Understand[edit]

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.

Drink[edit]

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.
