Localities [7]

Port Julia (also known as Port Curramulka) is a locality in the Australian state of South Australia located on the east coast of Yorke Peninsula about 72 kilometres (45 miles) northwest of the Adelaide city centre.[1][3][7]

Its boundaries were created in May 1999 for the “long established name” and includes both the former Port Julia Shack Site and the former Dipper Shack Site.[1] The name is reported as being derived from a Mrs Julia Wurm (née Crush) whose husband and sons had acquired land in what is now the locality.[8][1]

As of 2015, the majority land use within the locality is agriculture. A secondary land use is conservation which concerns the strip of land immediately adjoining the coastline. A third use of land along the coastline is for residential use at the sites of the former shack sites.[9]

The locality contains the Port Julia Jetty and Cargo Shed, which is listed on the South Australian Heritage Register.[10]

Port Julia is located within the federal division of Grey, the state electoral district of Narungga and the local government area of the Yorke Peninsula Council.[5][4][1]
