• Walk the Yorke

    Yorke Peninsula coast .

    With more than 500 kilometres of continuous shared walking & cycling leisure trail, you can explore Yorke Peninsula's coastline from Port Wakefield to Moonta Bay.

    With coastal trails & town walks, Walk the Yorke showcases Yorke Peninsula’s spectacular coastline, diverse coastal communities and environments.

    We suggest you check this one out!  

    Starting from the Edithburgh Jetty, you can see Troubridge Island towards the south-east.  The Troubridge Island lighthouse is now retired, but was built in 1856 and was the only pre-fabricated cast iron lighthouse in South Australia.

    Follow the walk/bike Mosaic Trail from Edithburgh to Sultana Point, a distance of 3.4km (51 minutes).  This arty trail was the brainchild of a local artist Trudie Howith, and with assistance from other local artists & community members, rocks along the trail were mosaicked in a nautical theme.

    For those wanting to push on, the next section of the walk takes you to Port Moorowie, which is 27.3km from Sultana Point along the rugged Yorke Peninsula coastline.

  • Fishing and boating

    Edithburgh SA, Australia .

    Head to the nearby Edithburgh jetty and try for King George whiting, squid and the occasional salmon and snapper.

    If you have a boat, and the weather is favourable, make the most of the all-tide multi-lane ramp.

    Most local species can be caught at Troubridge Shoals, Tapley Shoal and Marion Reef, but currents can be strong and fishing is best done at the turn of the tide.

    Garfish can be dabbed for at night in calm summer weather, preferably when there is no moon.

    Rocks between Edithburgh and Troubridge Point produce salmon, snook, snapper and squid.

    Not far from Edithburgh, the jetty at Port Giles is the spot for tommy ruffs, chow squid and mackerel. You may even snag a snapper. This jetty is closed when grain is being loaded.

    Then bring your catch back to your accommodation and make use of the fish preparation station.

  • Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park

    Stenhouse Bay, Inneston SA, Australia .

    Perfect for a day trip, why not plan to explore spectacular Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park where you can see emus, kangaroos and tammar wallabies in the wild.

    Around an hour's drive, you can immerse yourself in nature and stroll along amazing beaches.

    You may even see some dolphins, seals or whales swimming by! Visit a real ghost town, explore one of the many walking trails, get up close to a lighthouse or see the Ethel Shipwreck.

    Visit the ghost town of Inneston, an old township within the Park that was once home to 200 people. In its heyday it was completely self-sufficient, with its own school, post office, bakery, general store, and tennis court.

    On the way back, why not duck into the Marion Bay Tavern for a refreshment?

  • Watsacowie Brewery

    9 Depot Road, Minlaton SA, Australia .

    Located just a stone's throw from some of the most pristine beaches on the Southern Yorke Peninsula, Watsacowie is a destination for lovers of craft beer and good times.

    Watsacowie is a popular local watering hole featuring a large range of beers and seltzers, and often featuring a food van and live music.

    Remember to organise a designated driver!


  • Salt Lake Trail

    Yorketown SA, Australia .

    Surrounded by around 200 salt lakes, Yorketown's history is initially based on harvesting those lakes for commercial salt production.

    Today, the crystal formations are a boon for photographers and the reddish pinks to shades of white catch the eye of locals and visitors.

    Salt lakes can be a vibrant pink colour due to high salinity levels, or they can change from white to pink to blue depending on the salt content and season. 

    At various times of the day and year, the lakes along the trail can span the colour spectrum from purple to blue, orange to white, or silver to pink.

    Follow the Yorke Peninsula Salt Lake Trail across four selected routes, and travel past some of the best vantage points for that perfect photo opportunity.

  • Water tower murals

    Yorke Peninsula, SA, Australia .

    Yorke Peninsula Council, in partnership with Yorke Peninsula Tourism and the Coobowie, Edithburgh, Stansbury and Yorketown Progress Associations, were successful in gaining funding through the Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery Grant program, which aims to assist the economic recovery of regions affected by the 2019 bushfires through art projects. This funding has supported the Southern Yorke Peninsula Water Tower Mural Trail project, which has created stunning murals on the SA Water-owned water towers in Edithburgh, Stansbury and Yorketown and the water tank and shed in Coobowie.

  • Troubridge Lighthouse

    Edithburgh SA, Australia .

    Troubridge Island Lighthouse is a decommissioned lighthouse about 8 kilometres southeast by east of Edithburgh. Well worth checking out on a coastal drive.
