Yorke Peninsula is a rapidly growing area located west of Adelaide. Shaped like a leg and foot the narrow Peninsula extends about 160km south from Port Wakefield. The Gulf St. Vincent separates the Peninsula from Adelaide with a distance of about 70km over water from Adelaide to Port Vincent, Stansbury & Edithburgh. The region is well known as a reliable farming, cropping and grazing area, which produces a large
percentage of Australia’s premium malting barley. More recently the area has become a strong tourist destination with families visiting during summer and the ‘grey nomads’ out of school holidays. The Southern Yorke Peninsula is characterised by small, pretty coastal townships and holiday settlements which are serviced by Minlaton and Yorketown for retail, commercial and medical services.
