Right in the heart of Eyre Peninsula, Lock is a small rural hub servicing a flourishing farming community.
The town was named after Corporal Albert Lock, a local landholder killed in action in Belgium in 1917 - and the local museum commemorates the sacrifices of war and the district's rich farming heritage.
Lock has an abundance of sports facilities and all the friendly accommodation and shopping you'd expect from a small country town.
