From Adelaide, hit the road and explore Australia's seafood frontier on the Eyre Peninsula. The Eyre Peninsula boasts fantastic food and wine, an abundance of wildlife, but it's best known for its world-famous aquatic activities including swimming with sea lions and shark cage diving. Base yourself in Port Lincoln where you can explore Australia's largest natural harbour, dine on fresh seafood and oysters in Coffin Bay National Park or simply explore secluded beaches and granite peaks at your own leisure.
Coffin Bay Tour
Your day begins as it does for most Eyre Peninsula locals, resetting and rejuvenating by the ocean. This tour takes in Coffin Bay National Park, home to a swathe of the Eyre Peninsula's best beaches, including Almonta Beach. Roam secluded, sandy shores without another soul in sight - except for the resident mob of kangaroos and emus - then settle in by the sea for morning tea with panoramic views across the vast landscape.
Venture around the coast to our next destination, where world-famous Coffin Bay oysters are primed for tasting. Meet the local producers – Chris and Linda – and learn about the Eyre Peninsula's enviable seafood industry as you glide through crystal-clear waters to Experience Coffin Bay's working oyster farm. Pluck your very own oysters straight from the ocean, learn how to shuck your fist-sized Pacific prize, then sample the briny fruits of your labour.
The taste of the ocean on your tongue, vivid waters lapping at your waist and a gentle sea breeze on your cheek – this is a gourmet experience to awaken your senses. After your oyster epiphany, cruise back to shore. You may even be joined by the local pod of dolphins who call these waters home.
Your gourmet seafood escape continues back on land. Pull up a seat overlooking the bay at 1802 Oyster Bar & Restaurant, where head chef Andy will introduce you to his favourite local produce sourced from the surrounding sea and land with an exclusive tasting menu. Take your time and take it all in before we meander back towards Port Lincoln.
The perfect pairing for your seafood feast, local wines and sweeping views await at Boston Bay Wines. Perched above the Southern Ocean, sample a range of premium wine and meet Tony and Sonia, second-generation wine growers and producers. At day's end - cup, belly and soul full – we'll drop you at your Port Lincoln accommodation between 5 pm and 5.30 pm.
