Most travelling South Australians visit Port Wakefield more frequently than any other town. No matter how far you’ve travelled or how far you have to go, break the journey at Port Wakefield. Stop, fill up, grab a bite to eat and venture off the main highway to have a look around. PRICE 133 kilometres from Adelaide map reference F6 Like so many peninsula towns, Price has a character of its own. The area has substantial mangrove forests, samphire tidal flats and two creek systems – Shag Creek and Wills Creek – both of which are very important fish nursery areas. The area is rich in birdlife and is a popular spot for crabbing and fishing. Once a port, the town is the base for Cheetham Salt, where salt pans dominate the landscape. The walking trail to Port Clinton, which begins near the Wheatsheaf Hotel, takes you through samphire flats and mangroves.
