Spanning the top of the Yorke Peninsula, this northern part of the region has a range of landscapes to explore, from heritage and history at Port Wakefield and Moonta, to stunning coastlines, great fishing and sunsets at Port Hughes & Port Broughton, and farming land in between, along with the Hummocks Ranges at Kulpara.

The Yorke Peninsula is the traditional lands of the Narungga (Nharangga) people, who have lived on, and cared for, this country since the beginning of time. We work, live and travel on Nharannga Banggara [Country], and we take time away from those pursuits to acknowledge and pay our deep respects to the Nharangga Elders of the past and present. 

Today, it is essential that we continue to care for and protect our spectacular natural environment. Tread lightly and leave no trace. Learn more about responsible and respectful travel on Yorke Peninsula.
