Brinkley is a locality and former township in South Australia west of the Murray River and approximately 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) south west by road from the centre of Murray Bridge. Its boundaries for the long-established locality were formalised in March 2000. It is named for the cadastral division in which it lies, the Hundred of Brinkley, which itself was named after Captain M. Brinkley who in 1860 was the clerk of the state's Executive Council.
