County of Le Hunte is a cadastral unit located in the Australian state of South Australia that covers land located in the centre of Eyre Peninsula. It was proclaimed in 1908 and named after George Le Hunte who was the Governor of South Australia from July 1903 to February 1909.

Description

The County of Le Hunte covers a part of South Australia associated with the western side of the centre of Eyre Peninsula located south of the Gawler Ranges.[2] It is bounded to the west by the County of Robinson, to the south by the counties of Musgrave and Jervois, and to the east by the County of Buxton and to the north by County of Bosanquet.[2][6][5][1]

The county is served by the following major roads - Eyre Highway which passes through the county from east to west and the Tod Highway which passes from the south and which meets the Eyre Highway at Kyancutta.[2][7]

Settlements include Minnipa, Yaninee, Pygery, Wudinna and Kyancutta which are located (from west to east) along the Eyre Highway and Warramboo being located on the Tod Highway.[2]

The Port Lincoln to Wudinna line of the Eyre Peninsula Railway passes through the county from the south to the west following the alignment of the Tod Highway and then the alignment of the Eyre Highway west of Kyancutta.[2]

Land use within the county includes primary industrial activity such as “cereal and legume cropping, pastures, and grazing of sheep and cattle,” and mining. The following protected areas are located in the county - Cocata Conservation Park in the south-east corner while the Pinkawillinie Conservation Park occupies most of the county's northern-eastern corner.[2][8][9][10]

Its extent includes parts of the local government areas of the Wudinna District Council on its western side and the District Council of Kimba on its eastern side with parts of the state's Pastoral Unincorporated Area located on its northern and eastern sides.[2]

History

The County of Le Hunte was proclaimed on 4 November 1908.[1]

The naming of the county after Governor Le Hunte who was the Governor of South Australia from July 1903 to February 1909, by the South Australian government follows “a precedent which was established in 1842’ when a county was named after Governor Gawler.[11][2]

The following hundreds have been proclaimed within the county - Kappakoola, Mamblin, Minnipa, Palabie, Pygery, Wannamana, Warramboo, Wudinna and Yaninee in 1913, Pinbong in 1922, Pordia in 1925, Cootra and Koongawa in 1926, Hill in 1927, Cocata in 1928, and Corrobinnie and Peella in 1957.[12]
