Warooka  South Australia

Warooka, a small rural town on the ‘foot’ of Yorke Peninsula 228km from Adelaide, was known to the local Aboriginal tribes as Wiruka, or muddy water hole.

And maybe it was the water hole which attracted the first white settler, James Coutts, in 1847 when he took up a run which extended over 31,000ha from Hardwick Bay to Sturt Bay to the south.

The story of early settlement and development of the town can be traced in the Warooka District Museum. Today, thanks to the use of fertilisers to overcome a manganese deficiency in the soil, Warooka is at the centre of a barley-producing area.

The swimming, fishing, diving and sailboarding haven of Edithburg on the southern tip of the Peninsula, is within comfortable driving distance of Warooka. To the west of Warooka stands a promontory which explorer Matthew Flinders found 'remarkable', and then inexplicably named Corny Point. It presents panoramic views of the coastline. Complete with a lighthouse, Corny Point is a pleasant holiday resort with fine, safe beaches.
