Follow the seafood trail:
If you’re hoping to turn your next holiday into a feasting extravaganza, then follow the food trail to awaken your tastebuds like never before. In the north-east corner of the Eyre Peninsula – a region world-famous for its seafood – is Whyalla, where catching your own banquet is an option every day. From the jetty, catch Australian herring, whiting, squid and garfish, or dig up blue swimmer crabs on the foreshore. From the rocks around Point Lowly Lighthouse, go salmon and snapper fishing for the perfect camp dinner.
In Port Lincoln find some of the best of Australia’s seasonal prawns, tuna, crayfish and abalone, or catch the Tunarama Festival in January, where you can take part in the Tuna Toss and enjoy the festive atmosphere. Or, if you’re looking for something truly memorable, drive north along coast to Streaky Bay for an ocean-to-plate cruise. Discover how oysters, fish and crabs are collected and watch as they’re cooked onboard by a professional chef.
Follow the ocean trail:
If you’re a swimmer at heart, choose the ocean trail for a string of underwater adventures. Start at Australia’s whitest beach, in Lucky Bay, where the squeaky-clean, pure white sand looks as if it’s been sifted right out of a postcard.
In Port Gibbon, stray off the beaten track and enjoy some of the most pristine beaches in the country. The area is a well-kept secret for campers escaping summer crowds. Pull your caravan into the beachfront caravan park and for unspoilt views of the ocean, go swimming in the clear water, or take a chartered trip to the Sir John Joseph Banks group of islands.
