When to fly
The summer month of January also offers some great events and excuses to book flights to Port Lincoln. As Port Lincoln is known as the Seafood Capital of Australia, it’s no surprise they host the annual Tunarama Festival, during this time. This family event celebrates the local tuna fishing industry with a street procession, fireworks, delicious seafood and of course the famous tuna toss.
If you manage to book cheap flights to Port Lincoln during the cooler month of March, be sure to attend the Port Lincoln Cup Carnival. This event is centred on thoroughbred horse racing and sees the whole town join in the carnival spirit with a number of events and popular functions.
Port Lincoln, the self-proclaimed 'Seafood Capital of Australia' offers so much more than casual culinary delights and golden beaches, and attracts many to book flights. Situated on the lower Eyre Peninsula in the south of Australia, this bright and beautiful port is in a prime location for those who want to explore the unforgettable stretch of coastline and beyond.
With such great links to the open ocean, it's no wonder that Port Lincoln is famed for its incredible sea excursions. One of the most exciting by far is the shark cage diving experience, giving you the opportunity to get up close and personal with Australia's most infamous natives. If you'd prefer something a little tamer, also has various swimming experiences with giant tuna fish and sea lions. True to its claim, this destination also offers fishing excursions that let you experience first-hand why Port Lincoln is the seafood capital.
Once you've retreated back to the shore, head inland to the Glen Forest Animal Park where you can interact and feed some of the local wildlife before getting in a quick round of mini-golf with the family. The nearby Lincoln National Park is also an ideal spot if you're looking for a bit of tranquillity and relaxation. A breathtakingly beautiful location, you can experience everything from woodland trails to dolphins skimming along the shore. Finally, what better way to end your trip than by visiting Whalers Way to give you the best panoramic view of the city.
