Australia'S Must Do Road Trip | Eyre Peninsula, South Australia

Eyre Peninsula, South Australia

The Eyre Peninsula is a triangular peninsula in South Australia. It is bounded on the east by Spencer Gulf, the west by the Great Australian Bight, and the north by the Gawler Ranges. It is named after explorer Edward John Eyre who explored parts of the peninsula in 1839-1841

Whenever we come home to Australia we always try to get out and see a new part of our beautiful backyard, this time we are exploring South Australia with a road trip along the Eyre Peninsula before heading home for Christmas.

After flying into Port Lincoln on the tiniest plane, we checked into our hotel and were already up for an adventure. We jumped in the car and made our way up to Coffin Bay to do one of the most unique oyster tours, literally sea to table as we sat in the bay.

That night we had the tastiest meal at Line and Label, including having one of the new top 20 dishes in the world.

The next morning we got up nice and early to go and swim with sea lions and dolphins and wow – cannot recommend this enough!

On the way back to Port Lincoln, we hit up some beautiful spots including Talia Caves, Coffin Bay National Park and even swam in some natural rock pools alongside the ocean (wow is all we can say!)
