All about the 6 Day Secrets of Eyre Peninsula Tour

The Eyre Peninsula is unquestionably one of Australia's best-kept secrets. The secret's out on this spectacular Australian coastal playground.

Discover the southwestern coastline and interior of South Australia known as the Eyre Peninsula. This camping tour departs from Adelaide takes in the stunning landforms and wildlife in the region through the Flinders Ranges to the coast. Options are available to go swimming with seals and dolphins or cage dive with Great White Sharks.

You have the opportunity to sandboard on mountainous dunes, take the Locks Well “Staircase to Heaven” coastal walk and see plenty of Koalas and native wildlife at Mikkira Station.

During the day you are going to see and do a lot but when the sun goes down you’ll sleep Aussie bushman style in swags under the billions of stars that make up the Southern Skies and kick back around the campfire with a beer and sharing stories with your new friends. Sleep under the stars surrounded by Koalas in nearly every tree. You even get the chance to see endangered Yellow Footed Rock Wallaby in Warren Gorge. It is these moments that also leave travelers with life long memories. Visit the wonderful Southern Flinders Ranges Alligator and Warren Gorges.

6 Day Secrets of Eyre Peninsula Tour Itinerary - 6 days

  • Day 1 Adelaide to Flinders Ranges National Park
    We head out of the city pretty early on Day 1, stopping for a quick coffee in Clare (a great wine region), and then continuing on to the southern Flinders Ranges National Park. There’ll be time for a stretch of the legs at Alligator Gorge, lunch in Quorn – home of the PichiRichi Railway – and a guided to the top of the ranges at Dutchman’s Stern. Tonight’s campsite is in Warren Gorge; keep your eyes peeled for yellow-footed rock wallabies, which have bounced back from near-extinction.

    Driving time is about 4.5 hours and we’ll walk about 2 hours. Tonight we bush camp at Warren Gorge which has toilets but no showers. Lunch and dinner provided.
  • Day 2 The Eyre Peninsula and Coodlie Park
    Prepare to encounter one of Australia’s best-kept secrets today: the Eyre Peninsula. Composed of incredible red-rock landscapes, a huge diversity of wildlife and very few travellers, this part of the world really feels like your own private piece of paradise. Keep your cameras at the ready for the Big Galah, an eight-metre-high fibreglass structure overlooking the gift shop in the tiny town of Kimba.

    After a quick pit stop for lunch, it’s back on the road to Venus Bay, Talia Caves and the Lake Newland sand dunes (where adrenaline junkies can test out their sand boarding skills). In the afternoon we’ll pull in to Coodlie Park for a night’s stay on a working farm which is also our home base!

    Tonight you will share a meal and stories with travellers from our other tours sleep in our super cool swag huts and shower facilities are available. Please note that tomorrow you will be swapping buses and joining the other group coming from Perth.

    Today we drive approx 450km (5 hours) in total with stops along the way and walk about 1.5 hours. All meals are included.
  • Day 3 Coodlie Park and Baird Bay (swim with sea lions & dolphins)
    This morning we may be joining the group coming from Perth and going to Adelaide, heading off to swim with the ever cheeky and playful sea lions and dolphins at Baird Bay which is just up the road from Coodlie Park. The Eyre Peninsula is an area famed for its watery wildlife and this morning you’ll get the option to swim, snorkel and splash about with playful sea lions and dolphins on a 3-hour cruise. This outsourced adventure done by Baird Bay Eco-tours is an optional experience and at only $160 will be one you will treasure forever .

    Then its onto Murphy’s Haystacks, incredible granite rock formations sculptured into wondrous and weird shapes over millions of years then we head back to Coodlie Park Bush camp for more camp fire stories with your new friends

  • Day 4 Coodlie Park and Mikkira Station
    Motor along the Great Ocean Tourist Drive towards Elliston, checking out the amazing cliffs of Locks Well, then continue on to Port Lincoln for lunch. Stretch your legs with a wander around the town – we’ve put aside an hour here for you to stroll along the foreshore, survey the scenery or kick back with a cool drink in a café. Tonight we camp at Mikkira Station, a private campground surrounded by eucalyptus trees and neighbourly koalas.

    We drive for about four hours today, and walk for one and a half hours. Mikkira Station has toilets and shower facilities. All meals included
  • Day 5 Port Lincoln to Mt Remarkable
    Depending on your love affair with fear, today you’ll either be diving into the world of Great White Sharks or brushing up on local whaling history at Whaler’s Way Conservation Park. Choose shark diving and you’ll be boating out to sea, changing into dive gear and invited to hop in a cage for a meet-up with some real monsters of the deep.

    Choose the way of the Whalers and you’ll be visiting the remains of an old whaling station (where you’ll hopefully spot some kangaroos and emus), lunching in Lincoln National Park and stopping by Glen Forest Wildlife Park to hand-feed a few critters. Tonight we set up camp in Mt Remarkable.

    Today we drive for about four hours, and walk for two, if not doing the cage dive. We bush camp with toilet facilities at Mt Remarkable.
  • Day 6 Mt Remarkable to Adelaide
    This overland adventure ends up on arrival in Adelaide. There’s no accommodation provided tonight, and make sure you have booked your accommodation prior to departure.
