Yorketown

Yorketown - Yorke Peninsula - South Australia

Yorketown sits at the junction of five roads to other towns and is named after the peninsula itself. This small rural town is located 227 kilometres from Adelaide and is situated in between Spencer Gulf and Gulf St Vincent. Yorketown is a significant service centre on the peninsula with 200 salt lakes scattered throughout the district, consequently the town flourished reaching 57,000 tonnes of farmed salt in one year alone. During the 1950's the salt refinery closed in Edithburgh, halting production.

Visitors can check out pictures of the towns pioneering days at the Courthouse Photographic Display. Nearby Innes National Park features golden beaches and bays with wild surf breaks at Chinamans Reef, Pondalowie Bay and West Cape. The winter months bring something special with southern right whales visible from Stenhouse Bay and Cape Spencer on their migration. Meander along coastal and inland walking trails and fishing from the jetty or the beach.
