At the 2011 census, Kingston SE had a population of 1,425.HistoryThe town was named after Sir George Strickland Kingston, a South Australian politician, surveyor and architect. Kingston Post Office opened on 9 February 1869. The extension on its name is to distinguish Kingston in the South East (of South Australia) from another 'Kingston' in the state which is now officially named "Kingston-On-Murray". The town was connected to the outside world by a railway in 1876. The rails were converted to broad gauge in 1959. The railway closed in the 1970s.TodayThe main industries are fishing, winemaking, sheep and cattle farming and recreation, the district having a large influx of tourists during holiday periods throughout the year.The northern entrance to the town is dominated by the Big Lobster, fondly named "Larry" by people in Kingston.Many great pubs, hotels, and shops can be found, and Kingston also hosts one of the best fish and chip shops in Australia.
