The Tumby Bay District Council is a local government area of South Australia covering an area of the North Eastern Eyre Peninsula. Established in 1906, only six years after the town of Tumby Bay was established, the district was annexed from the former District Council of Port Lincoln to form the present council.
As well as Tumby Bay, The Tumby Bay District Council covers a number of larger towns including:
A number of smaller areas are also incorporated in the district. These include: Brooker, Butler, Butler Tanks, Carrow, Cockaleechie, Dixson, Hutchison, Koppio, Lipson Cove, Moody, Moreenia, Mount Hill, Nicholls, Redcliff's, Stokes, Thuruna, Trinity Haven, Uranno, Waratta Vale, Yallunda Flat and Yaranyacka.
The Area has long been a tourist destination, with fishing being a major attraction. A large marina was constructed in Tumby Bay in 2001, which has allowed for easier launching of boats, as well as development of nearby areas.
