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.
