Suburb Overview

Tumby Bay is a coastal town situated on the Spencer Gulf, on the eastern coast of Eyre Peninsula in South Australia, 45 km north of Port Lincoln. The town of Tumby Bay is the major population centre of the District Council of Tumby Bay, and the centre of an agricultural district farming cereal crops and sheep, as well as having established fishing and tourism industries.

Tumby Bay is a beautiful coastal township of 1200 residents, who have chosen to establish livelihoods, raise families and retire in a safe and serene environment. Where the ocean meets our shoreline, you will find a relaxed yet well-appointed town and district with all the amenities and access to adventures that form pleasurable living, together with the openness to accommodate visitors and wanderers. This is a community where peace and potential abound, and which those who value family, friendship, fun and future are happy and proud to call their home.

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.

The earliest settlers to the district arrived in the 1840s, and farmed the area with wheat and sheep predominantly. The town soon grew into an important grain storage and loading point, with a jetty constructed in 1874, only the second to be built on the Eyre Peninsula. This provided a much needed outlet for the copper ore which was coming from the Burrowing Mine. The original jetty was taken down in 1999 due to safety concerns, and a new one constructed.

The town's first school was opened in 1881 as 'Tumby', and the district's first hospital opened in 1939.

In 2011, Tumby Bay hosted the popular event Triple J's One Night Stand on the 2nd April 2011, featuring the bands Birds of Tokyo, Art vs. Science and The Jezabels and locally "Unearthed" musician Joshy Willo. The town's population swelled from 1000 to over 12,000 for the event.

Tumby Bay lies on the large, sheltered bay of the same name on the western side of Spencer Gulf. Much of the land surrounding Tumby Bay is used for agriculture. The coast is predominantly white, sandy beaches, on which the town itelf is situated, as well as towering cliffs to the south.

Inside the bay, Tumby Island is the only island but further offshore lie the Sir Joseph Banks Group, a small archipelago that is easily accessed by boat from Tumby Bay.

Like much of coastal South Australia, Tumby Bay experiences a Mediterranean climate with warm to hot summers and moderately wet winters.

Since it was first settled, Tumby Bay has predominantly been an agriculturally driven town, with cereal crops, sheep and beef commonly farmed at the present. As with many towns on the Eyre Peninsula, Tumby Bay also has a well-established professional fishing industry.

Like many towns on the Eyre Peninsula, it is a popular holiday destination during the summer months.
