Yorke Peninsula Visitor Guide : 2015 2016 Yorke Peninsula Visitor Guide
43 wallaroo, warooka, wool bay and yorketown | yorkepeninsula.com.au Warooka 228 kilometres from Adelaide map reference C10 Warooka looks south to the ‘bottom end’ and north along the holiday coast from Hardwicke Bay around to Point Turton. Warooka and surroundings have an active Progress Association that each year puts on one of the peninsula’s stand-out community events. The Flaherty’s Beach Sandbar Golf Classic held each year in February is exactly that – a golf tournament where water hazards are the norm and you’re always in a bunker. It’s played on a beautiful stretch of beach in late summer when the tide is at its lowest. Wool Bay 224 kilometres from Adelaide map reference E10 Named Wool Bay because it had a cutting in the cliff wide enough to roll a bale of wool down to the beach, this seaside town once served as a port for the district’s farms and pastoral runs. These days Wool Bay is a quiet hideaway, perched over the gulf, with Stansbury and Edithburgh on either side. Enjoy the relaxed and peaceful atmosphere of this small town. On the cliff top you can see the remains of the lime kilns that once were common on this part of the peninsula. Come and enjoy peace and tranquillity. Absolute picturesque beach frontage.

Yorketown 228 kilometres from Adelaide map reference D10 Yorketown is at the junction of five roads leading to towns all the same distance away. Surrounded by about 200 salt lakes, the town has a history based initially on harvesting those lakes. Today, the salt crystal formations are a magnet for photographers. Make sure your camera is charged before visiting. Yorketown’s old courthouse contains over 1000 photographs and the historical society has mapped out a town walk for visitors. The town is a good spot to stock up on supplies, with a supermarket, fuel and banking services available.
