Eyre Peninsula

 

South Australia

 

The Spencer Gulf borders the eastern side of the Peninsula along which are located a number of small coastal towns with sandy beaches and excellent fishing opportunities. In contrast to the sheltered waters of the Spencer Gulf, the west coast is exposed to the full force of the Southern Ocean. This area offers some of the most spectacular rugged coastal scenery in Australia. The main town in this area is Ceduna, an excellent base for experiencing the coastal scenery, superb fishing and water activities. The hinterland of the Eyre Peninsula offers picturesque hills, vast grain growing tracts and agricultural areas - producing over 10% of Australia's wheat crop. Much of the region remains untouched by development and is set aside as reserves, parks and native bushland.
