Kingston South East, SA

Referred to as the ‘Gateway to the South East’, Kingston is a coastal town nestled on the picturesque waters of Lacapede Bay and located at the southern end of the Coorong.

Lacapede Bay with its relative calmness, offers families the safety of its waters and long stretches of sandy shores, an invitation to beach goers to enjoy a wide range of water sports and fishing opportunities.

Visit the historic Cape Jaffa Lighthous. Once situated on the Margaret Brock Reef of the shores of Cape Jaffa, it was dismantled and re-erected on the Kingston foreshore and is now open for inspection and tours. For those interested in history, the township of Kingston was officially established in 1858. Many historic buildings still stand as a reminder of the past.

Kingston is home to an Analematic Sundial, the second in Australia and one of only eight in the world.

The area south of Kingston is flourishing with the establishment of numerous wineries, so for lovers of fine wines a visit to this new and exciting area will offer a selection of cellar doors.

Situated between Adelaide and Melbourne, Kingston provides an opportunity for a relaxing holiday or an overnight break.

The fishing port of Cape Jaffa is only 25 kilometres away. Cape Jaffa is home to the lobster fishing fleet, who unload their catch at the jetty each afternoon from October to April. Cape Jaffa is also a popular destination for diving and fishing, and those looking for a relaxing holiday.
