HARDWICKE BAY 219 kilometres from Adelaide map reference C10 Beautiful, pristine sandy beaches that are perfect for young children make Hardwicke Bay irresistible to holidaying families, retirees and couples alike. Its sheltered bay is the perfect spot to take a dip, or for the keen angler you can also cast a line out here and try your hand at catching the night's dinner. The bay is also great for yachting and boating, two popular past-times on Yorke Peninsula, especially in the summer holiday season. This peaceful town is perfect for anyone wanting to relax or looking for a great escape from city life. KADINA 150 kilometres from Adelaide map reference E5 Kadina is the largest town on Yorke Peninsula – large enough to have suburbs called Jerusalem, Jericho, Matta Flat, Newtown, Kadina East and Wallaroo Mines. In its heyday in the late 19th century, Kadina had a population of 20,000. In 1859, copper was discovered near Kadina. This brought many skilled Cornish miners and their families to the region, who left a mark that can still be seen in this area today. Over the years, Kadina has been the unofficial capital of Australia’s Little Cornwall, the Copper Triangle and now the Copper Coast; each name a true testament to the region’s mining past and cultural origins, celebrated biennially at Kernewek Lowender, the Copper Coast Cornish Festival in Moonta, Wallaroo and Kadina. The next festival is 15–21 May 2017. Eventually mining ceased and farming took over as the mainstay industry. To learn more about this part of Kadina’s diverse history, visit The Farm Shed Museum and Tourism Centre. Kadina's Royal Exchange Hotel was simply the Exchange Hotel until the Duke of Clarence stayed here in 1880. The Duke is considered a suspect in perhaps the most infamous murder case of all times. So did Jack the Ripper once spend the night in Kadina, surrounded by slumbering Cousin Jacks? Kadina offers some good shopping and art enthusiasts will enjoy the Ascot Gallery and Picturesque Framing and Gallery. LOWER LIGHT 51 kilometres from Adelaide map reference G8 Lower Light is a service stop on National Highway One and is located near River Light, which runs through the Adelaide Plains. Fill up your car and stretch your legs at the service station, or chat with the locals at the Lower Light Hotel. Enjoy a meal in the hotel bistro or beer garden. If you’re looking for some excitement, there’s always skydiving to get your heart racing. On the way to Yorke Peninsula, the skydiving club is on your right, just past Lower Light. Take a scenic flight followed by a tandem skydive with an experienced instructor.
