Port Lincoln, Australia Cruise Port

Port Lincoln is the base for Australia's largest tuna fleet, and a haven for ships from all over the Eyre Peninsula in Nawu country. It's a small city, but one which has huge charm, so much so that this port of just 11,000 people has become a hub for summering Australian natives and cruisers alike.

Just a stone's throw from national parks, prime beach barbeque spots, and traditional wineries, the township of Port Lincoln is a wonderful place to explore, and with its intimate size, you can do it all on your own two feet. The scenery, the tranquil atmosphere and the enduring friendliness of the locals means you'll never be left adrift on this captivating coastline.

Sightseeing in Port Lincoln

Lincoln National Park

The South Australia shoreline is a bountiful tapestry of rolling waves, epic stretches of sand and dusky red cliff faces, all spread out over a distance of miles. Lincoln National Park is one the best places in which to experience the truly diverse features of the Australian coastline, from vast sand dune systems to tiny islets resting just offshore.

The beauty of visiting this national park is that there's something delightful to discover whether you approach it from land or sea. Hiking trails criss-crossing upon the hills will lead you to outstanding spots for getting a good look at over 123 species of birds, whilst a boat ride up and down the coast can give you the rare opportunity to observe sea-lions and fur-seals in their natural habitats.

Delacolline Winery

If you head up the winding trail of the Whillas Road, you can find this traditional winery nestled amongst the hills, overlooking a vivid patchwork of lavender fields, grape vines and the azure expanse of the sea. The wine isn't bad either.

A sterling collection rotates throughout the seasons, making your visit truly special, and the rare and vintage wines tucked away at the bottom of the cellar that are sure to tantalise your taste buds. Make sure to get there in the afternoon to enjoy a sun-dappled dose of relaxation, and to enjoy the wood oven gourmet pizzas served to perfection by the owners.

Civil Hall Galleries

The Civil Hall Galleries are home to travelling exhibitions from all over Australia, with art pieces from as far as Sydney and Melbourne displayed throughout its pristine halls. Not only are there travelling exhibitions, but the work of local artists is always shown in the venue.
