About Ceduna

Population 3,500

Ceduna is on the western edge of Eyre Peninsula, South Australia. It's the last major town on the drive west to Perth and the first after crossing the Nullarbor from Western Australia. The area is a combination of natural bushland, farming, rugged rocky bays and secluded white sandy or shelly beaches. It is a great place for those who love the outdoors and somewhere that offers a more secluded chilled-out getaway. They have great weather with sunshine most days of the year. For those who are feeling more adventurous there is great hiking along the dramatic coastal cliffs and rocks. There is also good fishing, diving, surfing, swimming or whale watching on the Nullarbor. Ceduna boasts rich Aboriginal cultural and the Ceduna Aboriginal Arts and Cultural Centre is a must for anyone who appreciates Aboriginal and contemporary arts.
