To the east, the Eyre Peninsula is flanked by the stunning scenes of the Spencer Gulf, and to the west it is hugged tightly by the Great Australian Bight. To the north, the Gawler Ranges stretched out in a show of jutting peaks and rolling plateaus.

This part of South Australia is extremely photogenic, boasting incredible sea views across the coast and an amazing selection of scenery in the hinterland. For the most part, though, visitors flock here to catch a glimpse of the southern right whales, as well as Australian sea lions and some of the country’s deadliest creatures – great white sharks. Diving and snorkelling opportunities are rife here, where you can get up close and personal with a magnificent collection of underwater life.

Back on land, there are numerous walks that take you along the cliff edges, promising jaw-dropping views out across some of Australia’s most rugged seascapes.
