Port Lincoln to Ceduna

A shorter drive today for the boys but before they headed along the coast line in a westerly direction they went to a tyre shop to have the rear wheels balanced .


The workshops in Birdsville and Marree of course had no balancing equipment as nobody on these rough roads up there would notice the difference between an unbalanced and balanced wheel .


The service of the tyre shop in Port Lincoln was unbelievable


Between arrival and having 2 rear and one spare wheel balanced and back in place it took a mere 20 minutes.


Wine farms


After the tyre service Team Lipstick wanted to visit another wine farm on the hills of Port Lincoln but unfortunately they were closed for business today and the boys therefor decided to drive on towards Ceduna along the coastal road.


Their next stop was at Coffin Bay

Coffin Bay, is a town at the southern extremity of the Eyre Peninsula, a wheat growing area of South Australia.

At the 2016 census, Coffin Bay had a population of 611.The town is situated on the western side of the southern tip of Eyre Peninsula about 46 km from Port Lincoln.

The population swells during holiday seasons to more than 2,000 people due to its proximity to the Coffin Bay National Park. It is a popular location for boating, sailing, swimming, water-skiing, skindiving and wind-surfing, as well as fishing (rock, surf, angling and boat).Oyster farming is conducted in the quiet waters of Coffin Bay

The boys decided to have a stop over in this neat little town and try out some of their products.
