Climate & Weather

Just like the rest of our region, the Eyre Peninsula’s climate is one of contrasts – from arid in the far west to cool and temperate in the south.


The region enjoys a Mediterranean style climate, a couple of degrees cooler than Adelaide in summer, and a degree or two warmer in winter. On the coast, average maximum temperatures range from 25-32°C in summer and 12-18°C in winter. Average maximum temperatures are higher inland.

The warm, balmy days of autumn offer excellent touring weather, particularly for those who like to avoid the peak summer season. But the mild climate makes for ideal overall weather for a holiday, and that warm summer sunshine is perfect for the beach bums.
