    Pocket Guide: Eyre Peninsula

    On South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula, you can enjoy the ocean your way: swim with sea lions, fish from a tinny, surf at secluded beaches, cage dive with sharks or simply chomp some fresh squid at a restaurant. Port Lincoln is the largest town in the Eyre Peninsula, and the seafood capital of Australia, so there’s no need to go hungry. If you need a break from the beach, the Eyre Peninsula also has the other end of the spectrum: dusty ochre-coloured national parks best explored in a 4WD. Book your Eyre Peninsula hotel with us for an earth and sea adventure to remember!

    History

    The Eyre Peninsula has been home to Aboriginal people for thousands of years, and the region has a number of traditional languages. Dutchman Pieter Nuyts was the first European to discover the area in 1627, but it was Matthew Flinders who spent nearly three months charting the coast in 1802. In the process, eight members of his crew drowned at Memory Cove. The region was named after Edward John Eyre, the first explorer to make the journey from Adelaide to Albany, along with his Aboriginal friend Wylie.

    Things to do

    Fancy a swim? Maybe you’d like some sea lions with that? Take a half-day tour to Seal Cove to meet these creatures in their natural habitat. If the seals are too cute for you, jump into a cage and come face to face with Great White sharks. The cage is toughened, but are you tough enough to brave it?

    Surf at west coast beaches like Venus Bay, or make the trek to somewhere a bit more remote like Cactus Beach and Fowlers Bay for a quieter surfing experience. Venus Bay and Locks Well are also excellent spots to fish at.

    Hit Port Lincoln for seafood restaurants, art galleries and museums, or wineries. Visit Whyalla and take a tour of the former mine at Iron Knob, and check out Elliston’s heritage-listed jetty and the impressive ocean views and sculptures from Clifftop Drive.

    Coffin Bay National Park has beaches that are only accessible by 4WD, large sand dunes and coastal cliffs. Gawler Ranges National Park is a different experience: red dirt, rocky gorges, gullies, and rock formations like Organ Pipes, which formed from volcanic activity over 1500 million years ago. Use Ceduna as the last major stop on your journey west to The Nullabor, an almost treeless area of dusty, arid country.

    Dining

    The Southern hemisphere’s largest fishing fleet is based on the Eyre Peninsula, and they’re serious about seafood. There are fish and chip shops with top quality whiting, fancy restaurants with fresh oysters paired with wine and ocean views, and fisherman’s markets where you can get your goods fresh.

    "Good modern Hotel"
    We were pleasantly suprised with the large room modern facilities and comfortable conditions, it was a bit of a waste of time having to collect the room key from the other Quest Whyalla Norrie. From the street the building looks a little old but the internals are very well renovated and excellent conditions, good off street parking and very reasonably priced.

    "Large Motel metres from the sea. "
    We have stayed at the Foreshore Motel many times. It is easy to find, has convenient parking next to your room and is always clean and tidy. The owners and staff are welcoming and competent. The restaurant has an adequate menu and wine list and the food was good without being spectacular. The room decor is dated but the owners have commenced a gradual rejuvenation program.
