Lots to see at Yorketown
In the early days, Yorketown was called ‘Weaners Flat’, because it was where the pastoralists separated the lambs from the ewes. Surrounded by around 200 salt lakes, the town has a history based initially on harvesting those lakes. Today, the crystal formations are a boon for photographers and the red pink to white of some of the lakes catches the eye.
Yorketown owed most of its prosperity in the early days to the salt industry which reached its peak during the First World War with 57,000 tonnes farmed in a year. Production ceased in the 1950s when the salt refinery closed in Edithburgh. Follow the Yorke Peninsula Salt Lake Trail on one of 4 self-drive trails.
Yorketown’s Old Courthouse contains over 1000 photographs depicting early pioneer days and the Yorketown Historical Society has mapped out a town walk.
