The town’s many services meet visitor’s demands and the place itself is favoured for a pub meal and a short beach break. Warooka and surroundings has 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 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. It’s difficult to get this much enjoyment out of any other sort of golf, hence the Classic’s profile is fast-growing. Whether you’re in Warooka, Wallaroo or Adelaide, pay your sand fees and play the game of your life. 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, the seaside town once served as a port for the district’s farms and pastoral runs. These days it serves as a quiet hideaway perched over the gulf, with a choice of the brighter lights of Stansbury and Edithburgh either side. On the cliff top are the remains of lime kilns that once were common on this part of the peninsula and can still be seen beside country roads. 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 boon for photographers and the red pink-to- white of some of the lakes catches the eye. Since the demise of the salt industry in the 1930s, the land has become mainly pastoral country. Yorketown’s old courthouse contains over 1000 photographs for your perusal and the historical society has mapped out a town walk. Watching seagulls, Wallaroo Warooka’s many services meet visitor’s demands and the place itself is favoured for a pub meal and a short beach break.
