Edithburgh Things to Do
Edithburgh has quite a few historical buildings and a historical jetty. Walking around, I found some cute old historic cottages, some were surrounded with a thick wall made out of the local stone.One of the cottages was very old. It was built out of the local stone and had a flat sloping roof. The Cottage had continually been added too, an original...more
On the side of the Edithburgh RSL and Bowls Club is a lovely mural depicting both clubs and showing historical aspects of the town.Ann Harris of Yorketown took more than 70 hours to completely paint the Mural, a job she was quoted as saying "she loved doing." She has painted a number of Murals on Yorke Peninsulamore
This is a trail we followed all around the coast of Yorke Peninsula.By following the trail, we stopped at places along the way where Ships had been wrecked.Between 1849 and 1982, 26 vessels are known to have been wrecked in these waters, with the loss of more than 70 lives. The shipwrecks along the trail were selected for their strange and tragic...more
THE GARAGE DINER: TRY BALFOURS 'FROGS'
Would you believe there isn't a Bakery in Edithburgh!
We looked elsewhere for food and there was only one shop we could find open, and that was the Garage Diner. Well, it turned out to be a good choice, as they make their own croissants, so we did have fresh food for lunch.
Dessert, and they had a South Australian Icon, Balfour's FROG CAKES.
These are a favorite of mine. They are a little on the sickly side, once in a while, this doesn't hurt!
A small sponge cake made to look like a frog, it has jam, and the top of the Frog has some delicious type of cream.
If you have a sweet tooth, I think you would enjoy one of these!Related to:

Edithburgh Warnings and Dangers
MAKE A BOOKING
We arrived at Edithburgh fairly early in the afternoon, only to find the caravan park had a few powered sites left and no Cabins. On checking the Motels, they were full too.
Problem was, an old Truck rally and a Motorbike club were in town.
It is popular here in holidays too, so it would be best to book your accommodation in advance.
Edithburgh Off The Beaten Path
Located 3kms from Edithburgh, is the Wattle Point Wind Farm which has been operating since 2005. At that time it was Australias largest windfarm, I don't think it is any more.The location was chosen as it has one of mainland Australia's highest average wind speeds. The towers are 67 metres tall and the blades are 40 metres tall, giving the towers a...more
Port Vincent is one of Yorke Peninsula’s most popular towns AND I could see why. Straight away I took a liking to this small seaside town.The water is nice and clear, there were yachts and many kayak's in the calm water. Dolphins come into the bay, and here I can catch some of my favorite fish, like Whiting, Garfish, Bream and Flathead. You can...more
Stansbury is a bigger town than Wool Bay. It's located on Oyster Bay, has a safe beach and calm waters, ideal for swimming and water skiing, with windsurfing and kite surfing further out along the spit. There is a swimming pontoon by the jetty.TIP.....IF you like crabbing, well the best months are the ones ending with "R". The visitor centre has a...more
