The Eyre Peninsula is emerging as a unique culinary tourism destination with an exciting range of food and wine experiences on offer.
Visitors shouldn’t miss Australia’s only Seafood Trail – a cellar door for seafood – which takes in 2000 kilometres of stunning coastal experiences. Stretching from Streaky Bay to Whyalla, the trail includes tours of fish farms and processors, boat cruises, tastings and the opportunity to try, buy and dine on world-class fresh ocean catch.
The Trail guides you to the best restaurants around the region, where you will be guaranteed the best of our famous seafood or if you prefer to cook your own, you will be able to find fresh local seafood at the outlets featured on the Trail.
If you want to learn more about our wonderful seafood industry, join one of the tours listed on the Trail. Get up close and personal with a tuna, take a leisurely cruise through the fishing fleet at the marina or learn how an oyster is shucked.
There is something to tempt every palate with the focus on fresh local seasonal seafood, all washed down with one of our award winning local wines.
But it’s not just seafood that lures visitors to the Eyre Peninsula. Visitors can uncover a variety of remote roadside bakeries, passionate chefs championing award-winning seasonal menus in stunning coastal locations and winery cellar doors dotted across the region. Popular also are the Eyre Peninsula Farmer and Fishermens Markets. Held in locations across the region, the markets are a true celebration of the local food industry with passionate growers and catchers selling direct to the public.
Offering a combination of superb wines and premium fresh local produce, the Eyre Peninsula is an emerging food tourism destination that shouldn’t be missed.
