Memory Cove is a bay located on the East coast of Jussieu Peninsula on Eyre Peninsula in South Australia approximately 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) South-East of Port Lincoln.

It is one of the natural features named by Matthew Flinders in memory of the eight crew who were lost on a cutter that capsized sometime after being launched from HM Sloop Investigator to search for water on 21 February 1802.[2][3]

Since 2004, the coastline enclosing the bay has been part of the Memory Cove Wilderness Protection Area.[3]
