With spectacular coastal features and lookouts along the coastline, visit Port MacDonnell to soak up the Limestone Coast experience.
Seaside drives allow you to view the rugged coastline and penguin rookery. Sheltered from the southern ocean, the harbour provides excellent fishing options for children and adults from jetties or small boats. A boat ramp provides launching for boats of all sizes to enter the southern ocean area. The Port MacDonnell Off Shore Fishing Club provides service to those boats wishing to go off shore and should be contacted before attempting these trips.
The town has a strong seafaring history, detailed at the Maritime Museum. Many shipwrecks along the coast are now dive sites and can be toured with local dive tour companies. The town is also home to Australia’s largest southern rock lobster fleet.
Poet Adam Lindsay Gordon also called Port MacDonnell home and his cottage is maintained at Dingley Dell. Open to the public it is a great way to learn of his poetry and local exploits.
