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

The pier and beach


Rotunda Art Gallery

Tumby Bay has all the essentials of an Eyre Peninsula 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 in[edit]

Get around[edit]



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




Tumby Bay Hotel

You can drink at the Tumby Bay Hotel, 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 Pac-Man game may give more amusement to their parents.
