Port MacDonnell is widely known as the once-home of
acclaimed poet Adam Lindsay Gordon, but South Australia's
most southern port has also developed a strong reputation
for its bountiful crayfish, and is now referred to as
Australia's Rock Lobster Capital.
Fishing is a popular pursuit for this town, with the
jetty and local landing a frequent fishing spot. Other
attractions in Port MacDonnell are the picturesque Clarke's
Park, a self-guided heritage walk through the town,
a visit to Dingley Dell, the local penguin colony within
the coastline coves, or a trek through Germein Wetlands.
