Apart from the bus service along the east and west coasts, there is no public transport available on the peninsula, so you either need to have your own wheels (car hire is available in Port Lincoln) or join an organized tour. Nullarbor Traveller (tel. 08/8687 0455; www.thetraveller.net.au) offers a 6-day adventure tour of the peninsula that includes a camel trek, swimming with sea lions, swimming in a tuna farm, an optional great-white-shark cage dive, surfing lessons, sand-dune 4WD trips, and swimming with the giant cuttlefish (in season). The tour includes a mixture of camping and farmstay accommodations and most meals. It costs A$870, but you'll have to pay extra if you want to swim with the sea lions or get into the shark cage. XploreEyre (tel. 08/8687 0455; www.xploreeyre.com.au) has a range of 2-, 3-, and 4-day tours in 4WD vehicles for up to six people; they cost A$1,325 to A$2,950 per person, including meals, accommodation, and activities.
