Mount Compass is a town in the Fleurieu Peninsula, on the A13 south of Adelaide, and North of Victor Harbour. It is a small community, traditionally supported by farming. Both market gardens and dairy have proved lucrative in the area.[2]

The name is said to have come from the 1840s, when Governor Gawler supposedly lost his compass near the site.[3]

There is also a local area school that covers from years R-12 with the focus farm project that is run on the adjacent farm to the school.
