Port Lincoln tours…
As the sun slips across the landscape, your Eyre Peninsula exploration begins. You’ll be collected from your Port Lincoln accommodation between 7.30 am, and 8 am before venturing to the secluded shores and untouched bushland of Lincoln National Park. This coastal wilderness is a haven for some of Australia’s most iconic wildlife. Go untamed as you bear witness to nature in its wildest state. Here, emus stroll the shoreline, and the dense bush beyond is alive with the native birds.
Ascend to Wanna Lookout for sweeping views across Sleaford Bay. Perched clifftop, chances are you’ll spot dolphins frolicking below or, come winter, whales making their way along the coast. Morning tea is paired with breathtaking views spanning across the harbour at a locally-loved picnic spot, then kick off your shoes and walk along the powder-white sand of Surfleet Beach.
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 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, stop for lunch at a popular local haunt, the Fresh Fish Place. Sample the region’s world-renowned seafood as you watch the day’s catch brought into Australia’s largest port. By mid-afternoon, arrive at Lincoln Estate for wine tastings and see kangaroos, parrots and other wildlife.
Soak in the last moments of the day atop Winters Hill lookout. Finally, we’ll drop you back to your Port Lincoln accommodation between 5 pm and 5.30 pm, with a camera full of moments that will be etched in your memory long after you’ve left the Eyre Peninsula.
