Kingston is in lobster country, as you quickly realise on entering the town when you are met by a giant welcoming lobster.
It was settled in the early 1850s and named after Sir George Strickland Kingston, an early deputy surveyor general and father of premier Charles Cameron Kingston.
The coast around Kingston has plenty of scenic drives, especially on the way to Cape Jaffa and also towards the Granites, a series of rock outcrops north of the town and also at Jip Jip Conservation Park, fifty kilometres north.
There are plenty of safe swimming spots around Kingston, including Wyomi and Pinks beaches and Lacepede Bay.
