South Australia: Cape Jervis
Incorporating photos and Information from Michael Greenslade's former Australian Towns, Cities and Highways site

Cape Jervis, located at the south-western tip of the Fleurieu Peninsula is a small fishing village most notably known for being the northern terminus for the Sealink ferry across to Kangaroo Island. The town offers a pub, store, a wind farm and a unique lighthouse at the ocean's edge. To the south of the town is a great lookout offering excellent westerly views over the town and over to Kangaroo Island. Deep Creek Conservation Park also lies nearby where camping is permitted. It also marks the start of the great Heysen Trail walking track which continues all the way to the Flinders Ranges.
