The main section of Bensville is centred on Kallaroo Road, and consists of a small park, video store, cafe, general store and hairdressers. A small combination of shops have recently been added in 2005. There is a small wharf located at the end of Kallaroo Road, which is a popular local fishing spot.
Bensville is named after a pioneer of the area, Benjamin Davis. His father had been a school teacher at Kincumber and Davistown is named after his family. Benjamin started a shipbuilding business around 1850 and also owned 1,000 acres (4.05 km2) of land there. When a post office was opened, it was named Bensville, in honour of the pioneer.
