With its many festivals and great live music scene, South Australia’s state capital prides itself on being Australia’s arts hub – but we love it just as much for its proximity to some of the world’s most amazing natural scenery. We head out of the city pretty early on day 1, stopping for a quick coffee in Port Wakefield, and then continuing on to the Yorke Peninsula. There will be time for a stretch of the legs at Port Germein, where you can wander along South Australia's longest jetty. Tonight’s campsite is at Mount Remarkable; keep your eyes peeled for yellow-footed rock wallabies, which have bounced back from near-extinction.
Driving time is about four and a half hours. We walk for about 2 hours.
- Camping (with basic facilities) (1 night)
It's an early morning start for the incredible Davey's Gully hike before travelling to the wild and beautiful Eyre Peninsula, one of Australia’s best-kept secrets. See some unique outback silo art in the tiny town of Kimba, and after a quick pit stop for lunch, it’s time to head to the coast to explore Venus Bay where you’ll often spot dolphins surfing the waves and Talia Caves.
In the afternoon we’ll pull in to Coodlie Park, our home base, where company owner Hassie will cook up a delicious BBQ feast and you’ll share stories with travellers from our other tours around the campfire before spending the night in a unique little swag hut.
Today we drive for five hours in total with stops along the way and all meals included.

Mikkara Station and Baird Bay
This morning you’ll be swapping buses, joining the tour coming from Perth and getting ready for a day filled with ocean-based adventure! A highlight of the tour today - you’ll have the opportunity to swim, snorkel and splash about with playful sea lions and dolphins on a 3-hour cruise in the calm and sheltered waters of Baird Bay. This outsourced adventure operated by Baird Bay Eco Tours is an optional experience and at only $180 will be an experience you will treasure forever. Those who choose to stay dry will have the morning at their leisure.
Following a picnic lunch on the beach, we’ll head to Mikkara Station, home to around 170 wild koalas!

Port Lincoln and Mikkara Station
Today you are offered two very different itineraries depending on your love affair with fear! If you are seeking a major adrenalin rush you can choose the optional experience of Shark Cage Diving with Great White Sharks. Port Lincoln is the only place in Australia and one of only five in the world you can come face to face with this incredible creature. This is a full-day tour which costs $389 - $564.
If you choose not to shark cage dive then your day is still action-packed. Visit Lincoln National Park, which features some of the most scenic coastlines in South Australia. Travel along Whalers Way coastal drive to see breathtaking coastline and some of the oldest rocks in Australia and you’ll be spotting abundant native Australian wildlife such as emus and kangaroos in the sanctuary.
We visit Wadlata Cultural Centre and have an interpretive walk through the life of the new frontier pioneers of South Australia. We’ll pick up any people returning from the Shark Cage Dive and then head to Mikkara Station to set up camp for the night.
Depending on which itinerary you chose we’ll drive for about four hours, and walk for two if not doing the cage dive.

Day five starts enjoying one of Australia's best-loved sports - surfing! You'll enjoy a 2 hour lesson on the waves of Fisheries Bay, a sheltered area with smaller waves perfect for beginners. If you're not keen on hitting the water, you'll have free time to explore to relax on the beach. In the afternoon we head inland to set up camp at Warren Gorge. Here you can explore the impressive Southern Flinders Ranges and hopefully spot a rare yellow-footed rock wallaby!
We bush camp at Warren Gorge which has showers and toilets.
