Hayley, Lauren, and Tom explored the diverse and stunning Yorke Peninsula, uncovering more hidden gems and unique experiences. From private cooking classes, to customised tours of Southern Yorke Peninsula and hunting for  hidden rockpools, the team at Hello SA fell even more in love with everything that Yorkes has to offer.

Cook up a storm

Hayley and a group of friends experienced a private cooking class with Grazing Yorkes. Whether you love to cook or just love to eat, this experience is for everyone! Emily Barber, the brains behind Grazing Yorkes, takes care of everything, bringing the class to your accommodation and creating a five-hour culinary adventure. You’ll cook, eat and drink together, creating a wonderful atmosphere of connection and fun. Emily is inspired by the Danish concept of hyyge, and her classes are a true reflection of this philosophy. They're warm and welcoming, cosy and comfortable - the perfect winter treat!

Go south

Lauren explored the stunning Southern Yorke Peninsula with Mick from SA Eco Tours. Mick, who started SA Eco Tours over 35 years ago, offers guided tours that reveal hidden gems only a local could show you. He knows the region like the back of his hand, allowing him to customise tours that are perfect no matter the season.   

Hidden (natural) treasures

Tom embarked on an adventure to Hillocks Drive. This spectacular property, owned by the Benett family for generations, specialises in bush camping and is the ultimate destination for nature lovers. For those on the hunt for hidden rockpools, Hillocks Drive offers an information pack at reception to help you find the best rockpools on the property, taking into account current weather conditions and tides. If you’re brave like Tom, you can even take a winter dip! 

Home away from home

Founded almost thirty years ago, they know the Yorke Peninsula from top to bottom, and they've got the perfect accommodation option for you and your family, no matter what your requirements.

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.
