3 Day Head of Bight Tour
Just returned from a 3 day Head of the Bight tour. Had an amazing time – an all inclusive tour with Craig (aka “Hassie”) is the ultimate way to experience this part of Australia. Everything is taken care of (flights, transfers, food, accommodation) while the scenery and wildlife speaks for itself. We saw approximately 15 whales each day – once up close on a boat, and once atop the breathtaking cliffs at the Head of the Bight. Had a great time with the other activities as well (fishing, 4WD, visiting untouched beaches). This is a once in a lifetime trip that i would highly recommend.
3 Day Head of Bight Ocean & Outback Private Tour
The 3 Day Head of Bight Ocean & Outback Xplore Eyre private tour was a great way to see this part of South Australia in a very personable lovely experience.
During our tour we stayed at Shelly Beach, beach front villas with our own fantastic unobstructed beach view.
Our first day consisted of a trip to Fowlers Bay where we took a whale watching boat tour where we got to see and learn about Southern Right whales, listen to hump back whales and swim with sea lions in their natural habitat. We ate wonderful Denial Bay fresh oysters and fresh caught sea urchins and fish.
The second day was a road trip on the Nullarbor Plains to the Head of the Bight to see magnificent Bunda Cliffs and even more Southern Right whales. On the return journey back to the accommodation we went to the Murrawijinie secluded caves on the Nullarbor Plains and spotted wild life such as white dingo, Wedge Tailed Eagles, Emus and Kangaroos and photography of the sunset on the horizon.
On our last day of the trip we visited a pristine secluded beach near Davenport Creek and went 4 Wheel driving to the highest sand dune for a 360 degree view of the landscape.
The tour was very well organised by Hassie who was also very welcoming. The tour was well planned and Hassie was very willing and able to shape the tour around our interests. He even used his local connections so that we were on the boat in Fowlers Bay during the best weather conditions of our trip.
We’re looking forward to our next trip with him to the Gawler Ranges South Australia later in the year.
Thanks Hassie for a great trip…!

Review of 3-Day Best of Port Lincoln and Coffin Bay Private Tour from Adelaide
Untouched landscapes, coastal adventures and incredible wildlife made our recent tour with Xplore Eyre an unforgettable experience! Plus our hosts and guides, Paul and Hassie were incredibly welcoming and accommodating. Mum and I were lucky enough to tour through Port Lincoln, Coffin Bay and out along the coast to an incredible eco-property, Coodlie Park. I loved the local beers at Beer Garden in Port Lincoln as well as the Koalas at Mikkira Station… plus the untouched beaches with almost no people around was straight out of a dream. The people behind these tours are truly incredible, with such a love for the land. It’s the best way to experience this part of Australia. If you have the time, be sure to make it out to Coodlie Park. The rustic, repurposed and eco-friendly living will welcome and impress you! Plus, swimming with sea lions and dolphins at Baird Bay will be an experience I cherish forever!
