What are the best things to do in Port Lincoln?
Lincoln National Park
Lincoln National Park is a beautiful coastal area located south of Port Lincoln on the Jussieu Peninsula. There are several white-sand beaches to visit around the national park, hiking trails, and some snorkelling opportunities. The rugged coastline of Lincoln National Park is also located on Boston Bay, Australia’s largest natural harbour. Note that you’ll need to plan ahead if you’re hoping to visit the Memory Cove portion of the park while holidaying on Port Lincoln packages. Only 15 cars are allowed to enter each day as a way to preserve the area, so you’ll need to reserve your spot after booking Port Lincoln holiday packages.
Axel Stenross Maritime Museum
There’s a fascinating maritime history to learn about while visiting South Australia on Port Lincoln holiday packages. The city’s Axel Stenross Maritime Museum is centred around Finnish carpenter and sailor Axel Stenross who arrived in Port Lincoln in 1927. He loved the area so much that he decided to stay and set up a ship building enterprise there. Museum exhibits include his workshops, living quarters, and some restored ships. The Maritime Museum also touches on the overall history of fishing in South Australia and the expeditions of Matthew Flinders.
Coffin Bay National Park
Coffin Bay is another of the exciting national parks to have on your radar when booking Port Lincoln holiday packages. Its rugged landscape consists of tall cliffs, sand dunes, and several sheltered bays. There are some excellent coastal walks around Coffin Bay National Park, but the water activities are the main attraction. Head out on canoes, go sailing, or do some snorkelling or scuba diving from the beaches of Coffin Bay National Park. Visitors with access to a 4WD can also head to the park’s secluded northern beaches for surfing, fishing, and birdwatching.
