South Australia Destinations: Fowlers Bay

Explore Fowlers Bay on the Eyre Peninsula

With a pretty bloodied past as one of South Australia’s prime whaling locations, beautiful and wild Fowlers Bay on the Eyre Peninsula is still known for the epic number of whales that pass by its shores. 

These days of course there’s not a whaler in sight but instead binocular clad travellers who come here in their droves for a chance to see Southern Right whales in huge numbers socialise and breed between May and October.

If smaller fish are more your thing then there’s plenty of opportunities to catch tonight’s dinner with jetty, boat, rock and surf fishing all possible. Whiting, mullaway and garfish are plentiful so you won’t go hungry, though you may have to compete for your meal with one of the ridiculously cute bottlenose dolphins that live here too.

There’s plenty to do on dry land and the huge sand dunes that protect the peninsula from the Southern Ocean also provide lots of opportunities for adrenaline inducing fun, with sand boarding and dune driving topping the list. After take on the awesome dunes Sand Boarding head out on a hike along one of the pristine headlands and take in the view. This place is a beaut.
