Eyre Peninsula

The Eyre Peninsula lives and breathes the sea. While there’s plenty to taste and explore on land, it’s also one of the best places in the world to get up close to incredible sea creatures great and small. Swim with dolphins at Baird Bay, wild cuttlefish in Whyalla or dive with great white sharks (if you’re game!).

Stay on the surface and throw in a line with fishing charters and tours offering the chance to reel in your own lunch in Tumby Bay and throughout the peninsula.
