Relax and float across the Spencer Gulf
Fancy exploring Port Lincoln and its surrounds but worried that it seems so far away? The Eyre Peninsula is accessible by ferry. Simply board at Wallaroo and relax for two and a half hours, and drive off again at Lucky Bay. From Lucky Bay, you can drive to any number of beautiful and remote beachside attractions.

As of March 2022, a car and one driver costs $175, while walk-on passengers travel from $12 for children, $25 for students, $30 concession card holders and $38 for adults.

It is essential to check the timetable because this varies seasonally. In the warmer months (1st September to 30th April) the ferry is scheduled to leave Wallarroo at 8:00 am or 1:30 pm on Monday & Friday, and 9:30 am Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday. Saturday it leaves Wallaroo at 9:00 am and Sunday it sails at noon.

The ferry departs Lucky Bay at 10:30 am & 4:00 pm on Monday & Friday, noon on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Saturday or a leisurely 14:30 on Sunday.

During winter (1st May to 31st August), there is no afternoon option from Wallaroo on weekdays, and a maintenance period is scheduled in July.

Food and drink are available on the cruise, ranging from hot dogs and sandwiches to cake and coffee.

Is the journey rough on the open seas? Suitable for those suffering from seasickness?

The trip was smooth the day I went and I barely noticed I was at sea. I am told they cancel if it is too rough or unsafe. I'm not sure when they notify passengers.
