End of Autumn Update

It has been a while since my last post and a lot has happened in Port Lincoln in the meantime. The weather has been great and we missed out on all the heatwaves with a beautiful mild summer and of course nice sunny days right through autumn. This is one of the reasons Port Lincoln is such a desirable place to come and visit or to live as we have great living weather most of the time.

In January we had the Tunarama which was popular again like every year, in February the Adelaide Lincoln Classic yacht race and March the Port Lincoln racing carnival which all bring lots of visitors.

This year we also had 2 new events, one still going “The Salt Festival” and over the Easter weekend the “Port Lincoln Auto Sprint” which was a success.

January 2017 Update

We are already more then hallway through summer and for us in Port Lincoln the weather has been very kind.  We have and are still having some nice warm days and missed out on the heatwaves.
The Tunarama has just finished again and was a success like every year in Port Lincoln.

Also like every January it is the month the Port Lincoln Arts Prize is held, you can still view the exhibition until the 18th of February at the Nautilus Arts Centre.

End of Winter Update

Winter is coming to an end in Port Lincoln with the days getting longer and temperatures creeping up. The countryside is really looking great so even though it is still a bit cool now is a good time to come and visit.
The canola fields look absolutely stunning and all the other cereal crops look great and heathy. It is just a sea of green and yellow right now. The wattles as well are all flowering and our little native orchids are popping out of the ground.

Autumn Update

While summer has come to an end Autumn is a great time to visit Port Lincoln as the days are usually nice and warm with cooler nights.
A lot has happened since my last post just after the Tunarama, we had the Adelaide to Lincoln yacht race last month. Another popular event is the Port Lincoln Cup which was held last week and the Port Lincoln Racecourse.
We also had the pleasure of the Young Endeavour (replica of Captain Cook’s boat) visiting for a few days.

Tunarama 2016

The 2016 Tunarama was again a success and was well patronised not just by the locals but also lots of visitors. Most of the accommodation places in Port Lincoln were booked out with some visitors staying as far away as Coffin Bay and Tumby.

A first this year was the illuminart show projected on the silos, it was on every night at 9:30 PM, see picture below.
