As the days lengthen and the weather warms our thoughts turn to making plans to enjoy the great outdoors. Although the fluid nature of precautionary COVID mandates and health advice may limit what we can do and how far we can travel, many are fortunate to still be able to continue our support of local South Australian business. We can still explore the great outdoors, if only to venture to the next town or surrounding suburb. Mindful of the South Australian Government COVID-19 travel page guidelines, the time is right to discover and explore Port MacDonnell.
Once one of the busiest ports in Australia, shipping large quantities of wheat and wool to Europe, Port MacDonnell is today home to one of the largest lobster fishing fleets in the country. 480 kilometres SE of Adelaide and an easy drive to nearby Robe, Millicent, Beach Port and Mount Gambier, the region is steeped in history and natural wonders and attractions. With apartments, hotels, motels, caravan and camping facilities and self contained villas among the many available accommodation options, you can take your pick on where to stay.
From shopping, fashion, arts and craft, cellar doors and local sights a plenty, Port MacDonnell has plenty to offer. For sporting enthusiasts to beach lovers, for history buffs or those content to simply sit back, relax and soak up the beauty of a stunning coastline, extensive limestone caves, volcanic craters and rocky formations. Take a fishing charter, go sailing, witness the natural beauty of Cape Northumberland, or emotively relive the final voyage of the Admella. No matter whether you are looking to take a break from the world or seeking an excuse for a weekend getaway, start by planning your trip to Port MacDonnell.
