Traveling north from Port Lincoln the next town is Tumby Bay. This a great spot and a recommended stop over. Small yes, but all essential services at hand.
The bay was first explored and given the name Tumby Bay by Captain Matthew Flinders in 1802, after a parish in Lincolnshire, England. In 1840 Governor Gawler renamed the bay Harvey ('s) Bay after one other district's early settlers. Then on November 15, 1900 the town of Tumby was proclaimed by Governor Tennyson, and the name of the bay itself reverted to Tumby Bay. On June 14, 1984 the town officially became known as Tumby Bay.
