Baird Bay

Baird Bay is a small fishing village located 50 km South of Streaky Bay on the Eyre Peninsula. It is situated on the shallow western arm of Anxious Bay, a sheltered inlet lined by cliffs and beaches.

Although the township is small, Baird Bay has garnered considerable tourist attention due to its sea lion colony, with local tour guides giving interactive swimming sessions with the sea lions. This has become one of the main tourist attractions on the Eyre Peninsula. The isolated town has very limited facilities, with only a few houses, a camping ground and boat ramp. The nearest town for supplies is Streaky Bay, around 50 km away.

At Baird Bay Campground there are toilets, gas barbecue and seating under shelter with limited bore water.  There is also a wood barbecue for use ONLY when fire restrictions allow.  Users will have to bring their own wood if they wish to use the wood barbecue.
