Mulga Tours will show you the best places to visit on Eyre Peninsula. You will ride, explore, relax and dine and if you wish you can ramp up the excitement and go cage diving with Great White Sharks. What more could you want from a bike tour?

South Australia's Eyre Peninsula is one of those regions that should be added to the list of best cycling destinations in Australia if not the world.

So where is the Eyre Peninsula? If you take a map of Australia and fold it in half from east to west, Eyre Peninsula is the shark tooth at the bottom to the right of the fold.

Australia’s First Peoples have lived here for tens of thousands of years with archaeological evidence dating their occupation to greater than 40,000 years. By contrast Europeans first visited the region in 1802. The peninsula is named after Sir Edward John Eyre (pronounced "air") who in 1839, at the age of 24, was the first to map the land. His discoveries opened the region to settlers and by the 1870s much of the peninsula was being farmed.

Celebrated for its delicious and abundant seafood and adventure experiences, the Eyre Peninsula’s rugged and unspoilt coastline, historic towns and ports, national parks, gently rolling country and bike friendly roads make this a perfect destination for cycling.

Our bicycle journey starts in the century old frontier town of Ceduna on the ‘West Coast’ finishing 12 days later in Cowell on the Spencer Gulf. (See Travel Connections below)

Travelling mostly on sealed roads our 12-day biking tour keeps to the coastline following the Seafood Frontier touring route with a couple of detours into the interior. This is relatively easy terrain with some hills rising no more than 250 metres above sea level. Some of the points of interest that we will be visiting are only accessible using well-formed unsealed roads and these are outlined in the itinerary below.

Every Mulga tour is achievable by the average cyclist with the focus on enjoying each day, not stacking up the kilometres or racing the clock. Our goal is to soak in the scenery, marvel at fascinating stories, then recharge the batteries with a good feed and a good rest.
