Why not make “The Shack Port Clinton" your base for a few days to explore all the wonders of Yorke Peninsula with its beautiful beaches, jetties and great fishing spots

Local History:

The first European to explore the area was Matthew Flinders who traversed the coastline in 1802. He waded ashore across the mudflats and named both Gulf St Vincent and the Yorke Peninsula after friends in Britain who had supported his voyage of exploration. After the completion of the railway form Adelaide to Wallaroo in 1878 the jetty at Port Clinton fell into disuse and disrepair, but in its early days it was the shipping centre of farmers in the area. It was here where many of the miners for Moonta and Wallaroo were landed by ketch after their journey from Port Adelaide.7 km south of Port Clinton is the tiny coastal township of Price. It has no beach but extensive mangrove swamplands. The town was established in 1882 and has a number of historic buildings including the local school 1885 and the Wheatsheaf Hotel over 100 years old. There is also a thoroughfare known as the 'One and All Road'. Today the town is sustained by the salt mining of a number of huge saltpans. The Official Civic Record of South Australia, Page 522.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolutely brilliant!!! We really enjoyed our stay. The breeze coming off the sea was amazing. The property itself is really nice. The only issue we had was when my husband took his boat out, he didn't realise how fast the tide went out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quiet getaway We stayed at 'The Shack' at the end of February 2017. The price was very reasonable for what was to offer. Perfect destination for crabbing as the water is right at your door step. Such a quiet little spot, nice and relaxing. On the last day of our stay we accidentally locked ourselves out of the house, a quick call to the owners and they came straight away and let us back in. Highly recommend this little shack for your next holiday!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great spot, top views Enjoyed our 3 nights over Xmas at The Shack. Very easy, quick drive from Adelaide. Nice traditional shack vibe upon arrival, very clean. Could do with more storage for food, great fridge. Check the tides, kids couldn't really swim as high tides were throughout the night, used the community pool though which was good. Had fun raking for crabs, got a good feed, crab cooker and BBQ were brilliant. Early morning was great for kayaking, dog loved the beach chasing birds. Would of loved to stay a few more days without the kids;) very relaxing and peaceful sitting out on the deck watching the day go by. Recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Place to Stay We enjoyed a relaxing weekend at the Shack. Thank you. Beautiful view, well equipped, heating and cooling but would be nice not to have to privide our own linen. Lovely to sit and watch the tide go out and take the dogs for a stroll. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Views The house was clean and tidy; the windows could do with a bit of a clean though. The views of sea was fantastic. Waking up every morning and see the ocean was very relaxing. We really enjoyed our stay and hopefully will return.
