Pretty but...

The opportunity to see Whalers Way should not be missed. The rugged scenery, flora and fauna is beautiful. We picked up a key from the local tourist bureau along with a map and a few tips from the local girl. She was spot on when she said allow for three to four hours to see everything and we would have... More

We spent hours and hours exploring the tip of the Eyre Peninsula. Amazing views, reasonably good dirt road,bit rough in places, but not horrific. The signage needs updating as some sign are hard to read, bit weather beaten.

The views are amazing. We had a 4WD but plenty were driving in 2WD. If you drive to the end of the track you do not need a permitted. There is a stair well that will take you to the beach or you can look at the views from the top of the cliff. We saw dolphins swimming in the... More

This is a National Park style drive but set up on private property extending along the coast of the Southern end of the Eyre Peninsula. It contains some truly spectacular views. If you are fit and able do not miss the fairly steep climb down the cliff to the Old Whaleman's Grotto. You will need a good three hours to... More

My friends brother, a Port Lincoln local, took us out on one of the best days ever. He knows the best spots to look out and it was perfect. My friend, his sister, wanted him to take us in a cave where he goes to take photos. Here are some of the amazing photos I took on the day. From... More

Stand at the Southernmost part of the Eyre Peninsula and look out over the Southern Ocean! This drive has parking spots at some of the natural highlights which are worth a visit on foot. At the far end is the spectacular Theakstone Crevasse, both dangerous and fascinating.
