Head of the Bight – Outback & Ocean Experience
Day 1 – Adelaide to Ceduna
This morning, you will be transferred from your accommodation in Adelaide, bright and early to catch your 8.15 am flight to Ceduna arriving 45 minutes later. Your local guide then collects you from Ceduna Airport to give you an overview of the exciting things you are about to experience!
You will start your journey by exploring Denial Bay where you’ll learn about the oyster industry and sample some fresh produce. Then we’ll get a little adventurous doing some 4WD’ing at Acramans Creek before travelling to the most iconic surfing spot in South Australia, Cactus Beach.
Today we will drive 150 kilometres & tonight stay in the stunning Fowlers Bay to check into your self-contained accommodation at the Fowler Bay Holiday Units. L / D
Day 2 – The Great Australian Bight
This morning enjoy breakfast on foreshore before boarding the Fowlers Bay Whale & Oceanic Cruise to witness the great spectacle of the Southern Right Whales sheltering with their young in the waters of the Great Australian Bight Marine Park. This cruise often includes sightings of humpback whales, dolphins, sea lions, Little Penguins and bird life.
If the Whale Cruise is not operating, we’ll take in the beauty of the rugged Eyre Peninsula, do some 4WD’ing, explore National Parks and an iconic outback roadhouse.
We’ll walk footprint free beaches, sample the local seafood and even try your hand at surf fishing. We’ll make our way back to Fowlers Bay and cook the catch of the day. B / L / D
Day 3 – Ceduna to Adelaide
This morning its up bright and early to take in the jaw dropping beauty of the Head of Bight. From this incredible lookout on the Great Australian Bight we’ll spot some more whales (in season) and simply take in the view of this what is Australia’s ultimate coastal lookout.
From the sea to the air! Next, we highly recommend the Optional Extra Experience of the 45-minute Scenic Flight over the Great Australian Bight and inspiring Bunda Cliffs where you will be able to spot 100 or so southern right whales as well as the spectacular scenery of the outback of the Nullarbor.
As your tour draws to an end, we’ll experience the true Australian outback heading inland to see some limestone karst caves of The Nullarbor before returning back to Ceduna and boarding your flight to Adelaide where our transfer will have you back to your Adelaide accommodation at 9:00 pm. B / L
