With sheep farming and cereal grain growing as its major industries, Cummins is a small rural town with a population of just under 1,000 people. As a key service hub for the surrounding areas, there are plenty of amenities including a supermarket, hotel, café, school, library, and recreational venues. There are also many sporting and community groups. Cummins has a vibrant and engaging community; the town moves at a gentler pace, and you will always get a friendly “hello” down the main street. The town is well-located just a short drive to various beaches on the Eyre Peninsula, and is also just a 45-minute drive from Port Lincoln, which is a major regional centre.
