Port Lincoln

— 5 nights
Primarily a marine industry town, Port Lincoln has about as many marina trawlers and grain silos as luxury yachts.
Take a break from the city and head to Shark Diving and Whalers Way. We've included these beaches for you: Lincoln National Park and Fishery Bay. Step out of Port Lincoln with an excursion to Food Tours in Coffin Bay--about 34 minutes away. There's still lots to do: stroll around Glen-Forest Tourist Park & Vineyard, steep yourself in history at Mill Cottage Museum, tour the pleasant surroundings at Sleaford Bay, and explore and take pictures at Winter Hill Lookout.
