Port Elliot was selected by Governor Sir Henry Edward Fox Young in 1850 as the site for the ocean port of the Murray River trade. He named the place after his friend, Sir Charles Elliot. The township was proclaimed in 1854, the same year in which the first railway line in South Australia was opened between Goolwa and Port Elliot. The Governor's choice was unfortunate because the bay was not well enough protected. After several shipwrecks, the anchorage was transferred to the lee of Granite ISLAND at Victor Harbor in 1864.
