Yorke Peninsula

Fishing, boating, surfing, swimming, camping, bushwalking and wildlife: there’s so much to see and do along kilometres of pristine coast on the Yorke Peninsula. Just over an hour’s drive from Adelaide and home to 700 kilometres of pristine coast, the Yorke Peninsula is among South Australia’s most accessible seaside escapes. Spend your days lounging on sandy white shores and cooling off at local breweries before returning to your bolthole just minutes from the breathtaking Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park, or wind your way through the region on the Coastal Way road trip. 

All that time beside the ocean will work up an appetite. Bond Store – in the heart of Wallaroo – boasts a modern industrial fit-out and a menu shaped by local produce, much of it cooked on a custom charcoal grill. You’ll find 12 beers on tap and a rotating selection from other South Australian craft breweries. Enjoy beachside fish and chips at the family-run Port Vincent Kiosk, or settle in for country hospitality at the Coopers Alehouse Restaurant.  

Coffee Barn and Gelateria in Moonta offers fresh gelato and sorbet alongside treasures from yesteryear, while fellow Moonta destination Taste the Yorke features local fare including sourdough, honey, oils, salt and dukkah alongside fresh fruit and vegetables. Make your way to Yorketown to take your pick from 36 (yes, 36!) gourmet pies on offer at Marie’s Delights
