The Tumby Bay District, incorporating Tumby Bay, Port Neill, Ungarra and
Lipson townships and the surrounding area is a breathtaking part of the Eyre
Peninsula. Our temperate climate, peaceful lifestyle and friendly locals will
ensure that you and your family relax and unwind during your stay.
Pristine white sandy beaches, unspoilt coastline, crystal clear blue waters
and scenic sheltered bays offer year round fishing, boating, sailing and
sightseeing. Our coast is perfect for swimming, diving and all aquatics, with
endless water fun and idyllic summer days for everyone. Relax with an ice
cream on the grassy foreshore whilst the kids enjoy the playground, jumping
platform and pontoon or take your jet ski out and have some fun in the water
As a renowned fishing destination, you can look forward to reeling in a great
catch by jetty, boat, charter, beach or rock fishing, or you can venture out to
the famous Sir Joseph Banks Group of Islands for one of the most memorable
fishing trips you’ll ever have. Tumby Bay is one of only three places to see the
Marine Sea Emblem of SA diving for a glimpse of the Leafy Seadragon is well
worth the effort.
Away from the beach, there are many things to keep you occupied: walking
trails and boardwalks, bird watching, lookouts, beautiful parks and gardens,
picnic and barbeque areas, museums, gold, art and craft galleries, tennis,
cycling, lawn bowls, cricket, football and more.
Scenic half and full day drives into the heart of the district feature flora and
fauna with colours as varied as the seasons. Green in winter, gold in summer
and a multicoloured display of wildflowers in spring. The rolling Koppio Hills
with magnificent gum trees and prolific birdlife are amazing.
Tumby Bay and Port Neill are attractive coastal towns, well equipped with
wide ranging services and varied accommodation and touring visitor
facilities, Tumby Bay being the major service centre for the district. You can
relax and spoil yourself with coffee, breakfast, lunch and evening meals in
any of the bakery, cafés or hotels, with live entertainment often featuring in
the local bars.
Whatever you choose to do or wherever you stay you can be assured of a
memorable experience. You will want to return again and again to this year
round holiday destination.
