Discover the corner of South Australia where the outback meets the ocean
Welcome to the Eyre Peninsula, where wide open skies give way to inviting coastline and an abundance of wildlife roams freely. Discover the best of this inviting slice of South Australia over nine days with the passionate guidance of a local leader. Travel from Adelaide through arid landscapes to Port Augusta, discover the diversity of the Gawler Ranges National Park, look out for southern right whales at the Head of Bight, snap pictures of the iconic Lake Macdonnell and dine on freshly shucked oysters in Coffin Bay. From scenic outback towns to stunning surf spots, this adventure is sure to be one for the books.
Uncover the diverse flora, fauna and formations of the Gawler Ranges National Park, from salt pans to mountains, gorges and the spectacular Organ Pipes.
Spend two evenings at the Scotdesco Aboriginal Community, learn about the history of the settlement and what life looks like today, and keep an eye out for southern hairy-nosed wombats!
Visit the Head of Bight, home to dazzling sand dunes, towering limestone cliffs, and often frequented by southern right whales who use the bight as a breeding ground.
Marvel at the pink and blue hues of Lake Macdonnell, watch the locals catch waves at the surf mecca of Cactus Beach and chill out in the laidback seaside town of Streaky Bay.
Experience a working oyster farm with a local farmer, including a hands-on shucking lesson, and taste the freshest oysters you’ve ever tasted, straight out of the water!
Just as a heads up before you book: this trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
This trip includes time spent travelling in a private vehicle with your group. Extra space can be tight, and conditions may feel a little cramped. It’s all part of the adventure and a great way to get to know your fellow travellers. Please read the itinerary carefully for travel time estimates and ensure you pack light.
