Lincoln is a national park in South Australia (Australia), 249 km west of Adelaide. It occupies the Jussieu Peninsula and a number of nearby islands.

The Barngala and Nauo people lived in the region before the arrival of European settlers. Cape Donington at the northern tip of the park recorded its first grain crop in 1875. Other activities in that area included woodcutting, grazing and guano mining. Donington Cottage remains and can be rented for a nightly fee. Additional structures in the park include a lighthouse, ranger's quarters and a water pipeline.
