Port Lincoln Guide: Spend Less, Do More

Welcome to Port Lincoln

Port Lincoln BeachPort Lincoln, the “Seafood Capital of Australia" on the shores of Boston Bay, Australia's largest natural harbour, is home to the tuna fleet and a flourishing tourist centre.

As well as serving top quality seafood in their restaurants, hotels in the Lincoln Harbour area are fitted with most or all modern facilities, with typical Australian hospitality, suitable for every pocket, and mostly located around the marina and on or close to the waterfront.

Top Things about Port Lincoln

Port Lincoln is home to Australia's largest commercial fishing fleet and aquaculture industry farming tuna, abalone and oysters.

Port Lincoln Parnkalla TrailIt is the ideal jumping-off point for exploring the Eyre Peninsula's wildlife trails and complex, contrasting coastline. There is even the opportunity to cage-dive with great white sharks or swim and canoe among the sea lions and dolphins.

Port Lincoln provides top quality seafood restaurants such as King George Whiting and Southern Ocean Rock Lobster, serving seasonal favourites.

The sea sustains Port Lincoln and gives tremendous opportunities for visitors to this vibrant, beautifully located resort. Quite apart from the fishing industry, charter boats ply Boston Bay and the Eyre peninsular coast, visiting Boston Island and other spots. Surfing, big game fishing, swimming with dolphins and dives with shark cages can all be arranged as part of a holiday based here, in addition to driving the area and perhaps even venturing as far as the Nullarbor Plain to the north-west.
