Port Neill is an attractive coastal town on the eastern shore of Eyre Peninsula. Although only 3km off the Whyalla-Port Lincoln highway, it is a tranquil backwater.

The main beach is acknowledged as one of the cleanest and safest on the peninsula, and is also a favourite recreational playground for boaties, anglers, sailors, water-skiers and divers. Foreshore lawns are well-equipped with BBQ facilities and shelters.

The local attractions include the Fauser Museum display of vintage cars, motor-bikes and farm machinery and Harry (the Birdman of Port Neill) Swiggs’ native and domestic bird collection which includes a majestic wedge-tailed eagle. Bush-walking tracks in the Hinks Conservation Park wind through broombrush and wattles which support a variety of wildlife.

The Seaview Hotel was opened as the Port Neill in 1911, but no beer crossed the bar for a year until the original publican fudged the population figures by paying people to live in humpies and convincing the authorities the town was big enough to justify a liquor licence.
