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 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous location. A lovely quiet place to stay. Good access and shallow water for kayaks and swimming. The tide goes out a long long way so you have to wait but in the mean time the nearby beach and the mangrove flats make a great walk. Don't expect luxury accommodation but quite acceptable and dog friendly which is a great bonus. The dogs had a ball!
