Port Lincoln has two friendships with International Cities. Please see below for further information on each of these relationships.
Lincoln is a small historic city situated in the East Midlands region in England. Lincoln has a population of approximately 85,000 people, with the main industries being agriculture and fresh produce. Tourists visit Lincoln to see the amazing historic buildings including the Cathedral and the Castle. The friendship agreement with Lincoln was signed in January of 1991.
Muroto is quite similar to Port Lincoln in the fact that it is a coastal city with the main industry being aquaculture. This is one of the reasons the friendship agreement between the two cities was formed. On March 27 1991 five members of the Muroto Delegation, including the Mayor visited Port Lincoln to sign the friendship agreement. Since 1992 a delegation of adults and students from the two Port Lincoln high schools have visited Muroto in the April school holidays. For all but one of these years, a delegation of adults and students from Muroto have visited Port Lincoln during either September or October. All of these exchanges are home stay arrangements which offers the attendees the opportunity to be involved in the different cultures first hand.
