Walk the Yorke

483 km / 300 miles • South Australia

Get away from it all. Walk long stretches of coast with no one else in sight; walk on tracks and quiet country roads next to spectacular coastlines and cliffs. Walk the Yorke starts in the historic copper mining town of Moonta and ends in Port Wakefield. The hike hugs the coast for almost all of the journey around the Peninsula. The remote trail showcases views of the St. Vincent Gulf, the saltbush plains beside the Yorke Highway, quiet country roads, and spectacular coastlines. Expect fabulous scenery, not many people, and delicious fish and chips. This walk suits the hiker who enjoys peace and the sound of the sea.

483 km One Way, Easy, Flat, Quiet Roads/Tracks,

Get away from it all. Walk along long stretches of coast with no one else in sight. Walk on tracks and quiet country roads beside spectacular coastlines and cliffs.

Expect fabulous scenery, not many people and delicious fish and chips. This walk suits the hiker who enjoys peace and just the sound of the sea. The towns along the coast are small and the grocery shops with limited food options for hiking.

Walk the Yorke starts in the historic copper mining town of Moonta and ends in Port Wakefield.

The hike hugs the coast for almost all the Peninsula. The last 33 km from Clinton to Port Wakefield takes you up a hill to get views of the St Vincent Gulf and then onto the saltbush plains beside the Yorke Highway towards Port Wakefield. Just before Port Wakefield there is a tidal creek to cross.

The Walk the Yorke trail can be impacted by sand drifts and track works. For the latest information and planning your trip please refer to
