Minlaton

Minlaton - Yorke Peninsula - South Australia

The small rural hub of Minlaton is located 198 kilometres west of Adelaide and 96 kilometres south of Kadina and is the major service area for surrounding rural districts and visitors travelling to the southern reaches of Yorke Peninsula. The pretty township boasts wide streets and golden farmland, advocating itself as "The Barley Capital of the World". Since its settlement in the 1870's farmers have taken advantage of excellent growing conditions for wheat, barley and sheep grazing. Today, as a result, Minlaton prospers as a major agricultural centre offering many facilities for locals and visitors.

Minlaton is the only area in the South of the Yorke Peninsula where Red Gums grow naturally and was initially named 'Gum Flat' be that as it may, the towns name was changed to Minlaton which originates form the word 'Minlacowie' meaning 'sweet water'.

Visit Butler Memorial where the 'Red Devil' fighter plane stands proudly as possibly the only one of its kind left in the world. Pilot Captain Harry Butler was born here in Minlaton. Learn more about the area and admire the beautiful red river gums on the Minlaton Walking Trail, celebrate local art at the Gum Flat Gallery and search for souvenirs at The Creamery and Harvest Corner Yorke Peninsula Visitor Information Centre.
