Tumby Bay

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Tumby Bay is a town on the Eyre Peninsula around 1 hours drive north of Port Lincoln.


Tumby Bay has all the essentials of an Eyre Penisula coastal town, the beach, the jetty, and the pub facing the water. Good fishing, and a laid back lifestyle.

The town has a largely seachange or retired resident population, with some residents even doing the daily commute down the highway to Port Lincoln.

Get around[edit]



View of the town from the pier
  • Swim from the pier. There is a sandy beach, and a swimming pontoon in deep water.




You can drink at the Tumby Bay Hotel [1], dating from the late 1800s, or the Seabreeze which is a relative newcomer built in the early 1900s. Both serve evening meals and have accommodation. The Tumby Bay Hotel has a rather odd collection of old video games machines in a separate room for the kids, but the pacman game may give more amusement to their parents.



Get out[edit]
