FULL ITINERARY

Our Port Lincoln tours start as the sun begins to warm the landscape. We’ll collect you from your Port Lincoln accommodation between 7.30 am and 8 am.

Sit back and enjoy the entertaining commentary from your expert local guide as we venture to the secluded shores, wind-swept sand dunes, and untouched bushland of Lincoln National Park. This coastal wilderness is a haven for some of the Eyre Peninsula’s iconic wildlife. Emus stroll the shoreline, and the bush beyond is alive with native birds. You might spot sea lions swimming in the surrounding waters.

From Wanna Lookout you’ll have sweeping views across Sleaford Bay. As you stand on the clifftops, chances are you’ll spot dolphins frolicking below, and in the winter season, 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 Eyre Peninsula, as well as kangaroos and emus, a visit to 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, we 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 in to Australia’s largest port by the Southern Hemisphere’s largest fishing fleet.

Then, mid-afternoon, we head to Lincoln Estate for a wine tasting, and see kangaroos, parrots and other local wildlife.

Take in the last moments of the day from atop Winters Hill lookout with a soaring view of Port Lincoln and Boston Bay extending to Lincoln National Park and beyond.

We’ll drop you back to your Port Lincoln accommodation between 5 pm and 5.30 pm, with happy memories that will stay with you long after you’re home from the Eyre Peninsula.

    We had a wonderful West Coast adventure - whale watching and more. We loved every minute and are looking forward to Untamed day trip Escapes around Coffin Bay and Port Lincoln coming up soon!
  • Avatar Paula McManus ★★★★★ 6 months ago
    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!

    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 michelle ball ★★★★★ 6 months ago
    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 🤩🤩🤩

    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!!!

    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.

    What an amazing way to see the Eyre Peninsula! Hassie has got to be the most informed person of the EP, and wow does he have some stories.
    I will definitely be getting on an Adelaide Hills tour asap and maybe even one of their WA tours!
