NEW signs will soon be going up around Eyre Peninsula to indicate to travellers that they are on the seafood frontier route.
Eyre Peninsula's Seafood Frontier Touring Route, which is a South Australian Tourism Commission initiative, leads people from Whyalla to Ceduna, with opportunities and experiences to see, taste and purchase seafood direct from the suppliers.
Welcome and farewell signs located just prior to Whyalla and at the Head of the Bight will let travellers know when they have arrived at or are leaving the Seafood Frontier.
The signs, similar in concept to Route 66 road signs in the USA will also be dotted around the route at regular intervals at Whyalla, Arno Bay, Port Lincoln, Coffin Bay, Elliston, Streaky Bay, Ceduna and Head of the Bight.
The signs will work in with the already established Seafood Frontier Road Map to take locals and visitors on a seafood safari of the region.
When the signs go up, which should be before the end of the year, it will be the culmination of the project.
Regional Development Australia Whyalla and Eyre Peninsula special projects assistant Jade Ballantine said it was great to see the project almost complete as it had been in the pipeline for three to four years.
“It would be great to progress an equivalent outback touring route for Eyre Peninsula to take people up to places like Kimba,” Ms Ballantine said.
