Port Lincoln Wildlife Encounters
2 DAYS, 2 NIGHTS
Indulge your wild side
An exceptional opportunity to get a first-hand look at the region’s extraordinary wildlife and unique birdlife.
Spend two full days exploring the likes of Big Swamp (freshwater) Wetlands, Coffin Bay National Park, Avoid Bay, Mount Dutton Bay Conservation Park, Port Lincoln National Park, and Mikkira Station where an incredible diversity of environments is also home to some of Australia’s rare, endangered and vulnerable wildlife. Your Australian Coastal Safaris guide will point out these at-risk species along with threatened plant life.
Your tour also includes a visit to an oyster farm, where you’ll learn about, and sample, fresh Pacific and Native Agassi Oysters including the farming practices involved in growing, harvesting and processing this valuable marine mollusc.
Look forward to encountering wildlife such as western grey kangaroos, emus, koalas, western brown and tiger snakes (in Summer), shingleback and blue tongue lizards and geckos. There’s also a chance you might also come across Rosenberg’s goanna, echidnas, brush-tailed bettongs, bush rats, western pygmy possums and more.
Bird enthusiasts should keep their binoculars handy for sightings of seabirds, shorebirds, songbirds, parrots, and raptors including osprey and white-bellied sea eagles. In fact, on this tour there’s a good chance you’ll spot up to 60 different species of birdlife.
