The Port Lincoln area has so many awesome things to explore that it makes the perfect place to stop and have a day’s rest from driving, it’s also perfectly timed after the previous day’s epic 7-hour drive.
Here are some of our recommendations on how to spend your well-earned rest day.
Sightseeing 1: Glen-Forest Tourist Park & Vineyard
What could be better on a day off from driving than stretching your legs and seeing some cute animals? The Glen-Forest Tourist Park & Vineyard is home to koalas, wombats, ostriches, water buffalo, emus, and loads of other animals. It’s also the perfect place to spend an entire day, with picnic areas, a cafe with a pizza oven, and several drinks kiosks to relax, refuel, and even have an estate-grown glass of wine.
Sightseeing 2: Whalers Way
Whalers Way offers everything you need if you’re looking for a breath of fresh air after six days of driving. There are cliffs, blowholes, and caves to explore, along with beautiful beaches and incredible coastal views. Whale watching is particularly popular here, too.
You’re also able to camp overnight at Whalers Way, so why not spend your day relaxing on the beach, followed by a night stargazing over the ocean?
