seafood, harvested from the pristine waters of the Great Australian Bight. Dubbed Australia’s ‘seafood frontier’, it is renowned for its oysters, abalone, King George whiting, southern rock lobster, and blue fin tuna, to name a few. The quality of the seafood is in high demand and is exported around the world. A self-drive trail called the Seafood Frontier provides a gastronomic journey along the coastline to allow visitors to experience the best of Eyre Peninsula’s fresh seafood. The region is fast emerging as a unique culinary destination with world class seafood on offer at many of the restaurants. In the 1800s, French explorer Nicholas Baudin originally named part of the Eyre Peninsula Port du Champagny, after realising the climate would be suited for grape growing. The first commercial vines were planted in 1984 and the region’s first wines were produced in 1991. There are several small, boutique vineyards in lower Eyre Peninsula.
