Day 2 – Checkout & Pick-Up

After a continental breakfast, check out of the Port Lincoln Hotel. Drive down to the industrial sector of Port Lincoln, the Flinders Ports Wharf. This wharf is South Australia’s main grain plant as the natural deep-water harbor enables Port Lincoln to fully load grain carriers, up to the massive Panamax class vessels. On average during a season, almost 3 million tonnes of cargo was moved through the wharf, totaling around $2.2 billion. This includes the majority of grain commodities (including wheat, canola, barley, peas and beans harvested on the Eyre Peninsula and a huge proportion of the fresh seafood caught in South Australian waters. Often you will have the opportunity to view the unloading of a fishing boat, or fertilizer that has been imported to grain that is to be exported.

Next, visit Marina Wharf, home of the largest fishing fleet in the Southern Hemisphere, to see the diversity of Port Lincoln’s fishing industries and vessels. The local fishing industries include Bluefin Tuna, Hiramasa Kingfish, Spencer Gulf King Prawns, Blue Mussel, Southern Rock Lobster, and Sardines as well as smaller trailer boats used for Abalone, Southern Calamari, Snapper, Crabs and King George Whiting. Following with a hands-on, 45-minute tour of the Fresh Fish Place, where you will see the full process a fish goes through, from ocean to plate.
