Kingston SE is located at the southeastern end of Encounter Bay and the Coorong. The town was named after George Strickland Kingston, an Australian politician and architect. The 'SE' extension (South East) on its name was to distinguish it from another 'Kingston' in the state which is now officially named "Kingston-On-Murray". The northern entrance to the town is dominated by a big lobster known as "Larry" by the locals. The population swells during peak holiday seasons and it industries include winemaking, sheep and dairy farming and of course fishing.
