Or autumn.  Or spring. Basically any of the cooler months.

The Eyre Peninsula often evokes images of summer – sandy beaches, inviting rock pools and gorgeous sunny days on the water.  And we do have all that, and more.

But we also have the beauty of the outback, and it’s best suited to the cooler months of the year.

The Gawler Ranges National Park is a stunning ancient playground with plenty to see and do for the whole family.  Starry skies, epic salt lakes, bush hikes to waterfalls and natural granite amphitheaters – and we have all the wildlife you could ask for.

But I’ll be more specific.  Here are seven things you can do in the Gawler Ranges this winter.

  1. Explore the spectacular Organ Pipes
  2. Dance on Lake Gairdner
  3. Spot the wildlife
  4. Walk through fields of wildflowers
  5. Visit Kolay Mirica Falls
  6. Enjoy the sunset at Sturt’s Lake
  7. And star-gazing? There’s no light pollution to ruin your view here!

So now you know what to do, read more about these activities, accommodation options and guided tours on the Eyre Peninsula website and don’t miss the blog “Let’s talk about oysters”.
