Gateway to some of Australia's most amazing views

I came to Port Lincoln with the idea of visiting Whalers Way. I'd read something of it in brochures and the internet. Nothing prepared me for the most awesome of days that my friend Bob and I would spend there. It's truly inspirational and I would venture to suggest that if one were to make a list of the top ten must-sees in Australia, they would be remiss were this place not to appear on it.
Obviously there's more to Port LIncoln than some semi-obsucre landscape, and that more is mainly fishing, as in tuna. There's a lot of nice homes in Port Lincoln and, directly or indirectly, our finned friends are responsible for most of them.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Some of Australia's most epic scenery, great fishing, museums
  • Cons:Can be a bit wild and woolly when the weather gets up
  • In a nutshell:The area should be seen by all Australians at least once in their lives

    Really nice and cozy pictures of the seashore, even if not especially the wave pic and the windfarm. Greater photos on top of great writing.

    Crikey Ian, some people do some tough trips! That looks a great place, both scenically and piscatorially (and now on the list of places we want to go). Top stuff on all counts.

    Ian I am speechless! What a fantastic journey, exceptional photography and excellent writing. Some great laughs were had on your adventure, I know - not the least was the one about the kids.

    Looks like you had another great holiday. Not yet been to the south of Australia, so thanks for sharing with us.
