Our region: Eyre and Western

Established in 2016, the Eyre and Western Regional Science Hub covers around 230,000 square kilometres, encompassing 11 council areas and the towns of Whyalla, Port Lincoln and Ceduna on the Eyre Peninsula.

With a population of around 60,000 in our region, the main economic drivers are agriculture and aquaculture.

From a scientific perspective, we’re interested in climate change, water security and supply, and renewable energy options such as wind farms.

We’re also focussed on natural resource management, sustainability and biodiversity across terrestrial and aquatic environments. Our local industries work with our communities to create awareness  and understanding, and to implement new technologies  where possible.
