Yorke Peninsula

Located on Adelaide’s doorstep, Yorke Peninsula offers breathtaking scenery, crowd-free beaches, picturesque townships, outdoor adventure and loads of barefoot fun.

Sometimes the best things in life are closer than you might imagine. This is certainly the case with Yorke Peninsula. Shaped like a leg and surrounded by the Spencer Gulf on one side and Gulf St Vincent on the other, the peninsula is just a short drive from Adelaide and yet offers a fantastic combination of Mediterranean climate, rich farmland, white sandy beaches, a spectacular national park and a fascinating cultural heritage.

If you love seafood, you can stroll through the shallows raking for Blue Swimmer crabs, dive for crayfish and scallops just offshore, or cast a line for King George whiting. If you prefer to leave the catching to the locals, there are seafood outlets and great eateries where you can feast on freshly caught seafood.

Yorke Peninsula boasts some of Australia’s best surfing beaches and has two underwater maritime heritage trails for divers. The Walk the Yorke trail is a continuous 500 kilometre leisure trail following the coastline of Yorke Peninsula, while the magnificent Innes National Park, with its stunning beaches, rugged coast and wildlife, is a much-loved destination for campers, surfers, anglers, hikers and nature lovers.

Originally the home of the Nharangga people, the peninsula was settled by Europeans in the 1850s. The 19th century saw an explosion of agriculture and a copper mining boom that attracted thousands of Cornish miners to work the mines.

A host of museums proudly maintain this cultural legacy and provide an amazing insight into the intriguing history of these times.

Whether you are looking for a lazy beach shack holiday, luxury apartment, holiday house, caravan park, farmstay or camping – you’ll find it all on Yorke Peninsula, South Australia’s most exciting and accessible holiday destination.
