South Bruce Peninsula is a town in Ontario, located at the base of the Bruce Peninsula, in Bruce County between Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. It was formed on January 1, 1999, when the Town of Wiarton, the Village of Hepworth and the townships of Albemarle Township and Amabel Township, Ontario were amalgamated.


The town comprises the communities of Adamsville, Colpoy's Bay, Hepworth, Hope Bay, Howdenvale, Mar, McIvor, Oliphant, Park Head, Purple Valley, Red Bay, Sauble Beach, Sauble Beach North, Sauble Beach South, Sauble Falls, Skipness, Tolmie and Wiarton. The administrative centre of the region is found in Wiarton.


(Incorporate into a space page) Wiarton wasn't settled until after 1866. James Lennox, the first settler, arrived in 1866. In 1868, B. B. Miller built a hotel and opened the post-office. Wiarton became an incorporated village in 1880 and a town in 1894.
