General Information:

The Lincoln Highway links Port Lincoln and the east coast of the Eyre Peninsula with Port Augusta. Starting at the Eyre Highway, west of Port Augusta, the highway heads south to the industrial city of Whyalla. From Whyalla, the highway heads south-west, following the east coast of the Eyre Peninsula, eventually entering the prosperous fishing port of Port Lincoln.

The Flinders Highway connects Port Lincoln with Ceduna, via the west coast of the Eyre Peninsula, travelling in a generally northwesterly direction. The highway is named after the explorer Matthew Flinders, who explored this area during the early 19th century.
