Twenty minutes from the popular resort town of Arno Bay on the beautiful Spencer Gulf coastline of the Eyre Peninsula, Cleve is at the centre of an area rich in heritage, primary productivity and natural beauty.
Visitors can retrace the history in the National Trust Agricultural and Folk Museum, while a mural on the wall of a Main Street shop presents a colorful interpretation of the regional heritage.
Open on Thursday and Friday, the Cleve Coffee and Craft centre offers visitors the opportunity to combine a cappuccino and home-made goodies with a perusal of local craftwork.

The spectacular, 42km drive from Cleve to Cowell Hills takes in sweeping views of the surrounding, kangaroo, emu and mallee fowl-dotted plains and the Spencer Gulf.
