Port Lincoln

Port Lincoln - Eyre Peninsula - South Australia

The popular holiday destination of Port Lincoln rests on the shores of gorgeous Boston Bay the largest natural harbour in Australia and three times the size of Sydney Harbour. Home to Australia's biggest and most lucrative tuna fleet and tuna-farming industry, visitors converge on the town each January to encounter the Tunarama Festival, completely dedicated to this applauded fish. Join in with locals and visitors for some family fun as the town flaunts the best local seafood, wine, art and music along with the quirky and entertaining tuna tossing championships. Port Lincoln can be reached 646 kilometres, by road, from Adelaide, where opportunities await swimmers keen to come face to face with giant tuna!

In a town that is dominated by the seafood industry there is little shortage of temptations on the menu where, depending on the season, you could be sitting down to succulent western king prawns, oysters and southern rock lobster. Explore protected beaches, watch wild waves and kick the action up a notch on a dive with the great white sharks.

Port Lincoln offers a great range of entertainment and activities with the National Trust Museum at Mill Cottage, Railway Museum, Axel Stenross Maritime Museum, Nautilus Theatre and Mayne Gallery. Leave time to explore the unspoilt Lincoln National Park and its labyrinth of walking trails, hike up Stamford Hill where you will be rewarded at the summit with impressive views of the coastline.

There is a range of accommodation in Port Lincoln and the surrounding area to suit all holiday makers that come to experience this stunning township on the Eyre Peninsula.
