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 ;).
