Our Port Lincoln tour starts at 9 am when your guide will collect you from the Red Shed at the Cruise Terminal.
Sit back and relax as you take a drive around the Port Lincoln Marina to learn all about ‘Australia’s Seafood Capital. Perched on the largest natural harbour in Australia – Boston Bay – daily life here revolves around the sea. From the pristine South Australian waters, fishermen have been hauling in world-class seafood for decades.
Next, take a scenic drive along Whalers Way for jaw-dropping coastal scenery, from rock pools to epic limestone cliffs. This private property has a rich history and features some of the oldest rock formations in South Australia. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife from the land, sea and air, including a colony of fur seals that call this region home.
Our next stop is at Mikkira Station, where you will have the chance to get up close with some 200 wild koalas residing among the mana gum mallee. Home to the only wild koala population on the peninsula, as well as kangaroos and emus, this sanctuary is a must for wildlife lovers. In addition, the on-site historic homestead offers a glimpse back in time to the lives of the region’s pioneers.
Making our way back towards Port Lincoln, take in 360-degree views atop Winters Hill lookout. Be greeted with breathtaking views of the city, bay, Boston Island and on clear days, the various islands offshore.
Finally, after a town tour from the comfort of the bus, we’ll drop you in a central location in Port Lincoln at approximately 2 pm, giving you time to get some lunch and explore.
