Edithburgh  South Australia

Perched on a cliff top on the southern tip of Yorke Peninsula, Edithburgh is a popular tourist and fishing town offering the visitor a diverse range of activities.

A number of early settlement buildings survive to give an inkling of life in a coastal port in the late 19th century. The large jetty, too, is a reminder of the town’s past importance as a port which once exported up to 24,000 tonnes of salt a year.

These days modern craft and equipment make the seas off Edithburgh a safe and exciting environment for divers and underwater photographers, but the ocean hasn’t always been as friendly.

A stroll through the local cemetery testifies to the trials and hardships that beset early pioneers and the mariners who settled and worked this part of the Yorke coast. Much of the history of this stretch of coast is locked into the Maritime Museum's comprehensive collection.

Fine vews of the coastline are on show from Troubridge Hill and Lighthouse to the south of the town, and from another lighthouse on Toubridge Island, which has been declared a conservation park protecting colonies of penguins, cormorants and other sea birds.
