A new brand for Eyre Peninsula
In 2023 RDAEP completed development of a regional tourism brand; positioning ‘Eyre’ as South Australia’s ‘Wild Side’. The EYRE brand will be used for tourism marketing of the Eyre Peninsula, in place of the former ‘Seafood Frontier’ brand. The new brand, in addition to the Eyre Peninsula Destination Marketing Plan, puts Eyre Peninsula in a strong strategic position moving forward.
Are you a tourism business or community organisation that would like to utilise the brand? Access the brand assets on our EP Tourism Network Sharepoint – email firstname.lastname@example.org to gain access through a Microsoft email address.
