Wallaroo

Wallaroo - Yorke Peninsula - South Australia

Wallaroo is a deep sea port and home to one of the most popular fishing jetty's in South Australia. Situated on the western coast of Yorke Peninsula, 160 kilometres from Adelaide city. The town is a blend of industrial activity and tourism vibe with a commercial port for the export of barley and safe beaches, great fishing and sightseeing. Wallaroo's architecture and stone cottages are a reminder of its proud origins when Cornish miners flocked to the town to uncover vast deposits of copper. Today, the town enjoys some of the best grain growing and grazing land in Australia.

For something a little different, leave the outside world behind and board the Aurora V, a passenger and vehicle ferry cruising between the Yorke Peninsula and Eyre Peninsula. Wallaroo Heritage and Nautical Museum is a National Trust Museum with interesting local and religious history, along with 'George' the squid, retrieved from a whale's belly 30 years ago. The Yorke Peninsula Railway is a historical train journey that runs every 2nd Sunday each month and the self guided Historical Walk features Hughes Chimney Stack containing a massive 300,000 bricks.
