The area was discovered and mapped by Cape Catastrophe to the top of Spencer Gulf as a district - the District of Port Lincoln.

Although the council was formally established in 1880 as the District Council of Lincoln, it wasn't until 1921 that the Municipality of Port Lincoln was officially proclaimed. City status was granted to Port Lincoln on 21 January 1971


Although the district is restricted mostly to Port Lincoln, it does include all of its suburbs and a number of surrounding areas. These include:

Boston Bay, Happy Valley, Kirton Point, Lincoln Cove, Lincoln Gardens, Porter Bay and Rustlers Gully
