With regional, intrastate travel now actively encouraged, we’re sure many of you have started taking a look at where to head in our gorgeous South Australian backyard.

We often come across incredible photographs our readers have taken of the gloriousness that is South Australia, so we decided it was about time we collated some of these images to inspire, delight, and celebrate the damn beauty of our state.

The first destination to be showcased is the Eyre Peninsula.

Known for its seafood (particularly Southern bluefin tuna, Yellowtail kingfish, and Pacific oysters), national parks, and marine life, this SA destination has a lot to offer.

A visit might include shark cage diving, whale watching, or heading to one of the region’s signature wineries.

So, without further ado, prepare to travel (virtually and visually) through the Eyre Peninsula.

Port Lincoln

Arguably Australia’s seafood capital, Port Lincoln is home to the country’s largest commercial fishing fleet, and some of the world’s most desirable seafood.

Port Lincoln also plays host to wineries stunning coastlines, ocean experiences (think shark cage diving and swimming with sea lions), beaches, and native wildlife.

Lake MacDonnell

Lake MacDonnell is a must on South Australia’s pink lake circuit.

Its high salt concentration makes for some rather breathtaking colours, and at the end of the road lies the Eyre Peninsula’s Cactus Beach.

Kimba is located at the hallway mark across Australia, at the very top of the Eyre Peninsula.
