Parks in the Yorke Peninsula area
You’d expect a peninsula to afford plenty of impressive coastline, and this region delivers strongly on the expectation.
Sparkling beaches dominate the Yorke Peninsula, from secluded stretches of sand to family-friendly ones at the likes of Marion Bay and Port Hughes. These beaches suit all manner of activities from catching waves at famous Pondalowie Bay to diving and snorkelling for marine life at Edithburgh Jetty or the Zanoni shipwreck off the coast of Ardrossan.
On dry land, explore the Yorke Peninsula’s fascinating copper-mining past through various attractions: Moonta and Kadina are key towns. Absorbing aviation history is a surprising addition to the region, or delve even further back in time by unearthing local Aboriginal heritage.
Getting to know Innes National Park is a must. Its rugged cliffs, crowd-free beaches, and wandering wildlife are sure to captivate, best enjoyed on a series of walking trails. In fact, path pounding is a specialty throughout the Yorke Peninsula, whether taking the Port Broughton Historic Walking Trail or the Port Victoria Geology Trail.
Or immerse yourself in the region’s delights without even lifting a foot by jumping on board the Moonta Mines Tourist Railway.
