Jump to: navigation, search

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

Understand[edit]

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.

Drink[edit][add listing]

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.
