Port MacDonnell plays host to the largest southern rock lobster fleet in Australia and an account of the towns celebrated maritime culture can be found at the Port MacDonnell and District Maritime Museum. Experience the Limestone Coast with a seaside drive, soaking up the beauty of this rugged stretch of coast. Divers are welcome to join one of the local dive tour companies to encounter the underwater world of shipwrecks that pepper the coastline, mysterious chambers in Piccaninnie Ponds and the waters of the Cathedral.

Launch your boat into the alluring Southern Ocean and reel in the catch of the day, however seafarers wishing to head offshore are advised to contact the Port MacDonnell Offshore Fishing Club prior. Take in a sunrise and a sunset at the Cape Northumberland Heritage and Nature Park, the historic lighthouse, curious rock formations and cute penguins.
