Port Lincoln is a city located on lower Eyre Peninsula in the South Australia state, Australia. Port Lincoln lies on Boston Bay's shore, which opens into Spencer Gulf to the east. It is the largest city found in the West Coast region, located approximately 280 km (174 ml) as the crow flies from State's capital Adelaide (646 km /401 ml by road). Port Lincoln is reputed to feature the most millionaires per capita in Australia. It also claims to be Australia's "Seafood Capital".
Port Lincoln has a total area of 136.3 km2 (52.6 ml2) and a population of 16,150 inhabitants (2015 census). The economy is based on grain-handling facilities (with capacity of more than 337,500 tonnes), canning and fish processing works, wool, beef and lambs, and tuna farming for Japanese market. Port Lincoln is home of the largest commercial fishing fleet in Australia and now boasts a thriving aquaculture industry.
The city of Port Lincoln also functions as the regional centre for corporate services, government administration and commerce to Eyre Peninsula, though a lot of State Government functions are little by little phased out because State Government becomes more concentrated in Adelaide. In the past years, housing demand led to boom in property development, both commercial and residential.
A proposal was made by Centrex Metals to export iron ore via an expanded facility at the existing wharf of Port Lincoln. It was approved in October 2009 by the South Australian Government. However, the proposal was abandoned following strong public opposition due to concern of potential harm that dust plumes or spillage might cause to the reputation or profitability of the dominant seafood industry.
Port Lincoln is a tourism centre, due to the coastal locality and scenic beauty. Ready access to both the Great Australian Bight and Spencer Gulf mark Port Lincoln out as blue water playground for scuba diving, yachting, game fishing and shark cage diving.
Coffin Bay National Park, Kellidie Bay Conservation Park and Lincoln National Park are within easy driving distance.
