Out and about in Yorke Peninsula

The Yorke Peninsula is a beach paradise located a couple of hours from Adelaide. With its sparkling blue bays, white sand beaches and absence of crowds, it’s a must-stop for anyone driving around Australia, or looking for a relaxing mini break from the city. 

The Yorke Peninsula’s 700km coastline strings together some of Australia’s most breathtaking beaches. From sheltered bays to rolling waves, the Yorke is the perfect place to swim, snorkel, surf, fish, kayak, take the boat out or immerse in the underwater world with a scuba tank. Cap Clairout, Willyama Beach and Berry Bay have been named some of the best beaches in the region, but there’s also an abundance of unknown beaches that make the Yorke Coast perfect for exploring.

Some of the Yorke’s best surfing can be found in Innes National Park, along with bush camping, wildlife encounters and bushwalks. The Inneston Historic Walk, Ethel shipwreck and a stroll to one of the lighthouses are three of the highlights for history buffs within the park.

The York Peninsula is teeming with wildlife, birds and marine animals including emus, kangaroos, wallabies, falcons, eagles, cormorants, terns, pods of dolphins and in winter, majestic migrating whales. You can appreciate the local critters and the amazing environments they call home along the Yorke’s many coastal tracks, bushwalks and lookouts over the ocean, as well as around the campsite. Explore the Yorke on two feet or two wheels – there’s a whopping 500km of walking and bike trails across the peninsula.

From Aboriginal Cultural Tours and surf school, to fishing charters and oyster farm experiences, the Yorke’s natural environment plays host to so many unique activities, you’ll want to stay for a week. There’s tonnes of campsites and caravan parks along the Yorke coast, with everything from no-frills bush camping to amazing waterfront cabins and clifftop pods. Check out options at the beautiful Marion Bay, as well as Wallaroo, Edithburgh, Kadina, Yorketown and Port Rickaby, just to name a few.
