St.Vincent's Gulf (foreground) and Yorke Peninsula

St Vincent's Gulf (35°1′S 138°4′E / 35.017°S 138.067°E / -35.017; 138.067) is a large inlet of water on the southern coast of Australia, in the state of South Australia. It is bordered by two peninsulas: the Yorke Peninsula to the west, and the Fleurieu Peninsula to the south east. Kangaroo Island is across the opening to the Southern Ocean on the southwest. The capital of South Australia, Adelaide, is situated on its east coast. Other notable towns located on the Gulf include Ardrossan, Port Wakefield, Edithburgh and Port Vincent.

The gulf is also abundant with various organisms from the classes crustacea and polychaeta, as well as various species of sea squirts and sea urchins. The benthos is a soft sediment shelf, with species of zosteraceae around the mouth of the Port River.
