Corny Point, South Australia
The lighthouse at Corny Point
Corny Point is a settlement in South Australia at the north-western tip of the "boot" of Yorke Peninsula. It was named this by Matthew Flinders in March 1802 because it appeared to be a growth on the toe of Yorke Peninsula. A lighthouse was built in 1882. The first pastoral lease was taken up in 1846. The site is notable for outcrops of Palaeoproterozoic gneisses of the Lincoln Complex on the wave cut platform at the base of the low limestone cliffs.
