The District Council of Cleve is derived from Jervois County, which was incorporated into the District Council of Franklin Harbour when that council was first established in 1880. In 1911, the western end of the county was severed from Franklin Harbour and was declared a separate council.

The district's major towns were well established when the new council was announced, with Cleve established in 1879 and Arno Bay in 1883 under the name of 'Bligh'. Darke Peak was established in 1914, only three years after the council came into being.

Since before the council's establishment, the economy of the region has been based on agriculture, with cereal crops and livestock production prominent. Aquaculture is an emerging industry in the coastal towns.[3]


The three major towns of the district are:

Other smaller towns and localities in the council area are: Boonerdo, Boothby, Campoona, Caralue, Darke, Jamieson, Kielpa, Mann, Murlong, Pascoe, Roberts, Rudall, Smeaton, Verran, Wharminda and Yadnarie.[4]


Cleve has the biggest selection of retail shops, including a supermarket, clothing stores, banking facilities, professional & medical services, service industries, post office, rural supplies, hotel, mechanical & RAA services, newsagency and pharmacy. Between them, Arno Bay and Darke Peal provide a general store, a post office, fuel suppliers, mechanical services and a hotel.

The district has an Area school, Pre-school and TAFE campus serving educational needs and a hospital for health needs.

A number of sporting facilities and clubs operate in the area including basketball, lawn bowls, cricket, darts, football, golf, netball, softball, a swimming pool and tennis.[3]
