Cape Burr is a headland located on the east coast of the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia about 0.5 kilometres (0.31 mi) east of the town of Port Neill. It is the southern extremity of Dutton Bay. It is one of the geographical features named during a visit in 1840 to the lower Eyre Peninsula by George Gawler, the Governor of South Australia after Thomas Burr, the Deputy Surveyor General of South Australia, who was one of those accompanying Gawler.[1][2][3][4][5][6]
