The Eyre Peninsula, Australia
Eyre Peninsula is a triangular peninsula in South Australia. It is bounded on the east by Spencer Gulf, the west by the Great Australian Bight, and the north by the Gawler Ranges.
The area is also known as the Eyre Coastal Plain, of which it is a distinct physiographic section of the larger Eucla Basin province, which in turn is part of the larger West Australian Shield division.
The peninsula’s major industry is farming, although many coastal towns also have commercial fishing. In the drier northern parts of the peninsula, farming is mainly related to cereal crops, sheep, and cattle.
In the south, however, more water-intensive activities such as dairy farming are carried out. There is also a growing wine industry in the south.
