After breakfast this morning we travel to Iron Knob. The area was pegged out by BHP in 1897 and due to the purity of the ore which was 60% iron, became the biggest iron ore in the country which led to the beginning of the iron ore industry in Australia. After morning tea here, we continue along the Eyre Highway to Kimba, then Kyancutta to Wudinna, which is situated at the edge of the Gawler Ranges. After a stop for lunch, we continue to Poochara before travelling to Streaky Bay. Streaky Bay is a delightful coastal township situated on the Southern Ocean adjoining the Great Australian Bight.

We continue to Port Kenny for a lunch stop before continuing East along the Peninsula to Port Lincoln for our two-night stay. Dinner this evening will be served at the hotel restaurant.

❱ 2 nights: Port Lincoln Hotel or Hilton Motel

Day 4: Sights and Sounds of Port Lincoln & Mount Dutton Bay Woolshed (BLD)
