You loved our last post on how to spend 3 days in Port Lincoln so with so many things to do and see, we thought we'd give you another sample itinerary!
After arriving in Port Lincoln via a short 35 minute flight from Adelaide, get ready to embark on a day filled with experiences unique to the Eyre Peninsula. Wade into the shallows at Coffin Bay, plucking your very own world famous Coffin Bay Oysters fresh from the sea, hearing sea tales from local Oyster Farmer as you go.
Shortly after, indulge in a seafood platter, dining alfresco at seaside restaurant 1802 Oyster Bar & Bistro for lunch. While away a few hours here overlooking the quiet but beautiful town of Coffin Bay before heading back in towards Port Lincoln for a wine tasting at Boston Bay Winery, the closest vineyard to the ocean in the world.
Check into your luxury accommodation (at The Port Lincoln Hotel of course!) and take a moment to freshen up and take in the breathtaking, panoramic ocean views from your private balcony before enjoying a Seafood Dinner downstairs in Sarin's Restaurant.
Set off to the crystal clear waters of Seal Cove where the gorgeous puppies of the sea welcome your arrival with somersaults and graceful swirls, inviting you to join in! Perfect for families!
Enjoy an a la carte lunch at the waterside restaurant The Marina Hotel, enjoying the sea breezes and acool drink while watching some of the biggest fishing vessels in the Southern Hemisphere come in and out of the bay.
Enjoy a day on the green, playing a round of golf at The Port Lincoln Golf Course or take the kids to Glen Forest Tourist Park to get up and close with Australia's favourite animals.

Whether you're a night owl or an earlybird, everybody starts their day at some point...and we all seem to do it differently!? Here at The Port Lincoln Hotel we understand this and believe our breakfast offerings should be as flexible and different as the people eating it!
That's why starting this month, package your breakfast in with your room rate for the discounted price of $20pp (usually $25pp) and enjoy the flexibility of choosing from either our a la carte Breakfast Menu or our new look Breakfast Buffet. If you're staying multiple days, enjoy the all you can eat buffet one day, and then pancakes made fresh from the kitchen the next!
On our all you can eat breakfast buffet you will find all of your cooked breakfast favourites including Bacon, Eggs (cooked your way!), Baked Beans, Mushys, Hash Browns and more! On the opposite end is your favourite cereals including Bircher Muesli and Fresh Fruit. Toast, Crossiants, Danishes and cute little seasonal smoothie shots are too good to pass up!
Our a la carte menu is ever changing however at the moment you will find special treats like Fruit & Banana Martini's and Smashed Avocado aswell as the old favourites like Eggs Benny and Gourmet Pancakes! See the full a la carte breakfast menu here.
Our Buffet Breakfast is open every day from 6.30am - 10.00am and until 10.30am on weekends. Our A la carte menu is available until 10.30am on weekdays and until 11.00am on weekends.

It's often not until our guests arrive that they realise there are so many things to do and see in Port Lincoln! So lets say you have a long weekend coming up, or a sneaky 3 day getaway...here's our recommendations things to do and how to spend 3 days in our neck of the woods!
After arriving in Port Lincoln via a short 35 minute flight from Adelaide, be greeted by your personal guide for the day, a true Australian character and our friend, nicknamed 'Lunch" (seriously!) from tour company Goin Off Safari's. Sample the produce and tour a local fish factory before enjoying a picnic lunch on the white sandy beaches of the Port Lincoln National Park.
Try your luck at pulling in an Australian Salmon or Silver Whiting right off the beach, take a brief but rewarding walk up Stamford Hill (for the best views ever!) or just sit back with your toes in the water and a cool drink in hand.
Check into your luxury accommodation (at The Port Lincoln Hotel of course!) and take a moment to freshen up and take in the breathtaking panoramic ocean views from your private balcony before enjoying a seafood dinner downstairs in Sarin's Restaurant.
Tick that item off your bucket list and go shark cage diving with the oceans most feared predator - The Great White Shark - the only place in Australia and one of the very few places in the world that this can be done.
The early bird catches the worm...on when in Port Lincoln...the most amazing sunrises over the water that you ever did see! Reap the rewards, hire a paddleboard and join the others paddling through the shallows of Boston Bay as the sun rises and sets a magical golden glow over the water.
After refuelling on a delicious breakfast back the The Port Lincoln Hotel, enjoy a morning stroll along the Parnkalla Trail and Foreshore, fossicking through the shops and cafes as you go (and don't forget the obligatory snap at the famous Makybe Diva Bronze Statue). Grab a coffee from a seaside cafe (our picks are Rogue & Rascal and Del Giorno's!) and watch the yachts breeze by.
