Kingston South East - South AustraliaEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
Referred to as the 'Gateway to the South East', Kingston is a coastal town nestled on the picturesque waters of Lacapede Bay 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. It is an invitation to beach goers to enjoy a wide range of water sports and fishing opportunities.
Visit the historic Cape Jaffa Lighthouse. Once situated on the Margaret Brock Reef, off 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.
