Introducing Eyre Peninsula & The West Coast
The vast, straw-coloured triangle of Eyre Peninsula is Australia's big-sky country, and is considered by galloping gourmands to be the promised land of seafood. Meals out here rarely transpire without the option of trying the local oysters, tuna and whiting. Sublime national parks punctuate the coast, along with world-class surf breaks and lazy holiday towns, thinning out as you head west towards the Great Australian Bight, the Nullarbor Plain and Western Australia.
Eyre Peninsula's photogenic wild-western flank is an important breeding ground for southern right whales, Australian sea lions and great white sharks (the scariest scenes of Jaws were shot here). There are some memorable opportunities to encounter these submariners along the way.
