Port Lincoln Tunarama Festival Update 

In July 2023 the Port Lincoln Tunarama Festival Inc. committee announced that after 60 successful Tunarama Festivals, the event won’t be held in 2024 and that the committee itself will commence winding up.

“We are immensely proud as a committee of the work of past and present members, volunteers, quest ambassadors and supporters to create and uphold a tradition known as the Tunarama Festival for our community for over 60 years, however after several years of COVID and other factors, it is time for the event as we know it to end,” said Tunarama President Sharon Humenick.

“The festival has been supported by many local businesses over the years, including major partners Bendigo Community Bank, the City of Port Lincoln and the South Australian Tourism Commission, however times are changing and there is opportunity for a fresh look at the event and how it could be run in the future,” said Ms Humenick.

“I would also like to publicly thank the current Tunarama committee for their commitment and dedication over the past few months under difficult circumstances,” said Ms Humenick.

What is the Port Lincoln Tunarama Festival?

Home to the World Famous Tuna Toss, the Port Lincoln Tunarama Festival was held annually on the closest weekend to the Australia Day holiday in January. With a wide array of participation events, arts and cultural displays, local market stalls, and some of the freshest seafood in the world, there truly was always something for the whole family to enjoy.

Each year visitors could experience the Eyre Peninsula’s food and wine, enjoy art, music and the beautiful surroundings. There were always plenty of activities for children to enjoy also such as performances, face painting and competitions. The event highlight was the annual World Championship Tuna Toss.
