We are often asked what the highlights of Southern Australia are. This is a difficult one to answer as we appreciate all aspects of this beautiful region. We tailor your tour to suit the duration of time you’ll be visiting for, the season, and your interests. With Xplore Eyre’s customised tours, our team can plan your ideal private tours from beginning to end, so you’ll see as much as you’re able to within your trip. To give you a taste of our tailor-made tours in Southern Australia, we preview the types of experiences you can encounter on guided adventures:
Xplore Nature and Wilderness
The regions of South Australia and south-west Western Australia are less well known and explored than those of New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland, and yet it is by no means less captivating. In fact, in these circumstances, less means more: the southern regions of Australia outshine their neighbouring states in delivering a far more pristine experience, untouched by mass tourism. The nature and wilderness on offer are beyond your imagination. From the rolling sand dunes of Little Sahara, to gigantic limestone cliffs of the Great Australian Bight, remote flats of the Nullarbor Plains to the rugged Flinders Ranges, on a customised private luxury tour or small group tour, you can be certain to connect with nature and experience the South Australian wilderness in its rawest form, while enjoying the optional comforts of hotel accommodation and travelling in one of our executive 4WDs.
Xplore Australia’s Wildlife
Due to both the variety of landscapes and relatively untouched ecosystems of Southern Australia, the abundance of native wildlife is something really special. Some of the creatures that you may discover on our tailor-made tours are the many kangaroo species including the red kangaroo, western grey kangaroo (also known as the sooty kangaroo) and ring-tailed wallabies. You’ll also see all the other iconic land-based wildlife such as goannas, dingos, wombats, koalas, parrots, emus, echidnas, and huge wedge-tailed eagles.
Xplore South Australia’s aquatic life and get a taste of the coast
The aquatic marine life of South Australia is just as phenomenal as life on the land. Southern right whales, bottlenose dolphins, great white sharks, seals and sea lions all frequent on the coastal seas of South Australia. We offer optional experiences where you’ll have the chance to go swimming with sea lions and dolphins, and cage diving with great white sharks in Port Lincoln.
Southern Australia is also home to Australia’s best seafood, wineries and farm producers meaning you’ll be in for a treat every day of the tour.
Xplore the Outback
Remote outback scenes are what many have come to know Australia for. The Nullarbor Plains delivers these perfectly. It’s a stunning outback region that stretches over 200,000 square km, expanding across South Australia’s eastern region and the south-west part of Western Australia. On our Perth to Adelaide, or Adelaide to Perth tours, you’ll be reconnected with nature in a way you could not have imagined. The Nullarbor is one of the few areas of the world that is still largely unexplored and uninhabited due to its remoteness. However, we believe it offers one of the greatest road journeys in the world. On one of our small group or tailored tours, you’ll be travelling this region in an executive 4WD with your expert tour guide who will take you on a real Aussie outback experience, road-tripping across the Eyre Highway from Adelaide to Perth.
Xplore the very best food and wine
The Eyre Peninsula and Port Lincoln are known as ‘Australia’s Seafood Frontier’. Some of the world’s most sought after seafood is caught here and you will be sampling a lot of it. Throughout our tours, you’ll indulge in perfect tastes of the sea on the Ocean to Plate Seafood Cruise or the Coffin Bay Oyster Experience. Exploring foods that are plated so close to their source offers a truly delightful culinary experience. Kangaroo Island also boasts a plethora of artisan produce: cheeses, wines and fine dining experiences guaranteed to please every foodie.
Xplore Indigenous Culture
Indigenous culture is a key component of all our tours. Passengers can learn much from local expert guides and the places we visit, including the Ceduna Arts and Cultural Centre. Australia’s Indigenous people’s history goes back thousands of years. It is of great importance that visitors have the opportunity to understand the deep-rooted Aboriginal history of the lands. The local tribes include the Adnyamathanha, Dieri, Kaurna, Maralinga Tjarutja, Ngarrindjeri and Narungga, among many other tribes who have populated the land over many thousands of years.
