    •   Show me: a map of Yorketown

Yorketown, 230km west of Adelaide, is at the centre of one of the earliest parts of the Yorke Peninsula to be settled. The Historical Society’s heritage walk takes in a number of significant buildings including the Old Courthouse which houses a collection of more than 1000 photographs depicting the pioneering days.

Although it is the commercial heart of a cereal-growing area, Yorketown is surrounded by a an extensive series of inland salt lakes some of which are a distinctive pink, and it was once suggested that the town change its name to Salt Lake City. Mercifully, the suggestion fell on deaf ears.

Harvesting salt was a major industry from the late 1890s until the 1930s and, at its peak during World War I, produced 57,000 tonnes a year.

Yorketown is within comfortable driving distance of the rugged coastal scenery around Innes National Park at the tip of the peninsula while Daly Head surfing beach is 50km to the west. Complete with lighthouse, Corny Point, 55km north-west, is a popular camping and fishing spot.
