Port Lincoln is the home to Australia’s largest commercial fishing fleet and is located on the beautiful pristine waters surrounding Eyre Peninsula’s east coast in South Australia. It lies on Boston Bay, one of the largest protected natural harbours in the world which is three times the size of Sydney Harbour.
To whet your appetite, here are just a few of the varieties of seafood that are in abundance in Port Lincoln:
There are many ways to have a ‘seafood experience’ ranging from dining at one of the many fine seafood restaurants in town; to getting up close and personal to Tuna in one of the Tuna ponds; to a tour through the a seafood processing factory with a seafood tasting at the end of the tour.
For the adventurous, you can go Shark cage diving and come face to face with the ocean’s ultimate predator – The Great White Shark. For a more sedate adventure you can swim with the Sea Lions on a half day cruise with one of the charter operators. You can also get aboard a fishing charter and try your hand at catching your own fish.

Featuring some of the most accessible and ruggedly beautiful coastal scenery in South Australia, Whaler’s Way is a wonderland of cliffs, blowholes, crevasses, caves and white sandy beaches. Couple this with the whaler’s days long gone, still in evidence at the old Sleaford Bay Whaling Station, sited at Fishery Bay.
Whaler’s Way is situated at the southern-most tip of the Eyre Peninsula, south of Port Lincoln and is an absolute must see. It is privately owned land, so once you get a permit and a key from Port Lincoln’s Visitors Information Centre, you head south west for 32 kilometres until you reach the entry gate.
With map in hand you enter the property and meander your way along 14 Km’s of dirt roads with all points of interest signposted along the way. The dramatic scenery unfolds before your eyes and simply takes your breath away!
For seafood lovers Port Lincoln is an absolute must see. For nature lovers Whalers Way is another must see. South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula ruggedness and beauty will sweep you off your feet!
