                      Kingscote - The Past
    The South Australian Company was established by an Act of Parliament in England. Its charter was to establish the first colony of South Australia somewhere along the arid coast between the Great Australian Bight and Port Phillip Bay.

    By 1836 the company had acquired a fleet of ships and chose Kangaroo Island to start South Australia’s first settled colony.

    On the 27 of July 12 1836 the barque Duke of York anchored in Nepean Bay and began the first formal settlement in South Australia at the place just north of Kingscote known as Reeves Point. Several other ships soon joined the Duke of York. Passengers were “Capitalists” and some carefully selected workers, many with families.

    Challenged by a shortage of fresh water and building timber on Kangaroo Island , the formal settlement was to last less than four years. At its peak some 300 people lived there, in 42 dwellings with other other buildings constructed as required. Some persistent individuals stayed on and formed the basis of a community, which prided itself on a strong sense of independence.

    Kingscote was previously known as Queenscliffe
