FLY AWAY TO PORT LINCOLN

Our first fly away for the year will be to Port Lincoln on the March long weekend.  The tentative itinerary for the weekend includes a walk in the Lincoln National Park, a chance to indulge in some Coffin Bay oysters, and visits to other places of interest.

If you are planning to come along, you will need to book your own accommodation.  I have not made a block booking this time but suggest you try the Limani Motel (from $120 per night; tel. 8682 2200) which is a short walk to town.  If you prefer to stay somewhere else, the bus will pick you up from your accommodation.

I suggest you book your accommodation soon.

Also, please let me know if you are coming so we can make sure we have enough transport.
