The Eyre Peninsula is bounded by the Great Australian Bite to the west, the Spencer Gulf to the east and the Gawler Ranges to the north. This is a major agricultural and fishing region and is characterised by a lower rainfall and a lack of portable water. This has made water tanks an essential part of the water supply in this region.
The major industries in the region are agriculture, with a focus on cereal cropping, and some dairies and wineries in the southern region there is a major fishing industry, and some mining.
The climate in the Eyre Peninsular ranges from arid in the far western side, to cool and temperate in the southern regions. The summers are hot and dry and the winters are mild and wet. The average annual rain fall varies from under 300mm per annum in the west through to 500mm in the south east of the region. The lower rainfall levels and the predominance of winter rains makes this region ideal for rain harvesting and the storage of water in water tanks.
The major towns in the region are Port Lincoln, Whyalla, Port Augusta and Ceduna and smaller service towns of Cowell, Kimba, Streaky Bay, Coffin Bay and Cleave. Bushmans have a network of stockists in these towns who are able to service your needs when it comes to Bushmans water tanks.
