Travel from Adelaide to the Eyre Peninsula to visit one of South Australia’s most remote regions. Learn to surf and see the local wildlife. See the Itinerary section below for daily activities and optional activities (swimming with great white sharks, anyone?).

Itinerary

Day 1: Adelaide – Flinders Ranges – Warren Gorge (L, D)
Leave Adelaide for a drive into the rugged beauty of the southern Flinders Ranges, where you'll spot abandoned homesteads and weather-beaten red gums against the backdrop of craggy gorges. Travel to the bottom of Alligator Gorge, where rippling sand formations are still visible in this ancient seabed. Follow the line of the heritage Pichi Richi Railway to the outback train town of Quorn. When it's time to call it a day, relax at your Warren Gorge campsite, where you might catch a glimpse of the endangered yellow-footed rock wallaby.

Overnight: Camping in Warren Gorge Conservation Park (toilets only, no shower facilities)

Day 2: Warren Gorge – Eyre Peninsula – Coodlie Park Farm Retreat (B, L, D)

Start the day with a walk through Dutchmans Stern Conservation Park for views of South Australia’s remote west. Travel to the coast at Port Augusta, through Iron Knob, and stop at Kimba for lunch. At Venus Bay, look for dolphins swimming near the shoreline as you walk along the beach. Visit the surf-sculpted formations of Talia Caves, then have fun sandboarding down the Lake Newland dunes. Later, travel to the night’s accommodation at Coodlie Park Farm Retreat, a working farm with a sustainable campground. End the day with a nocturnal nature walk searching for kangaroos, wombats and emus.

Overnight: Camping at Coodlie Park Farm Retreat (toilet and showers facilities)

Day 3: Coodlie Park Farm Retreat (B, L, D)
Spend the day swimming and relaxing on Bairds Beach, or do an optional 4-hour cruise (own expense) to swim with dolphins and sea lions at Bairds Bay. The sea lions will come into the sheltered lagoon to interact with you before you head further out into slightly deeper water, approximately 13 feet (4 meters), to swim with dolphins. Wetsuits and snorkel equipment are provided.

Afterward, visit the granite rock formations of Murphy’s Haystacks before returning to Coodlie Park Farm Retreat.

Learn to surf with a local surfer at Sceales Bay, then travel to a bakery to meet the owner and taste unique goods from a wood-fired oven. Follow some 291 steps down the Staircase to Heaven to reach Locks Well beach. Soon after, drive to Port Lincoln for lunch. In the afternoon, drive to Mikkira Station, your stop for the night, where it’s easy to spot koalas asleep in the surrounding manna gum trees.

Overnight: Camping at Mikkira Station (toilets and showers facilities)

Day 5: Mikkira Station Port Lincoln (B, L, D)
Today, if you dare, go cage diving with the fiercest predator of the sea: the great white shark. Sharks are easily visible from the boat, and each person will spend a minimum of 30 minutes in the actual cage. All meals, drinks, use of wetsuit and DVD highlight package included.

The less brave will visit Whalers Way Conservation Park to see kangaroos and emus, followed by a visit to Glen Forest Tourist Park, where you can hand-feed the animals. In the afternoon, take a boat from Port Lincoln marina to swim and snorkel with wild bluefin tuna!
