Hills smothered in wild flowers edged by a craggy coast, the Eyre Peninsula stretches from the vast landscape of the South Australian Outback to the ocean.

To the north are the Gawler Ranges, rich with wildlife, while at the natural harbor of Port Lincoln sealions and dolphins roam. Overlooking the Great Australian Bight to the west, Baird Bay is abundant with sealions and from June to October, with migrating southern right whales.

Regular flights from Adelaide arrive at Port Lincoln, the hub of many off-the-beaten track encounters on small-group 4WD vehicle tours.

Swimming With Sealions

Sealion at Baird Bay, Eyre Peninsula
Sitting in the middle of a channel and guarding the approaches to Baird Bay, Jones Island hosts a colony of Australian sealions. Take to the shallow waters and you will soon be joined by a handful of these wondrous creatures, which swim up close and make elegant tumble turns, stare inquisitively into your mask and tickle you with their whiskers. This amazing encounter is possible for those staying at Baird Bay Lodge, or as part of a Gawler Ranges Safari.
