Here, the beach life thrives and our atmosphere is infectious. Come autumn, the days become shorter and bring a season of tranquility, perfect for hiking and discovering our communities without the crowds. In winter, our inland camping experiences shine as the crisp air embraces you. By spring, the peninsula bursts to life. As the weather gradually warms, nature is awakened around you.

Summer Sun, Sea, and Adventures

Summer on the Eyre Peninsula means long, sun-drenched days with warm weather and minimal rainfall. It's the ideal time to embrace the coastal experience. Whether you're swimming, surfing, diving, snorkeling, paddle-boarding, or simply lounging on the beach, there's plenty of coastal activities to enjoy.

Venturing to the Far West? Cast your line for mulloway from the beach or try your hand at crabbing around Streaky Bay. During the summer months, the sand is soft and inviting – perfect for sand-boarding adventures at Lincoln National Park or Fowlers Bay.

December and January mark the peak season for coastal Eyre. Whether you're planning a camping trip or booking your home away from home, it's wise to plan ahead and make reservations in advance.

Autumn Escape the Crowds

Locals will tell you that autumn is the prime season on the Eyre Peninsula. The autumn months grace us with tranquil, crystal-clear days – perfect for exploring our pristine beaches where you'll often find the sands unmarked, except for your own footprints. The night skies come alive, creating an excellent backdrop for stargazing, and the mild weather offers ideal conditions for hiking. Lace up your boots for adventures on Mount Greenly and Carappee Hill.

Autumn also brings a wonderful sense of community with events like the SALT Festival and Colour Tumby taking center stage. It's an ideal time for those seeking to escape the crowds, although it's wise to plan ahead if you're considering a visit during the Easter holidays, which can get quite busy.

Winter Whales, Fish, and More

Winter on Eyre Peninsula unveils unique and extraordinary experiences. As the season unfolds, our famous cuttlefish arrive in Whyalla for their mating ritual, and whales gracefully pass through, giving birth to a new generation. It's the perfect time to venture into a national park and camp beneath the starry night sky, with a cozy campfire to keep you warm.

Winter is also prime for indulging in freshly harvested oysters straight from the racks and trying your hand at catching King George whiting. If you're into angling, the Australian Salmon Fishing Championships are open for enthusiasts. Even if rain makes an appearance, don't fret. You'll always find a warm welcome at the local museums, and local guides are well-versed in the hidden gems of Eyre Peninsula in winter
