At $30 per car this is a tad expensive when there are only two in the vehicle but we did see the fur seals in their natural habitat. Roads are a bit rough in places but by and large they are accessible to most cars.

We didn't explore enough to review but the Oyster Bay beach is a must to visit. Beautifully white pristine sand with crystal clear water

What a beautiful part of South Australia, loved the rugged coastline, crystal clear water and white sandy beaches. Dirt road which is relatively good.

A nice scenic drive along the west coast of the Eyre Peninsular. Takes about an hour. Roads whilst being dirt in some places are in general good condition

If you love rugged coastlines, spectacular scenery. And just nature at its best, this is a must see. Take care around the cliff edges and stay in the marked areas. The blowhole is awesome on days when the sea is rough. Love this area

This privately owned scenic and historic area is a very worthwhile day trip from Port Lincoln. The cliff top views were spectacular, with many places to sit and rest, enjoying a cuppa and nature's wonders. The map provided with the entry fee ($13 per car) is a good guide to the area. Unfortunately the private owner does not maintain the... More

Spectacular coastlines all the way around this drive,We spent a full day here exploring this site took our thermos of hot coffee and packed lunch and found plenty of places to have morning tea and lunch with a view.

Spectacular coastline scenery, but the place has a sense of being in need of a fairly serious upgrade. We went to the end of the road, wanting to find what we'd been told was a lovely beach: even though we investigated a vehicle track, which ended at a cliff, and walked up and around a couple of sandhills, we couldn't...

The quiet, the views, the history, the fantastic flora, the well kept roads, the more than adequate facilities that do not detract from the natural environment.

No warnings were given to us about the terrible driving conditions. We are in a passenger car, no 4WD or AWD and we had to skip half of the self drive tour because of the terrible, dangerous driving conditions for fear of damaging our car. Not safe for children as there is no fencing or safety precautions at all. Shame... More
