Cleve Accommodation, Hotels, Tours & Information

Cleve

Primarily a service town for outlying farms, Cleve has preserved its rich farming heritage with impressive wall murals and permanent outdoor displays of everything from a dray to the council's first grader. Cleve has all major shops, varied accommodation and great country sports facilities including a 18 hole golf course running along a creek bed. Visit the National Trust listed Old Council Chambers, housing a museum of early day heritage attractions. Stand atop the look-out adjacent to the town, offering fine panoramic views. An attractive scenic drive follows the line of the Cleve-Cowell Hills, offering you fine views of the plains and Spencer Gulf. It is not uncommon to spot emus, kangaroos or mallee fowls during this drive. The township was surveyed in 1878 and Cleve was proclaimed on 6 March 1879, named by Governor Jervois after his cousin's county seat in Devon, England. The new town was only 27 kilometres from the shipping port of Arno Bay. Cleve is a unique inland Eyre Peninsula town in that it is not serviced by either rail or Ausbulk silo.
