Eyre peninsula – SA

After leaving Adélaïde I visited the Eyre peninsula along the coast.

  • From Adelaide to Port Augusta

Before reaching the Eyre peninsula I made a few stops. Unfortunately Bumbunga Lake was dry (it’s a pink lake). So my first stop was the Snowtown silo!

Then the one of Wirrabara, this one is a real favorite!!

I then went to sleep on a free camp which offers a great sunrise!

  • The east coast of the Eyre peninsula

The next morning I stopped at Whyalla. Dolphins come to the harbor (unfortunately fed by fishermen). I could see one very closely so! And I took the opportunity to take a free shower ;).

The road on this side is not of great interest. I just stopped for a little break at Turnbull.

What I absolutely wanted to see was Fishery beach. It’s all at the end but it’s worth the detour, it’s magnificent!

  • The west coast of the Eyre peninsula

Going up the west coast, I first stopped at Greenly beach rockpool. There is a huge empty beach right next to it.

Then to Locks well beach. It seems that dolphins come to the edge of this beach but I have not seen one that day!

In order not to dawdled on the peninsula I did not make the detour to Point Labatt but there is a priori a colony of sea lion at this place! I had already seen them in the catlins in New Zealand. Instead I stopped to see the Murphy’s haystacks. It’s pretty impressive!

I then stopped at the smoky bay jetty but unfortunately the weather was not really on my side!

After that I took the road to Nullarbor ;).
