Yorke Peninsula

The Yorke Peninsula, or ‘Yorkes’ as the locals call it, is right on Adelaide’s doorstep with Port Wakefield, an easy 60-minute drive north of Adelaide. Blessed by nature and embraced by sea, the Yorke Peninsula is only two and a half hours’ drive from top to bottom and around 30 minutes from coast to coast, making it easy to get around. Yorkes is home to magnificent beaches and jagged shorelines, friendly locals and rich farmland. With its distinctive ‘boot’ shape, the Yorke Peninsula boasts more than 700 kilometres of coastline, ensuring you’re never far from the perfect beach spot. Surrounded by coastline, the Yorke Peninsula is one of the few places in Australia where you can see the sun rise and set over the sea. Two underwater dive trails provide excellent diving opportunities for beginners and the experienced. The Warding Island Maritime Heritage Trail off Port Victoria has eight shipwrecks while the Investigator Strait Shipwreck trail highlights 10 of the shipwrecks between Yorke Peninsula and Kangaroo Island.

More about the Yorke Peninsula

Peter Fisher

Perfect to explore by foot or bike, Walk the Yorke, maps out more than 500 kilometres of continuous walking and cycling trails stretching from Port Wakefield to Moonta Bay. Innes National Park is one of the most famous wildlife havens in South Australia, with 9,200 hectares of untouched flora and fauna and some spectacular rugged cliffs. Visitors can see water holes carved from limestone by the traditional owners and on clear days you can see Kangaroo Island shimmering in the distance. If you love seafood, you can rake the shallows for blue swimmer crabs, dive for crayfish and scallops or drop a line for King George whiting. If you prefer to leave the catching to the locals, there are many eateries where you can dine on scrumptious seafood. With dozens of country pubs and taverns, a great range of restaurants and two cellar doors, the region contains many hidden dining gems featuring local produce.
