Leaving the sights of the city in their rear-view mirror, South Australian vloggers Cam, Rosa and Charles packed their bags, jumped on a plane and touched down in the #instaworthy Eyre Peninsula.

Here, you’ll spend your days swimming with sea lions and sharks, devouring fresh seafood and taking-in jaw-dropping ocean views. Follow our trusty vloggers’ itinerary to sip, savour, explore and encounter the best of the Eyre Peninsula.
1. Locks Well Beach
Never shy, the Eyre Peninsula put on a show for our vloggers as soon as they stepped off the plane, greeting them with some of Australia's most stunning coastal scenery at Locks Well Beach. The gang were in awe at the seemingly-endless, rugged coastline and learnt about the beach's claim to fame as a top salmon fishing spot.

3. Adventure Bay Charters: Swim with sea lions
Rewarding their wonder, the team rose and shone early, for a day on the water with Adventure Bay Charters. Jumping on-board at Port Lincoln, they cruised 1.5 hours out to the Class A Marine Reserve of Hopkins Island. Here, they squeezed into wet suits, slapped on their snorkels and spent the next hour and a half meeting and greeting a beach-full of sea lions, from hefty bulls (adult males) to adorable pups.

4. Whalers Way
The rugged coastline of Whalers Way beckoned and our travellers heeded its call. Taking the road (much) less travelled, our vloggers set off, following their tour guide/surprise rally instructor, Bob, pushing their 4x4 to its limits on the winding roads of Whalers Way. Stepping onto the sand, they they took-in more ocean eye candy, watching waves crash as the afternoon rolled on.

7. Oyster Farm Tours
Embracing the unexpected, our vloggers (lead by a very enthusiastic Rosa) pulled-up their chest waders and hit the water for an Oyster Farm Tour. Wading through pristine waters, the crew plucked their lunch straight from its source and washed it down with a glass of lip-smacking local wine.
