FishEP
A website dedicated to fishing Eyre Peninsula, South Australia. It's a must see. Why? Because Eyre Peninsula is one of the best places in Australia to catch fish, with Mulloway, Kingfish and Southern Bluefin Tuna as well as King George Whiting and Snapper.

Murphy's Haystacks

Murphy’s Haystacks
Murphy's Haystacks are a unique feature of the West Coast of South Australia. About 39k south of the quiet seaside town of Streaky Bay stands a rock formation called Murphy's Haystacks. The origin of the name is interesting in itself but the rocks or "inselbergs" that are the haystacks are even more fascinating. A must see for every visitor.
