Eyre Peninsula Visitor Guide : 2016-2017 Eyre Peninsula Visitor Guide
exploreeyrepeninsula.com.au | lower eyre peninsula 26 The southern tip of the Eyre Peninsula is synonymous with ocean-fresh seafood, white-knuckle adventure, brilliant sunsets and a burgeoning dining scene. For a while Port Lincoln looked like displacing Adelaide as the capital of South Australia. Today, its fame is based around fishing and aquaculture – fresh seafood from Port Lincoln is now exported to markets throughout the world. Blessed with a vast natural harbour called Boston Bay, Port Lincoln has developed world- class fisheries and state-of-the-art seafood processing. King George whiting, Spencer Gulf King prawns and Southern Rock lobsters are just some of the many delicacies produced here. Little wonder that Port Lincoln is a magnet for recreational anglers. Those less adept at the sport can join one of the many Lower EYRE PENINSULA fishing charters available, or just drop into a fish market and pick up their supplies, fresh from the boat. These days, visitors are coming to Port Lincoln not only to hook a fish, but to swim with them. Slip on a snorkel and flippers and meet some Australian sea lions. Adrenaline junkies will certainly want to go cage diving with Great White sharks.
