Description:
Gulf St Vincent is a large inlet of water on the southern coast of Australia, in the state of South Australia. It is bordered by Yorke Peninsula to its west coast and Fleurieu Peninsula on its east coast. Kangaroo Island sits across the opening to the Southern Ocean on the southwest.

Adelaide, the South Australian capital midway along the gulf's east coast. Other towns located on the gulf, from west to east include Edithburgh, Port Vincent, Ardrossan and Port Wakefield and Normanville. It was named "Gulph of St. Vincent" by Matthew Flinders on 30 March 1802. Prior to then, it had been known as Golphe Josephine.

Port Stanvac Desalination Plant which, as of 2010, is under construction on Gulf St Vincent's shore in Lonsdale, South Australia, will supply the Adelaide metropolitan area with desalinated water from the gulf.

Environment

The Gulf teems with crustacea and polychaeta, as well as various species of sea squirts and sea urchins. The benthos is a soft sediment shelf, with species of zosteraceae around the mouth of the Port River.
