Wow, wow, wow. We never would have experienced the beauty of South Australia without David. The beaches, the water, the undiscovered caves – amazing! We loved every minute and a special shout out to Robyn, whose delicious cooking was a pleasure to come home to. Now we know how to fish! Thankyou

A True Aussie Rippa. My wife and I spent four great days with Lunch and Australian Coastal Safaris. Our first night in town Lunch gets us a table at the best Italian restaurant in town when no tables were available. Lunch grew up in Port Lincoln area he knows where the animals are, the best sunsets, the fish in the ocean. We were treated like family ACS is a premium tour company second to none. Whatever you want Lunch will make it happen. He is the real mate the genuine article. Bottom line my wife and I are already planning a return trip and it will be a ACS extravaganza. We have an amazingly unforgettable experience while exploring the beauty and wonders of Port Lincoln especially meeting up close with the koalas. Love to come back here once again. P.S. If you are lucky enough to spend anytime with Lunch ask him about his day in the dunes with Joe and Lyn. It was memorable and will never be forgotten

Loss of words to describe this experience it was so good. My husband, myself & our 3 young children had a full day tour with Lunch as our guide. Both Lunch & Renae were wonderful to deal with prior to our tour ensuring what we wanted to experience was covered including our catering needs. The day was such a personalised experience allowing us to see the beauty of Port Lincoln National Park that we wouldn’t have been able to do on our own. We definitely recommend booking a tour with Australian Coastal Safaris and we will be doing it again some time in the future with a few additions on our itinerary now we know a bit more about what can be offered.

We’ve had four great days here in Port Lincoln. Your beautiful villa was more than we’d expected and the hospitality was excellent. Thanks for taking care of everything and look forward to returning sometime again.

Lunch & Renae of Australian Coastal Safaris are great people, caring for their customers by providing unique, personalized experiences in a small groups setting! No large busloads of people here. They also work with many other local venders to offer additional experiences centric to Port Lincoln based on customer interests; OnShore fishing, Fish-markets, wine tours, shark cage diving, etc. Each day was a fun surprise learning about Port Lincoln & Australia while seeing native wildlife in their natural settings as seen in the 'bush'. While with Lunch, we went sand-surfing, 4-wheeling over sand dunes and visited Koala's on private property. At the end of the day, we enjoyed a Master Food Class provided by an accomplished local Chef/Owner. The food and company were awesome! If you're going to Port Lincoln for the first time, I highly recommend contacting Lunch & Renae. They took great care of us from airport pickup to airport drop-off and customized our adventure to match our interests. Over our 3 week Australia/New Zealand trip this was by far our favorite part!

Hi Renae, just a quick note to thank you for the wonderful birding day you arranged for us with ranger Peter. Moving around Lincoln NP Peter helped us find 50 species several of which were new to me at least and others we had only briefly seen before. Peter was excellent company and very knowledgeable. The delicious lunch will be long remembered and talked about as we tell others about our great experience with Australian Coastal Safaris.
With warm regards, Barbara and Joan Australia
Aus Coastal Safari Crew! Thanks for looking after us & showing us all the amazing 'stuff' in your part of the world! You really did make us feel like part of your family. Take care!

I know everyone in the group was thrilled with your tour, David. You were a tremendous guide and every aspect of the tour and yourself exceeded my expectations by a whole lot even when I had been telling everyone this probably was going to be the best shore excursion of our entire cruise and you didn't disappoint me at all. The time in Mikirra Station will always be the outstanding aspect of the tour, but then there was the lunch and Coffin Bay National Park. But even the local Australians said they had never seen so many wild koalas in one place, or even in one tree!!!!!!!! Also the nice little touch at the end of the tour went over tremendously well, when your little tablecloth went on the containers and vast amount of treats showed up. Thanks again for everything. Word got around the ship quickly about how great the tour was!
Dear Lunch, we’re sorry we did not get to meet you and Mandy, but thanks for leaving Renae and Clutters to show us all that Port Lincoln has to offer, and Robyn – the world’s greatest chef who has fed us well and entertained us with wonderful stories. We love Port Lincoln and hate to leave, what a wonderful way to end our Australian adventure!

I booked a trip with Dave 'Lunch' for my grandpa's 80th birthday. He planned the whole 4 day itinerary according to our desires and capabilities, including trips to Mikkira Station, the National Park and beautiful spots along the coastline. He also led our 'Hunt and Gather' trip where we snorkeled for Abalone and went fishing for local Salmon. Aside from being an extremely knowledgeable and accommodating tour guide, he also played the role of chef and photographer, packing us lunch everyday and taking some great snaps so that we had something to remember the trip by. Dave will go out of his way to make sure the trip is everything you want and more, the sights you will see are breathtaking, and if you are lucky enough to meet his wonderful family you will gain an insight into what he calls 'country hospitality,' however by our standards the invitation and experience was a true reflection that his tours are far more than just a job. He knows the land better than the back of his hand and you will be thoroughly entertained by his stories growing up in beautiful Port Lincoln.
If you are looking for a trip to remember, get in touch with Dave and he will sort you out!

We did not know to expect but as the day unfolded we were very happy with the fantastic experience. From the lookout, to the docks, to the original Tuna fishing boat, to a fish processing facility, to oyster tasting, to lunch, to the rugged coast line, to a farm with kangaroos, emus AND KOALAS! So many koalas close up within touching distance. (Of course) we did not touch but took lots of photos. Finish with cheese and wine platter. Perfect
