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. Here, emus stroll the shoreline, and the dense bush beyond is alive with native birds. Ascend to Wanna Lookout for sweeping views across Sleaford Bay. Morning tea is paired with breathtaking views at a locally-loved picnic spot.
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 fresh from Australia’s busiest fishing fleet. Next, a scenic drive along the untamed coastline of Whalers Way brings you to Mikkira Station and the chance to get up close with some 150 wild koalas residing among the manna gum. 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.
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, with a camera full of moments that will be etched in your memory long after you’ve left the Eyre Peninsula.
PRIVATE UPGRADE TO 4WD TOUR
If you’d prefer to travel in a private four-wheel drive in your own group, you can upgrade your tour to a private option. We can tailor-make the day around your interests and head off-road for a little adventure if that is your style. The standard private tour upgrade includes a gourmet picnic lunch and wine in Lincoln National Park rather than going back into town for lunch at the Fresh Fish Place.
