Yorke Peninsula Visitor Guide : 2015 2016 Yorke Peninsula Visitor Guide
Getting here & AROUND Just 60 minutes by car from Adelaide, Yorke Peninsula offers a wide choice of selfguided tours to help you explore the region. GETTING TO YORKE PENINSULA By road For a great South Australian driving holiday bring your own vehicle or simply hire one. Highway One, out of Adelaide, takes you north of Port Wakefield where you begin the journey down the peninsula. The driving is easy, with good road conditions, and the best part is there are no traffic lights. Towns and attractions are within close proximity to one another, making for a leisurely drive. Travel at your own pace and stop when you want to take in the sights. Fuel is available in most towns, as are snacks and travel essentials. Be mindful that most petrol stations across the region close early, around 5pm or 6pm. By coach Yorke Peninsula Coaches operate regular services from Adelaide Central Bus Station on Franklin Street, Adelaide, to various towns throughout Yorke Peninsula. There is a separate inter-town bus route connecting towns in the southern part of the region but in general there are limited bus services between major towns on the peninsula. So plan your transport carefully. 4 By taxi Yorke Peninsula is too far from Adelaide to make taxi transport a practical option. However, the Copper Triangle Taxi Service in Kadina services Yorke Peninsula seven days a week.
