You will be met at your Port Lincoln accommodation at 09:00am by your private local guide to begin you journey exploring the Eyre Peninsula. Your first stop on today’s experience will be a visit to the Coffin Bay National Park to check out some of South Australia’s most incredible views. With a number of native animal species found in the park – Western Grey Kangaroos, Emus, Goannas and Dolphins included, there is plenty to see in and around the national park.
Your morning will be spent exploring Coffin Bay National Park before it is time to head back into town. Once you have arrived back in Coffin Bay it will be time for a visit to Ben Catterall, a local restauranteur and oyster farmer who will show you his oyster-lease and explain why the Pacific and Native Angasi Oysters are so widely sought-after by high profile restaurants around the world. There will even be the opportunity for you to don a pair of waders yourself and head out to sample some of these magnificent oysters fresh from the water. Afterwards a beautiful lunch at the Coffin Bay 1802 Oyster Bar and Grill will be arranged.
After lunch your guide will begin the journey out to Mikkira Station – the perfect location to view Koalas in their natural habitat. This is a fantastic place to sit back and relax around a campfire (seasonal considerations will apply) in the original restored homestead, or you may prefer to wander and explore the station. Finish off your visit with a platter filled with local produce and a glass of local wine.
On the way back to the Port Lincoln accommodation your guide will detour to the Marina Wharf – home to the Southern Hemisphere’s largest fishing fleet. You will also be able to view the diversity of Port Lincoln’s fishing industries vessels.
Your guide will then conclude your tour back at your Port Lincoln accommodation at approximately 5:30pm.
