The gorgeous Yorke and Northern region encompass the Yorke Peninsula and significant areas of the Spencer Gulf and Gulf of St Vincent, Southern Flinders Ranges and the Mid North of South Australia.

The Yorke Peninsula offers stunning beaches and friendly local towns. It is one of SA’s most accessible seaside escape locations with breathtaking coastlines and national parks. It is a place to experience fresh seafood from local providers and you’ll also find plenty of bakeries, craft breweries and distilleries. Walking trails, diving, surfing, and cycling are just some of the recreational activities the Yorke Peninsula has to offer.

The Mid North region is SA’s gateway to the outback and Southern Flinders Ranges, it is renowned for its wonderful rural panoramas and unique country townships. The area is made up of dramatic landscapes and native wildlife and offers an abundance of activities to break up those workdays, including outback camping, four-wheel driving, cycling, and surfing. The beautiful Clare Valley sits within this region and offers some of Australia’s best wines with ample cellar doors to explore and enjoy.
