At the 2006 census, Lucindale had a population of 301.[1] The town is best known for hosting the annual South East Field days, attracting over 26,000 visitors every March.[3]

History

The town was proclaimed in 1877 and named for Lady Jeannie Lucinda Musgrave—the wife of the Governor of South Australia, Anthony Musgrave. A school was established the following year.[4] The Post Office opened on 1 May 1877 but was known as Baker's Range for a few months.[5]

Today

Lucindale is home to a health centre, licenced post office and newsagent and a service station.[6] Education from reception to Year 12 is provided by the Lucindale Area School.[7]

The town was named Australia's tidiest town in 1994 and was a finalist in 2006.[8][9]

The town has an Australian Rules football team competing in the Kowree-Naracoorte-Tatiara Football League.[10]
