Trekking the Great Australian Bight

One of the great things we used to do as kids was to do some exploring around the farm, the scrub & sand dunes & rock pools along the coastline. Somethings don’t change & even as big kids a few of us found ourselves exploring some of the coastline & clifftops along part of the  Great Australian Bight.

This really is sensational. There is over 2000km of coastline on Eyre Peninsula, featuring rugged & spectacular towering limestone cliffs as well as beautiful sweeping surf beaches, sand dunes, sheltered coves, rare osprey nests & our treks will show you all of this plus some!

For those of you who like the outdoors & a bit of fitness with some fresh sea air blowing into your face, this is right up your alley!

We provide  2lt camel packs with your food requirements for the day & away we go starting on our coastal farm & making our way along the waters edge & then gradually climbing up onto the cliff tops where hardly anyone has ventured before.

Views are obviously incredible as is the wildlife, but for me, seeing & hearing the surf crash in from the Southern Ocean onto the cliff faces makes you want to sit & watch for hours.

Depending on your fitness levels, the trek takes about 6 hours to do, so we can do this as just a day trip or an another option as an extra activity on one of our Goin Off Safaris packages. We try to avoid November- March as it can get very hot, but spring time is ideal. We can also extend this day trip into a longer format with 2-4 day trks available & for those really keen & inspired we are planning kayaking, trekking & riding a larger section of the coastline. Should be great fun, a great challenge, so contact us about that as well!

Very well done to the members of the Leonello family who took up the challenge & came with us for the first time late last year & hardly raised a sweat!
