Beachport, situated along the southern borders of the Australian mainland, is a small coastal town in the state of South Australia. Immediately fronting the Great Australian Bight, the community is located some 385 kilometres south-east of Adelaide, the state capital. While previously known as Rivoli, the area was renamed on 23 May 1878 in honour of Sir Michael Hicks Beach, former British Secretary of State for the Colonies. It has an estimated population of 346 residents.
Officially proclaimed a port on 21 November 1878, Beachport is part of the Local Government Area of the Wattle Range Council. The area is within the State District of Mackillop (in the Legislative Assembly of South Australia) and the Federal Division of Barker (in the Australian House of Representatives). The community's neighbouring localities include Millicent, Naracoorte, and Robe.
Thanks to its cultural, historical, and natural heritage, Beachport today is a popular tourist destination in South Australia:
Visitors who wish to experience a sample Beachport's culture will enjoy participating in one of the town's regular events, the Beachport Market Day. Alternatively, those who wish to learn about the community's history will benefit from a visit to the Memorial Lookout and the National Trust Museum.
Beachport has a number of sites that regularly attract both local and visiting tourists. Some of the most popular locations within the area include the Beachport Jetty, Pool of Siloam, The Lagoon, and Woolley Lake.
Beachport also has some parks for its residents to spend their leisure time in. These include Beachport Caravan Park, Beachport Conservation Park, Centennial Park, and Penguin Island Conservation Park.
