Set the heart of the Eyre Peninsula 605km north-west of Adelaide, Lock is a small town servicing local sheep and grain farmers. It takes its name from a local landholder, Corporal Albert Lock, who was killed in action in Belgium during World War I.

The Lock Heritage Museum’s collection of old armaments, farming equipment and photographs is housed in the town’s original police station.

Over recent years Lock has attracted many visitors during the festive season for a spectacular re-enactment of the Nativity Story. More than 100 members of the community don biblical costumes to take part in the pageant which also includes live animals and carol singing.

Because of its location, Lock is a central base for exploring the peninsula’s chain of popular coastal resorts. The 37,845ha Hambridge Conservation Park to the north of Lock and Hincks Conservation Park, which preserves 66,285ha south of the town, both reflect the arid, mallee and dune systems which dominate this part of the state.
