Website:         Yorke Peninsula, South Australia – a family playground & coastal getaway

Stunning beaches and friendly coastal towns beckon, while inland are historic mining villages and spectacular national parks.

Blessed by nature and embraced by sea, Yorke Peninsula is a world apart. Here are magnificent beaches and jagged shorelines, friendly locals and rich farmland.

If you love seafood, you can stroll the shallows raking for blue swimmer crabs, dive for crayfish and scallops, or drop a line for King George Whiting.

It also boasts some of Australia’s greatest surfing beaches and is strewn with shipwrecks for divers. Back on dry land you can explore mining towns and national parks.

Whatever you do, you’ll be made very welcome on Yorke Peninsula!

Why Visit:

The Yorke peninsula, as you may have gathered if a region, not a single destination, and it was the first port of call when we started our trips around Australia.  This is where urban and rural criss cross.  It’s a very busy intersection, so it is best to head to one of the coastal areas to really enjoy the atmosphere.

Everything is really laid back, it seems like there’s plenty of time, and though there are no real sights, it doesn’t really matter.  You can fish, you can walk, you can just sit and watch the seagulls drift on the breeze above turbulent seas.

The Yorke Peninsula is a sense of serenity, and well worth visiting.

  1. Wow, this sounds like a wonderful place to visit! I can almost feel the sea breeze and smell the fresh seafood. I love the idea of raking for crabs and diving for scallops. I have always wanted to visit Australia, and this region sounds like a perfect destination for me. I love the idea of exploring the beaches, the national parks, and the historic towns. Thank you for sharing your insights and photos of Yorke Peninsula. You have inspired me to add it to my bucket list! I hope to go there someday to – visit Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park, enjoy scuba diving at the Zanoni Wreck, walk through the historic Wallaroo, stop by the Wallaroo Heritage and Nautical Museum, admire the Edithburgh Water Tower Mural, peruse the Stansbury Seaside Markets, and taste some of the finest Yorke Peninsula wines at Barley Stacks Wines. 😊
