    Port Lincoln, Australia

    February 5, 2015 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 72 °F

    February 4.
    Port Lincoln is primarily known for it's tuna business and oysters. Jeff was brave enough to have a big plate of their famous oysters at 9:30 in the morning! The landscape is more like what I expected Australia to look like with it's sandy, scrubby hillsides. It was a short stop of about 4 hours so we all took the opportunity to walk about 6 miles on ground that wasn't moving.
    The evening brought a special treat. If you give the chef 24 hours notice, they will prepare any type of meal you would like. Since we have enjoyed so many ethnic and local meals on the ship, we asked for a Philippine meal-it was fantastic! And served by our favorite Philippine waiter.
    We are now sailing through the Great Australian Bight which is an expanse of windswept sea that is known for it's roughness. It is calm as can be and we are happy! The captain seems to be making a beeline west to get past it as quick as possible. We have heard that the temperature at our next port, Perth, is 101 degrees. Not a complaint, just an observation!
    The second photo below was in the "bait" section of the convenience store.

    Port Lincoln& Greenly Beach, Australia

    April 4, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Am 02.04.2018 ging es also weiter nach "Port Lincoln". Hier angekommen informierten wir uns in der Touristeninfo über den Besuch des "Port Lincoln National Park", für den wir auch gleich den Eintritt bezahlen mussten. Nach einem Café-Besuch kauften wir uns in einem Angelshop das einfachste Equipment, um in den kommenden Tagen mal unser Glück mit der einfachsten Angelmethode (die wir in Kambodscha kennengelernt haben) zu versuchen. Denn wenn wir eins bisher festgestellt haben, dann ist es der Fakt, dass jedes noch so kleine und trostlose Nest definitiv einen Caravanpark, einen Golfplatz, ein Café und eine öffentliche Toilette hat und wenn dieses am Meer oder einem See liegt, der natürlich nicht gerade trocken sein sollte, kann man angeln! 😉
    Im Anschluss ging es in den Nationalpark, als erstes zum "Mary Ellis Wreck Beach", wo wir durch und über riesige Sanddünen wandern konnten, die uns ein wenig an unsere Wüstennacht in Indien erinnerten. Als nächstes unternahmen wir eine kleine Wanderung zum "Stamford Hill Monument", von wo aus wir einen Rundumblick über den Nationalpark und "Port Lincoln" selbst genossen. Die Nacht verbrachten wir im Zentrum "Port Lincoln's", allerdings war diese schon früh am Morgen des 03.04.2018 beendet, da die Kehrmaschine Kreise um uns fuhr. Nach dem Frühstück verabschiedeten wir uns von "Port Lincoln" und fuhren, mit Zwischenstopp in "Coffin Bay", weiter zum nächsten Ziel auf unserer Route. Nachdem wir, wie schon so oft, eine dieser fiesen Schotterpisten von 18km hinter uns gebracht hatten, erreichten wir "Greenly Beach". Die beschwerliche Anfahrt hatte sich definitiv gelohnt, denn der Ausblick an diesem Ort war wunderschön. Wir unternahmen eine Wanderung am Strand entlang, um zu den "Rock Pools" zu gelangen, in denen wir eine Abkühlung nehmen konnten. Der Stellplatz für die Nacht bis zum 04.04.2018 war definitiv mit einer der schönsten und könnte man diesen wunderbaren Anblick des Sternenhimmels bildlich festhalten, hätten wir es getan.

    July 4, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Twice today I had a beautiful view of ocean and someone amazing doing the cooking while I was useful on the computer!
    Making up for missing the Little Sahara in Kangaroo island we found sand dunes in the national park south of Port Lincoln. With the wind working against us we did a few lookouts before emptying our food storage for lunch.
    After a stressful shopping for surviving the Nullabor and search for drinking water we made our way back to the beach we started the day.

    Port Lincoln, Australia

    February 4, 2015 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Port Lincoln is just across the bay from Adelaide and is a much more "frontier" town then Adelaide. It fashions itself as the "Seafood Capital of Australia" and houses the main tuna fishing fleet. The fishing boats go out into the Southern Ocean off the coast and find the big schools of tuna and corral them with nets. Then instead of bring them in they haul the nets out of the ocean to the bay around Port Lincoln where they feed the tuna and, I suppose, wait for the price to go up and then harvest then for sushi in Japan mainly. It is a very interesting operation and you can actually get in the pens and swim with the tuna. They say the nets not only keep the tuna in but the great white sharks out which does seem to be a plus since they are also famous for their great whites. You can swim with them in cages if you want as well. Needless to say Nancy did not do any of these and while I did want to cage dive with the sharks time did not permit us to do it on this trip so maybe next time. :-)
    They are also famous for some horse that was kind of like our Sectretariat called Mykabe Diva. They also train some of their horses on the long beach in the front of town. We saw the one below doing "wind sprints" down the beach and then cooling off in the ocean water.

    Port Lincoln

    February 25, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    We are not used to such hustle and bustle of normal life, it was a bit busy for us..lol...some really pretty things here tho. The beaches are very rocky. Lovely parks and the beachfront with big trees and grass are beautiful. We drove past the port lincoln Hilton and it seems axactly the same as when Milt did the shopfitting all those years ago. He said the counter is the same even after 20 years.. i think he got a hoot out of that. We saw Makybe Diva statue on the forshore then a little servo on the outskirts had a giant shark.. well we just had to take some pics. The Adelaide to Port Lincoln classic yacht race was just finishing but the photos dont do it justice. It was really pretty to watch.Read more

    Port Lincoln

    March 15, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Situated on Boston Bay, one of the largest protected natural harbours in the world, in fact three times the size of Sydney Harbour. The natural deep water harbour makes Port Lincoln attractive to large bulk carriers.
    Port Lincoln is also known as the " Seafood capital of Australia " where you can enjoy mouth watering seafood, as well as interact with the amazing sea life from cage diving with the Great Whites, to watching playful Australian sea lions. The town is the ideal base from which to explore the scenic coastline and beaches, and enjoy a myriad of experiences including sailing, scuba diving, kayaking, paddle boarding, surfing, fishing or if the fish aren't biting there are plenty of galleries, museums, shops and restaurants to pass the time.
    The foreshore is also home to a life size bronzed statue of the famous mare , Melbourne Cup three time winner Makybe Diva. The mare owned by Tony Santic, who was a local tuna fisherman. We took Mawson along and let him experience sitting on the super mare.
    The mosaic couch is a peaceful contemplation, conversation and connection artwork. Mawson Sat himself down waiting to experience the scerenity.
