Travel to the very tip of South Australia and book your stay at one of the seaside towns along the rugged and enigmatic Eyre Peninsula read more...
Pull in at Port Augusta or Port Lincoln
A three and a half hour cruise from Adelaide along the Princes Highway will get you to the eastern point of the Eyre Peninsula, Port Augusta. At the crossroads of the Flinders Ranges and the arid outback, Port Augusta features a selection of motor inns ideal for a stopover before your onward journey.
At the southern tip of the peninsula, Port Lincoln is a great base to explore Australia's so-called "seafood frontier". Stay at the sparkling Marina Hotel for ocean-views of Lincoln Cove, or overlook the untamed bushland from the privacy of your Tanonga Luxury Eco Lodge. Closer to the foreshore, the Port Lincoln hotel has more than 100 rooms offering 4-star comfort.
Why not Whyalla?
At the edge of the Spencer Gulf, Whyalla's industrious history has given way to an identity as a relaxed seaside town. Snorkelers, divers and seafood fanatics descended on Whyalla, often with comfortable walking shoes in tow to take on the 12-kilometre Freycinet Trail or three heritage walking tracks skirting the city.
The Quest Whyalla Playford and Quest Whyalla have you covered no matter what side of town you choose to stay on, with a range of one, two or three bedroom serviced apartments, perfect for those travelling for either business or leisure.
Coastal charm in Ceduna
Tracing the Great Australian Bite, Ceduna is located at the western point of the Eyre Peninsula. One of Ceduna's greatest charms is its proximity to the Nuyts Archipelago just off the coast – a favourite breeding spot for sea lions and playground for dolphins.
When it comes to Eyre Peninsula accommodation, Ceduna's motels, motor inns and roadhouses are a perfect overnight option for travellers choosing to cross the Nullarbor Plain onto Perth, but not before they've eaten their weight in oysters fresh from the grower.
