Exploring Coffin Bay
Travel to the beautiful Coffin Bay National Park which features some of the most scenic coastline in South Australia. Kick-off your shoes for a stroll along deserted Almonta Beach. Enjoy morning tea served up with spectacular 360-degree views, and keep your eyes peeled for families of emus and kangaroos.
Next, it’s time for a tour highlight as you meet the makers behind Pure Coffin Bay Oysters – Chris and Linda. Soak up the pristine environment around you learn about the oyster industry on the Eyre Peninsula. Pluck fresh oysters from straight from the lease, try your hand at shucking, and finally, taste! Then you will understand why Coffin Bay Oysters are recognised as the world’s best and have been known to convert many a non-oyster eater. Cruising back towards town, sip on some local sparkling wine (at own expense) and keep your eyes peeled for the dolphins that call these waterways home.
With your taste buds wanting more, we’ll sit down for lunch at 1802 Oyster Bar & Restaurant. Enjoy Chef Andy’s favourite dishes sampling a range of local produce from the sea and land. On the way back into town we’ll pop into a hidden secret which those with a sweet tooth will love, and after a caffeine hit, we’ll visit the oldest standing structure in Port Lincoln – The Old Mill for breathtaking views over Boston Bay.
Our final destination is the Eyre Peninsula’s very own craft brewery to learn about their sustainable brewing practices and taste their signature beer, Eyre Peninsula Ale. Not a beer drinker, that’s OK as the venue champions other great local drops.
