After a shared feast of local produce, we jump back onto the bus and on the way back into Port Lincoln visit the oldest standing structure in Port Lincoln – The Old Mill. Built in 1846 as part of a flour mill complex, it was never used for that purpose however now its fully restored and a lookout tower with amazing views over the city and Boston Bay.
