A small rural town with a very dynamic community spirit, Lucindale is well known for its Field Days, which are usually held the third Friday & Saturday each March at Yakka Park. The community, along with the local Lions Club, rally their resources, talents and manpower together to host this event which brings more than 20,000 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 surrounds.
Within the district there are many lakes, natural parklands and conservation parks to cater for naturalists of all kinds, bird enthusiasts, bike riders, walkers, photographers, botanists, or four-wheel drive enthusiasts.
For the sporting enthusiast, there is golf on the magnificent 18-hole watered course at the country club, or perhaps a hit of tennis on one of the lush green lawn courts. Lawn bowls is available within the township and there is a challenging karting track on the outskirts of town.
Lucindale’s location is only a short drive for fun and activities at nearby lakes and seaside towns. A half hour drive will take you to see the Naracoorte Caves – inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1994 due to the extensive fossil deposits found within the caves. For historians, the Lucindale Historical Society has developed an outstanding museum at the old railway station that records the areas diverse and dynamic history.
