Happy 2016

2016 has started and we are at the height of the tourist season now in Port Lincoln and surrounding areas like Coffin Bay & Tumby Bay. Most accommodation places have been booked out and a lot of them still are, but there are still some vacancies if you are thinking of coming to Port Lincoln for a visit.
Today we also have again the Pacific Jewel from P&O cruises visiting for the day, while we had quite a lot of warm and hot days already this summer today is a bit on the cool side.

The last 3 months have also been very dry in Port Lincoln with very little rainfall since the beginning of October; in fact 2015 has been way below our 520mm average with only 412mm recorded for the year.

Only 3 more weeks to the Tunarama Festival starting on the 22nd to the 26th of January, visit the official website for more information.

Spring Update

Spring has arrived in Port Lincoln with all the shrubs and bushes flowering (particularly the wattles) and it is slowly warming up. So now is a good time to come and visit Port Lincoln and see it a it’s pristine best with the countryside beautiful and green.
It is also good time now to go orchid hunting with the camera as the little natives are out (a bit later this year because of the cold winter) along the Parnkalla Trail in Port Lincoln and the Investigator Trail near Tulka.


Winter Update

We are now right in the middle of winter in Port Lincoln with some more rain over the last 2 weeks as well as cooler temperatures. Things have gone a bit quieter as far as tourist visits but this time of the year is still a good time to spent a few days in Port Lincoln.

One of the attractions right now is whale watching, not necessarily here in Port Lincoln but further along the coast at the Head of the Bight. There have been some whales sighted locally at Sleaford Bay and some times they come right here inside Boston Bay as well but at Nullabor is really the only place where you are certain to see lots of them.

Here in Port Lincoln the Sharks are definitely back at Neptune Island for the people who would like to go cage diving. This is also a great time to visit our National Parks with less visitors you may get a beach all to yourself.
Another good spot to visit this time of the year is Mikkira, take along a picnic lunch and go koala spotting.


Port Lincoln News Update

Port Lincoln will turn green very soon now as we finally had some good rain over the last few days, over 20mm. This was the first decent rainfall since August last year and we were starting to wonder if it will ever rain again over here at the west coast.
While it is a bit wet for the tourists there are other good news on that front with the first sharks being sighted again at Neptune Island. They disappeared 2 months ago after one of them was killed by a Killer Whale. This is great news for the shark cage diving operators.
