The Eyre Peninsula [1] is a coastal region of South Australia offering some spectacular holiday experiences - particularly wildlife interactions.

You can have unforgettable sea adventures, like swimming with sea lions at Baird Bay [2], cage diving with Great White Sharks [3] at Port Lincoln (Australia's Seafood Capital), and even Swimming with Tuna [4].

At Head of Bight [5], it's the perfect vantage point for spotting giant whales as they undertake their annual migration through the Southern Ocean. Each year from May to October, this stretch of the Nullarbor Plain coastline becomes a free range creche for Southern Right Whales. Up to 60 of them annually migrate out of the Southern Ocean to these traditional breeding grounds and nursery; by the time they depart in spring, around 20 new calves will be ready for summer in the Antartica.

The Eyre Peninsula is home to national parks, ancient caves, and the Nullarbor Plain - the vast, treeless plain that has fascinates anyone with an explorer's spirit.

Follow the Australian Seafood and Aquaculture Trail [6], which leads to you great seafood dining experiences, and allows you to gain insights into the seafood industry too.
