Description:
The City of Port Lincoln is a local government area located on the southern tip of the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia. It consists only of the city of Port Lincoln and its suburbs. It is completely surrounded on land by the District Council of Lower Eyre Peninsula, which also has offices in Port Lincoln.

History

The area was discovered and mapped by Matthew Flinders in 1802, naming the area Port Lincoln after the county of Lincolnshire in England. Settlers arrived in 1839 and later that year Governor George Gawler proclaimed the area from Cape Catastrophe to the top of Spencer Gulf as a district - the District of Port Lincoln.

Although the council was formally established in 1880 as the District Council of Lincoln, it wasn't until 1921 that the Municipality of Port Lincoln was officially proclaimed. City status was granted to Port Lincoln on 21 January 1971!

Localities

Although the district is restricted mostly to Port Lincoln, it does include all of its suburbs and a number of surrounding areas. These include:

Boston Bay, Happy Valley, Kirton Point, Lincoln Cove, Lincoln Gardens, Porter Bay, and Rustlers Gully
