Port Rickaby

Situated on the western side of Yorke Peninsula, with the Spencer Gulf lapping its shores, Port Rickaby lies in a clearing between long coastal sand dunes.

A shallow bay guarded by north and south reefs creates a sheltered, sandy swimming beach ideal for family holidays.

Port Rickaby was once a busy grain port, visited by ketches and steamships. Large wheat stacks dominated the land now occupied by the caravan park. The jetty was once three times its current length, with up to nine ketches moored at the same time.

Follow the two Walk The Yorke sections from Port Rickaby and explore the coastal environment by foot or by bike.  Head north along the Port Rickaby to Port Victoria section, to the south is the Port Rickaby to Point Turton section.

The names of some of the ketches and steamships that frequented these waters are now used as local street names, for example: Falie, Waimana and Coringle.

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.
