Getting To The Eyre Peninsula
Whether you get here by road or by air, once you get to the Eyre Peninsula it’s time to let the journey begin.
The journey is part of the adventure in the Eyre Peninsula – we’re a big place, with a lot of things to see and do.
If you’re arriving from Adelaide, it’s a four hour drive to Port Augusta where you can pick which way you’d rather go. Follow the coast from Whyalla south, or keep heading west via Kimba and Wudinna to visit the Gawler Ranges.
And if you’re coming east across the Nullarbor, Ceduna will be a welcome sight for a little civilisation!
The Eyre Peninsula has three regional airports, in Whyalla, Port Lincoln and Ceduna. Serviced by both Regional Express and Qantaslink, there are daily services to and from Adelaide.
The Premier Stateliner offers regular coach services between Adelaide and Whyalla, Port Lincoln and Ceduna.
