Port Lincoln is a city on the lower Eyre Peninsula in South Australia. It is situated on the shore of Boston Bay, which opens eastward into Spencer Gulf. It is the largest city in the West Coast region, and is located approximately 280 km from Adelaide. The city is reputed to have the most millionaires per capita in Australia. The town claims to be the “Seafood Capital of Australia”. British naval explorer Matthew Flinders discovered Boston Bay on in 1802. He named the body of water, Port Lincoln, in honour of his place of birth, Lincoln. As a result Port Lincoln is twinned with Lincoln in the UK.
