Port Rickaby

Locality (Unbounded)

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.

Attractions:
Visit the lookout opposite the kiosk for fantastic 360 degree views and historical information and photographs of the area.

Port Rickaby Jetty.

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. 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.
