Day 2 : Streaky Bay - Sceale Bay - Streaky Bay
After a cooked breakfast in the dining room we board the coach and make our way to Murphy’s Haystacks, a series of dramatically weathered granite outcrops which are possibly as much as 1500 million years old, where we will have a cuppa. They were named after Dennis Murphy, the property owner, by the local mail coach driver who used to point them out to passengers during the trip from Streaky Bay to Port Kenny. Next we head down to Point Labatt Conservation Park to see the only permanent colony of sea-lions on the Australian mainland. Travelling back to Steaky Bay we have time for lunch . After lunch we visit the Streaky Bay oyster shed where we learn about the finer points of oyster farming. We may have a taste of the oysters. Our final stop for the day is at the Museum which is in the Old School Building and is run by the National Trust. Exhibits at the museum include displays of Aboriginal artefacts, birds’ eggs, shells, old furniture, medical equipment and early agricultural machinery. It is a typical folk museum with lots of interesting memorabilia about the local region. The day almost complete we make our way back to the motel with time to freshen up before dinner. (B D)


Day 3 : Streaky Bay - Penong - Nullabor
After a hearty breakfast we head for the Nullabor travelling along the Eyre Highway through Ceduna, Penong, Bookabie to Nundroo and Yalata before we reach the Head of The Bight. Lunch will be a picnic. There were a record number of whales sighted last year. Access is via the new boardwalk which was completed a few years ago. The boardwalk is safe and offers spectacular views. Closer to shore would be the females with their calves while further out are the bulls frolicking with some young females (mothers maybe one day). Time to make our way to the Nullabor Hotel/Motel for our night's accommodation It is also possible to arrange a flight over the Bight at own cost (approx. $180). (B L D)
Nullabor Hotel/Motel

Day 4 : Nullarbor - Fowlers Bay - Streaky Bay
After breakfast we pack the coach and make our way back east to Yalata, Nundroo, and onto Fowlers Bay. Its here that we board the magnificent 50ft vessel, the “Asherah”, and get to absorb the passion offered us by the owners/operators of EP Cruises, Rod & Simone Keogh. The passion & knowledge they have, along with the delivery of the cruise, is truly wonderful. Taking in the rugged cliffs and magnificent little coves of Point Fowler, you will enjoy playful interactions with our beautiful Australian Sea Lions and whales. Fowlers Bay is home to an abundance of endangered, vulnerable, and protected species of marine mammals and oceanic bird life. After lunch we bid farewell to them and head to Streaky Bay via Penong and Ceduna. (B L D)
