|Sir Richard Peninsula
Sir Richard Peninsula is a narrow peninsula consisting of sand which extends from Goolwa at the eastern end of the Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia to the Murray Mouth. It separates the Coorong which is part of the estuary of the River Murray from Encounter Bay. It is approximately 10 kilometres long and ranges from 500m to one kilometre in width. The peninsula together with the Younghusband Peninsula on the eastern side of the Murray Mouth, is the primary sand dune line defining this stretch of the Australian coastline. Sir Richard Peninsula was named after Richard Graves MacDonnell, the sixth governor of South Australia.
