Summary

Join us as we explore beautiful coastlines along the Yorke and Eyre Peninsulas. With spectacular coastline scenery and several experiences and tours, this safari is the best way to explore some of South Australia's renowned regions - plus with experienced guides and fellow members, there will be plenty of laughs had along the way. We start the tour off in Port Wakefield, then make our way down to the bottom of the York Peninsula. Enjoy getting up close and personal with wildlife, bird life and marine life, before we slowly make our way back up the peninsula. We will stop at Port Victoria and Moonta before jumping on the ferry over to the Eyre Peninsula. We get to explore the natural beauty of coastal towns such as Tumby Bay and Coffin Bays. The half day guided tour of the Oyster Farm is always a favourite, and you won't go home disappointed after your Mikkira Koala experience and the Eco Sea Lion Tour. We end the tour near Port Augusta and enjoy a final night together. Come along with us and share this experience with your fellow members - it's a great way to explore beautiful destinations in your own vehicle with good company.
