Lucindale lies half way between Naracoorte and the coastal town of Kingston South East in the Limestone Coast region of South Australia and the town's welcoming community invites visitors in and its location makes it an ideal base from which to explore the region.

Lucindale is centrally located in the Limestone Coast region, South East of South Australia. A small rural town with a very dynamic community spirit, Lucindale is well known for its South East Field Days, which are usually held on the third Friday and Saturday of March at Yakka Park. The community, along with the Lions Club, rally their resources, talents and manpower together to host this event, which brings more than 26,000 visitors to the township.

The town boasts expansive green lawns, ideal for a picnic, as well as rose beds, fabulous gum trees, flora and fauna, all set in peaceful surroundings. There is also a variety of sporting and social clubs and an active local community, with a strong can-do attitude, making this little town a vibrant and attractive place to live.

Centenary Park in Lucindale is a wide open green space that is great for a quick stop for travellers to relax and enjoy this local gathering place. Children can burn off some energy at the skate park, the fenced and shaded playground and the ½ basketball court. There are public conveniences, a gazebo with shaded seating and tables for a picnic or you can cook up a feast on the barbeque. Dogs can be exercised on their leash. Explore the nearby War Memorial.
