Lock - SA RVFT

Lock is situated in the centre of the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia, 606 kilometres west of Adelaide. First settlers arrived in the region in the 1860s, but it did not initially thrive due to the low levels of rainfall. The town was named after Corporal Albert Lock who was a local landholder killed in action in Belgium in 1917.


RV travellers will find Lock a convenient place to stop in for a couple of nights, with local shopping facilities including IGA, service station and a mechanic. Parking for up to 96 hours is available at the Lock Lions Caravan Park, for a fee of $10 per vehicle per night. Toilets, showers, water and a free dump point are provided at the caravan park.


North of Lock is the Hambidge Wilderness Protection Area, approximately 25,400 hectares of Mallee country. Prominent Hill (143 metres high) is accessible via a track from the south offering a wide view over the park.
