The coastline of the Eyre Peninsula, carved out by the full force of the Southern Ocean is unique and diverse with rugged rock transformations, sheltered bays, towering cliffs along the Great Australian Bight, long sandy beaches and arid desert. It is often referred to the peninsula of parks with nearly half its area set aside as reserves, parks and native bushland.
This region of immense landscapes, and a wildlife haven, stretches 1000 kilometres from the large town of Whyalla to the remote border of Western Australia, taking in the calm waters of the Spencer Gulf and the wild seas of the Great Australian Bight. Fishing and surfing spots here are among the best in the world. Wildlife, wildflowers, coastal scrub and low hills overlook the eastern reaches: in the west a vast, treeless plain and the spectacular sea cliffs of the Nullabor take over.
