Day 2: Adelaide to Port Lincoln

A private transfer will whisk you away from your Adelaide accommodation to the airport for your short 45-minute flight to Port Lincoln. Your expert guide awaits your arrival, coffee at the ready. The best Port Lincoln tours are fuelled by seafood, and today is no exception. Lunch is courtesy of local favourite, the iconic Fresh Fish Place, where you can sample the Eyre Peninsula’s seafood bounty, including oysters, scallops, crayfish, crab and fish, as you watch the day’s harvest hauled to shore. Join a local legend out on the water aboard the ‘Tesla’, a unique electric canal cruiser. Cruise Port Lincoln’s marina and learn about the Eyre Peninsula’s enviable seafood industry surrounded by Australia’s largest commercial fishing fleet.

Winding further along the coast, we’ll make our way to Lincoln National Park. Kick-off your shoes and wander into the wild while your guide lets down the tyres in preparation for a 4WD adventure through the dunes. Ascending Stamford Hill, soak in panoramic views of the surrounding wilderness and the Southern Ocean swells beyond. Set to the soundtrack of the bush and waves lapping on the shores below, take a moment of repose immersed in nature. Back in town, unpack and refresh at the Port Lincoln Hotel, perched on Boston Bay, before making your way to the waterfront Marina Hotel for dinner featuring the region’s best produce.

Day 3: Coffin Bay

Begin your day sprawled out on the famed sandy shores of Coffin Bay National Park. Experience nature in its most pure state as you explore the untamed bush, beach and wildlife that defines this iconic wilderness. Settle in by the sea for morning tea at the beautiful Yangie Bay picnic area. Awakened, continue on down the coast to taste world-famous Coffin Bay oysters. Glide through crystal-clear waters to a working oyster farm and pluck, shuck and sample plump Pacific oysters straight from the source. Back on land, your main course is served at 1802 Oyster Bar and Restaurant. Chef Andy has been busy plating up a selection of his favourite dishes utilising the finest Eyre Peninsula produce from the land and sea.

The afternoon promises local wine tastings at Gardners Wines and back in Port Lincoln, the remains of the day are yours to enjoy while dinner is courtesy of the award-winning restaurant Del Giorno’s.

Day 4: Port Lincoln and surrounds

Your final day kicks off at Sleaford Bay, where undulating dunes give way to crystal clear waters frequented by dolphins and whales. A scenic drive along Whalers Way brings you to Mikkira Station, and the chance to get up close with some 150 wild koalas residing among the mana gum mallee. Home to the only wild koala population on the Eyre Peninsula, as well as kangaroos and emus, this sanctuary is a must for wildlife lovers. The on-site historic homestead offers a glimpse back in time to the lives of the region’s pioneers.

Come lunchtime, arrive at our final destination, Boston Bay Wines. Meet Chef Tony Ford for the “Feed Me Fordie” experience and learn about his second-generation vineyard. Feast on delicious food and taste a range of premium wines over a long lunch.

    We did a whole day tour of Port Lincoln and it was truly the highlight of our trip. Our tour guide, Ian, was just so friendly and knowledgably about the area. It was definitely worth it and we are so glad we did it to discover the best … More of Port Lincoln!
  • Avatar Daniela Cetrangolo ★★★★★ 6 months ago
    In March 2021 four of us did the Best of Port Lincoln and Coffin Bay and we still talk about our experience when we catch up. From the minute we were greeted at the airport by our tour guide Ian the fun began. Ian was a fountain of information … More and he certainly made our experience memorable. He showed us many amazing sights, our hotel accommodation was A1 and our food was 10/10. Getting into our waders and sitting down at a semi-submerged water pavilion, shucking oysters washed down with some wine was an experience we will never forget. We will be back!!!

    We had a lovely day. It was so scenic and relaxing. we were not expecting to learn this much but so glad that we did.
  • Avatar Trish Ferguson ★★★★★ 8 months ago
    I absolutely loved my 10 day trip across the Nullarbor from Adelaide to Perth, there was not one thing I would change. The Nullarbor was on my bucket list of things to do and you can’t do it any better than living out of a swag. If you … More get the chance to swim with the seals and dolphins do it, it’s worth every cent. I just loved seeing the kangaroos on the beach over in WA and the huge trees and the bush walks we did. Don’t think about it just go ahead and do it.

    We recently were treated to a fully guided whale watching tour and have been raving about it ever since. We saw things we were in awe of, went to places that we can't wait to return, learned things about the area that were amazing … More and stayed in beds that were oh so comfortable. We would recommend Untamed Escapes to anyone who wants to get the best of the Eyre Peninsula and Nullarbor Plain during whale watching season!

    4 days of exploring and experiencing the Margaret River region. Wow wow wow, loved the visual delights, nutritional sensations, the slowness of yoga sessions, the workshops of sourdough making at One Table Farm; the education received from … More the Spice Mistress and her delightful food. The experience of tasting gin for the first time and walking an 8km section of the Cape to Cape. Thank you so much Jodie, Gem and Riley for making me feel so welcomed, you looked after us girls in every way. Glamping at Fair Harvest was a treat I’ll never forget 🤩🤩🤩
