The Eyre Peninsula stretches 1,000 kilometres from Whyalla in the east to the Western Australian border, and 400 kilometres from the Gawler Ranges in the north to Port Lincoln in the south.

The region is known for its 2,000 kilometres of ruggedly beautiful coastline however, vast desert plains, the Gawler Ranges and a hinterland of golden grain are a fascinating contrast to towering cliffs and sandy bays.
The wildlife, like the landscape, is unique from whales and wombats to wedge-tail eagles.

The region offers the ultimate in ''escape the stress'' holiday experiences:

-Witness Southern Right Whales play with their young at the Head of Bight.
-Swim with dolphins and sea lions at tranquil Baird Bay.
-Sleep under the stars in a wilderness national park.
-Charter a yacht or take a walk along a deserted beach.
-Listen to the line sing as a fighting salmon takes the bait.
-Learn about the region's early explorers, tall ships and mining history.
