CUMMINS 70 kilometres from Port Lincoln map reference Q7 Cummins sits at the centre of rich undulating farmland on lower Eyre Peninsula and is a thriving service hub for outlying farming communities and provides a central location from which to explore Eyre Peninsula. Settled in 1904, many of the historic buildings remain, including the old butter factory, a horse dip and the original government dam. Cummins offers a good range of shops, sports facilities and accommodation options. Highlights include Wild Timber, a family business that creates custom-designed furniture and crafts. Take a guided tour through the garden of Coolangatta Cut Flowers, where you’ll find a range of flowers grown in fields and hothouses. The railway line to Port Lincoln was completed in 1907 and the railway-loading triangle is now a park with free barbecues, picnic area, playground and toilet facilities. Visit the Wheat Lumper statue, a community-funded statue commissioned to recognise grain handling methods important in the agricultural history of the district. Cummins Milling is the only flour mill on Eyre Peninsula, producing bread flour which can be purchased at the local Five Loaves Bakery. The bakery also stocks a range of pastries and regional produce including olive oil, honey and preserves. Only half an hour’s drive from Cummins, you’ll find the east and west coasts, with spectacular fishing and surfing beaches. To the east there is the Glendara Rose Garden, Koppio Smithy Museum and Tod Reservoir and Museum. The Koppio Smithy Museum features the original blacksmith shop and a range of displays. In the small town of Yeelanna, 15 kilometres north of Cummins, the Bellwood Museum (open by appointment) contains local farming and family artefacts. The Biographical Gallery tells the stories of many past residents. WANGARY AND MOUNT DUTTON BAY 27 kilometres from Coffin Bay map reference Q8 Mount Dutton Bay is situated on the southern coastal tip of untouched Eyre Peninsula, where the coast showcases the best in natural beaches and scenery and Marble Range overlooks the sea. Mount Dutton Bay was once a bustling seaport. Today, the town offers plenty of good accommodation, including bed and breakfasts, cottages and a backpacker hostel, plus some important heritage sites, such as the restored jetty and Mount Dutton Bay Woolshed Museum which consists of hundreds of local items depicting the history of shearing, farming and fishing in the area. Heritage tours of the Woolshed Museum are available for large or small groups, coach tours and school groups. Surveyed in 1882, Wangary is today a small community and farming centre. The Anglican church built in 1900 is still in use and the Old Hotel provides take away food and drinks, fuel and bait. Farm Beach is a great spot for a beach picnic, fishing or camping. There’s also a boat launch ramp. To the east of the town is Lake Wangary, discovered in 1844 and originally known as Lake Waungerri - one of the few permanent freshwater lakes on Eyre Peninsula. To the north lies Gallipoli Beach, featured in the Peter Weir film Gallipoli. Also worth visiting is the historic Stone Farm. If you’d like to sample local free-range pork drop into Minniribbie Farm.
