Port Lincoln & Eyre Peninsula

Port Lincoln

Port Lincoln is located at the southern tip of the Eyre Peninsula, in South Australia. This area was discovered in 1802 by the British naval explorer Matthew Flinders, who named the town in honour of his homeland Lincolnshire.

Adventure-seekers will love our sensational national parks at Port Lincoln and Coffin Bay. Visit stunning beaches and do some serious 4-wheel driving and camping. The national parks have access to some locations without a 4-wheel drive; so don’t be deterred if you do not have one.

Today, around 14,500 people call this town home, with a significant number of that population being involved in the fishing industry. The Lincoln Cove Marina has the largest fishing fleet in Australia and our local fishing industry sources a vast array of seafood to tantalise your tastebuds, including;

  • Bluefin Tuna
  • Coffin Bay Oysters
  • Abalone
  • Calamari
  • Southern Rock Lobster
  • Mussels
  • Prawns
