Around an hour’s drive from Adelaide, the Yorke is an incredible coastal destination that offers pristine beaches and amazing views. Common activities on the Yorke include surfing, snorkelling, fishing and bush camping. If you can’t decide which part of the peninsula you’d like to visit, the Innes National Park down south is highly recommended.
Situated on the tip of the Eyre Peninsula, Port Lincoln is commonly known as the ‘seafood capital of Australia.’ Views from Port Lincoln overlook beautiful Boston Bay, with the captivating Lincoln National Park nearby. If you’re keen for a slice of adventure in the water, you can swim with sea lions in Port Lincoln or even go shark cage-diving (aim to book in advance).
Campervanning is easy here too and there are plenty of camping parks available.
The Nullarbor is one of South Australia’s most incredible destinations and the coastline here is spectacular. Travelling along the Eyre Highway will take you through Port Augusta and across into the Nullarbor National Park, near the Western Australia border. Here, massive cliffs give way to extraordinary views of the Great Australian Bight and if you time your trip right, you might just get to watch the whales as they breed and give birth!
