a favoured destination...

As the days lengthen and the weather warms our thoughts turn to making plans to enjoy the great outdoors. Mindful of Australian State and Territory COVID restrictions and our personal and social responsibility to be COVID Safe, many are looking to travel and feed their adventurous curiosity. Travel however does not mean having to be far away. With some of the most unique and diverse landscapes, ecosystems, and natural wonders in the world the time is right to stay local, support local business and to explore our own back yard. The time is right to explore the very same places that international tourists can not wait to once again experience. To explore our own communities and neighbouring towns.

Whether you are manning the sails, scuba diving, fishing or simply exploring new frontiers under the guidance of an experienced captain and licensed charter boat operator, boating is an activity which can be taken-up regardless of experience, age or gender. With an extensive coastal shoreline, rivers and estuaries that cover over 6,000 kilometres, South Australia offers an abundance of places to discover how boating soothes the soul and can help recharge your state of mind. Located on the Great Australian Bight in the Limestone Coast region of South Australia, Port Macdonnell is a favoured destination for many.

Located about 480 kilometres South East of Adelaide and 30 kilometres from Mount Gambier, Port Macdonnell is home to one of the largest lobster fishing fleets in the country. Surrounded by pristine coastline and parklands, Port Macdonnell is a popular fishing port and holiday destination. Once a busy shipping port, the town heavily supports the professional and recreational fishing and summer tourism industries. Take a fishing charter, go snorkelling or sailing. Visit the Port MacDonnell & District Maritime Museum, witness the natural beauty of Cape Northumberland, or emotively relive the final voyage of the Admella. With seaside cottages, bed and breakfasts, cabins, caravan parks, hotels and motels, Port MacDonnell and surrounding areas offer a wide variety of accommodation and recreational choice to suit every taste and budget.
