Edithburgh

Edithburgh - Yorke Peninsula - South Australia

Edithburgh is a popular coastal holiday destination 226 kilometres from Adelaide in the south-eastern corner of the Yorke Peninsula. This quiet fishing village enjoyed days as the third busiest port in South Australia and was once a significant supplier of salt to South Australia with almost 200 lakes, most of which are salt. Encounter the magic of youth and the joy of life on a family holiday where the kids can safely swim in the crisp sparkle of the sea. There are fantastic swimming beaches, a tidal pool, fishing, diving, snorkelling, sail boarding and walking trails.

The Edithburgh area is renowned for its disastrous maritime events of days gone by with over 26 vessels facing their demise in these waters, in spite of the lighthouse that was built in 1856. Having said that, facts such as these usually cause a fever of enthusiasm amongst the diving community who flock to the area for some amazing underworld encounters.

Stroll along the jetty to admire views of Troubridge Island and Gulf St Vincent. Visit the Wattle Point Wind Farm and check out the visually amazing 68 metre high structures. Visitors are able to stand right underneath and learn more about how they operate.
