We booked the Birdwatching on Eyre Peninsula 3-day tour and it was amazing. It was incredibly easy to book the tour, with customizing it to include everything we wanted plus providing us details of all the places we would be visiting. Our tour guide, Fran, was absolutely exceptional. Her knowledge went far beyond just identifying bird species. She took us to some stunning spots in and around Port Lincoln, as far north as Lipson Cove and Tumby Bay, and throughout both Lincoln National Park and Coffin Bay National Park. As a prominent member of the birdwatching and tourism community, she was able to tap into a local network of birdwatchers to help us find everything we wanted to see. Although there was a large amount of driving involved, the vehicle had fantastic visibility and was very clean and comfortable. Its 4 wheel drive capabilities allowed us to go places no other tourists have the opportunity to visit. Happy hour at Mikkira Station was a highlight. The homestead provided us a fantastic insight into the history of the property and a Koala was in nearly every tree. We enjoyed some excellent local wine accompanied by delicious fruit and cheese. There are few properties in the world as beautiful as this place. We customized our tour to include an oyster tour. The tour guide, Chris, had deep knowledge and experience as an oyster farmer and gave us a fabulous introduction to the oyster industry in the region. We took a boat around Coffin Bay, visiting both older and newer oyster farming patches and were incredibly lucky to see two beautiful Osprey. We concluded the tour with a tray of delicious oysters, before heading off to a fabulous seafood platter lunch. The food was ready on arrival and utterly delicious. Overall we saw over 80 species over 3 days. Aside from the seafood lunch, we enjoyed a wonderful picnic lunch every day and either afternoon tea or happy hour. All of the food provided was delicious. The accommodation booked for us was excellent and convenient and we were also provided transportation to and from the airport.
