Walk the Yorke Leisure Trail follows Yorke Peninsula’s spectacular coastline for a 500 kilometre walk or ride, meandering through samphire flats and mangroves, wandering through native vegetation, a haven for bird lovers, spotting dolphins playing in the water… what better way to experience Yorke Peninsula’s pristine environment! The trail includes views from rugged cliffs, strolls along pristine beaches and through secluded coves, windswept sand dunes, and historic lighthouses. It even provides a peek into some of Australia’s most productive farming land.
Infrastructure includes trail markers, bollards, and bench seats. Shelters have rainwater tanks attached, and picnic settings are placed in picturesque spots. Interpretive signs have been installed at various locations along the trail, telling the stories of the local area. A number of Progress Associations and school students have been involved in the design of these signs. The Nharangga people have also provided some of their Dreamtime stories, sharing a fascinating insight into their ancient culture.
Walk all or, or any part of it, there’s a section for everyone. You’ll find further information on the website, and topographical maps are available from Yorke Peninsula Council.
