Way back in 1836 Colonel William Light surveyed the area as the potential state capital, and while it was ultimately rejected due to him not finding a major fresh water supply, it took only another three years before the first free settlers sailed into here. Two more ships followed quickly and by mid 1839 there were 150 people working hard to create a new settlement. This is the exact location where they came ashore and met the local Barngarla people, who thankfully showed them a small fresh spring. Without that kindness Port Lincoln would have been doomed from the start. No RV parking - park down at the Maratime Museum and walk up.

This is a natural spring the pioneers used when landing at Pt Lincoln in 1839 it is not for drinking today and just a trickle
