Discover Your Local Yorke Peninsula Area
Sitting to the south of the state, the Yorke Peninsula region is renowned for its vast coastal landscape. Pick a spot along the coast for some whale watching, catch the ferry across to Kangaroo Island and guide your tastebuds on a journey of fresh and local seafood from the waters surrounding the region. The area is just over an hour’s drive from Adelaide, making it accessible for a weekend getaway.
Keep your holiday stay coastal in Marion Bay or immerse yourself in the mining history of the region in Wallaroo Mines, which will appeal to visitors of all ages. The Moonta Mines Model School Museum pays homage to the region’s mining history. Set in the old school building which dates back to the late 1800s, the museum is home to a number of valuable local collections.
There are plenty of stunning natural attractions to keep you busy on your visit to the region. Grab a fishing line and cast it out into some of the cleanest waters in the whole of Australia. Yorke Peninsula is lined with kilometres of pristine beaches, white sand and clean water, which makes it perfect for a swim in the ocean or to spend the afternoon fishing for your dinner. Don’t be fooled by the vast water surrounding the region. Yorke Peninsula is also home to national parks and native bushland so don’t forget to explore the depths of Innes National Park.
