Cape Bauer Drive - Coastal Scenic Drive
The scenery along this section of the Great Australian Bight is both rugged and spectacular. Stop along the way for some amazing photo opportunities and discover interesting features including Hally's Beach, where surf fishing is popular or Whistling Rocks and the Blowholes, which now boast a 360 metre boardwalk and viewing platforms with wheelchair access to the fore dune.
Like many streches of the Eyre Peninsula coastlune, this is a signficant breeding habitat for raptors such as the Southern osprey, White Bellied Sea Eagle and Peregine Falcon. For information on how to respect these raptor breeding areas please contact the Department for Environment and Heritage office at 15 Bay Road, Streaky Bay of phone (08) 8626 1108
As you travel back to Streaky Bay marvel at the colours and hues of the mangroves which are listed as 'very important' wetlands, and stop off at the boat ramp to check out the latest fresh fish catch. Relax and reflect as you take in the lovely view of the township across the calm waters of the bay.
