Cruise Ship Visits

Port Lincoln is a popular destination for cruise ships. The cruise ship season runs from October to April with the number of ships visiting Port Lincoln varying year to year.

With each ship visit there can be up to 3000 passengers and 1000 crew that disembark and visit the city. These large numbers of visitors significantly increase the number of people in the CBD, which is positively managed with the wonderful assistance of our Cruise Ship Volunteers. In previous years Port Lincoln has received accolades as being voted as best port by passengers according to South Australian Tourism Commission market research.

The 2016/2017 cruise ship season will see 5 cruise ships visit our shores between October 2016 and April 2017.
