Trip time! Discover the diving and adventure in Port Lincoln.

Port Lincoln is a historic township and gateway to the stunning Eyre Peninsula in South Australia. Explore Boston Bay, try fine local wines and fresh seafood and explore the beautiful natural landscapes of the region’s national parks. Port Lincoln is a great destination for observing a wild underwater world and joining exciting charter and game fishing tours.

Explore Port Lincoln’s picturesque waterfront and stroll along Boston Bay. This beach opens up into Spencer Gulf and the Great Australian Bight and is a fantastic starting point for yachting, scuba dive journeys and fishing trips. Join a dive tour to experience a heart-stopping cage dive with great white sharks, swim with Southern bluefin tuna and play with Australian sea lions. Relax on a leisurely Port Lincoln sightseeing cruise and look out to Boston Island and the pristine beaches of Lincoln National Park.

Enjoy a scenic drive through Whaler’s Way, a private estate that features a dramatic landscape of cliffs, rock pools, sea caves and coastline. Ocean views and seals and ospreys in their natural environment are some of the sights on Whaler’s Way. Travel 15 kilometres (9.3 miles) south of the town to find Lincoln National Park, a gorgeous region of protected wilderness. See wild kangaroos, emus and goannas and magnificent views from Cape Donington and historic Stamford Hill.

Visit a restaurant for fresh regional seafood or a local pub for laid-back meals at the town’s waterfront and marina area. Try fresh oysters sourced from nearby Coffin Bay, tasty black mussels and fresh fillets of whiting. Pair your meal with a fine South Australian wine for the ultimate Eyre Peninsula dining experience.

Port Lincoln is 647.1 kilometres (402 miles) from Adelaide, South Australia’s capital, over land. Take the scenic ferry route from Wallaroo on the Yorke Peninsula and arrive to nearby Lucky Bay. Flights also run regularly between Adelaide airport and Port Lincoln’s regional airport. Coaches operate between major coastal towns in the region.
