With sparkling clear waters, white sandy beaches, a fascinating history and some of the best fishing in South Australia, Yorke Peninsula is arguably South Australia’s most relaxing holiday destination.
Beginning just 90 minutes drive from Adelaide, ‘Yorke’s’ boasts over 30 caravan parks as well as camping grounds and an array of accommodation to suit everyone!
If relaxing with a fishing line is your idea of heaven, there are plenty of historic jetties to explore and provide some of the best catches in the State.
History buffs can learn about the region’s rich mining and farming heritage through its many museums and historic walks. Highlights include The Farm Shed Museum and Tourism Centre, which gives an insight into the lives of the region’s pioneering families, the Bublacowie Military Museum, the Moonta Mines Museum, and the Wallaroo Heritage and Nautical Museum.
Yorke Peninsula is also a haven for nature lovers. Those looking to get away from it all can indulge in bush walking, swimming, snorkeling surfing, bird watching, diving, and sometimes even whale watching at the region’s vast sandy beaches and national parks.
Innes National Park is one of the most famous wildlife havens in the State, with 9200 ha of untouched flora and fauna and some spectacular rugged cliffs. Other great Yorke Peninsula parks include the Leven Beach Conservation Park and Clinton Conservation Park.
Walkers will find a wide range of bush walk, cliff top and shoreline rambles as well as unique geology trails across the region – with a wonderful array of birdlife, history and heritage.
