Port Neill is the perfect location for your family getaway.
Port Neill is an attractive coastal town on the eastern shores of Eyre Peninsula, its white, sandy beaches and clear, calm waters, Port Neill is perfect for fishing, boating, sailing, water skiing or skin diving providing for visitors of all ages. Situated 3kms off the main Whyalla - Port Lincoln Hwy, Port Neill offers one of the cleanest and safest swimming beaches.. The lawns on the foreshore and shelters provide an ideal site for the whole family, plus you are within walking distance to the town jetty. A focal point on the foreshore is the historic anchor from the Lady Kinnard, which was shipwrecked south of Port Neill, along with a World War II cannon.
The historic ‘Green Shed’ - once one of many goods sheds from Port Neill’s bustling seaport days - is a popular spot for barbecues and lazy afternoon picnics. The town is also a favourite with anglers, and the Port Neil boat ramp and breakwater make launching a breeze in all weather conditions.
