Port Lincoln

Monday 10th March 2008, Port Lincoln.

More touring today with a trip to Tumby Bay via a small town of Koppio. There is a Smithies Museum at Koppio that we thought would be interesting, and it certainly was. It is basically a collection of memorabilia from one family of several generations, plus some donated farm equipment, and was very reminiscent of the old days. It was certainly worth the look, especially the old machinery. We then went on to Tumby Bay, about 45K north of Port Lincoln on the route we came down. We had heard about this town and was interested to have a look, but it was not up to our expectations, nothing against it, being a sleepy little town that would be good for a resting period, but not as big as we thought. We were also interested in a mangrove walk, but this too was disappointing, being very short over a small area of mangroves. That filled in the day anyway, but we did make the decision that if in the area again we would prefer to stay at Port Lincoln.
