Eyre Peninsula - Getting Here and Around
Drive or fly
Getting to the Eyre Peninsula is easy. Drive, fly or hop off the train at Port Augusta to pick up a hire car and start your journey.
The trip from Adelaide to Port Lincoln is beautiful. Take Highway One to Port Augusta, with the Spencer Gulf on your left and the Flinders Ranges’ purple hues to your right. Travel around the Spencer Gulf and down into the Eyre Peninsula.
The Middleback Ranges will appear to the right, as you travel through Whyalla, Cowell, Tumby Bay and arrive at Port Lincoln.
The Premier Stateliner coach service will take you the same way. If you’re headed towards the beautiful surfing beaches on the Eyre Peninsula’s far west, it will go across the top of the peninsula, through the sheep and wheat towns of Kimba, Kyancutta and Wudinna to Ceduna.
If you’re in a hurry, you can travel by air. A short flight from Adelaide (short means short; you’ll just have enough time for an in-flight cup of coffee and a biscuit before you start your descent) will take you to Port Lincoln Airport, Whyalla or Ceduna, where car hire, including four wheel drives (4WD), is available.
If you love trains, hop on the Ghan from Adelaide to Port Augusta to pick up a hire car. Travel on the Indian Pacific (the train that runs from Perth to Sydney) and you will stop over at Port Augusta.
