Edithburgh is a delightful coastal town with a permanent population of around 520, Edithburgh offers good facilities and services to both locals and welcomed visitors. The popular holiday destination just 233km from Adelaide on the Yorke Peninsula.
Great swimming beaches, a tidal swimming pool with a shallow area and a growing reputation for the range and high standard of food available in local restaurants ensure Edithburgh is the perfect place to take the family for a holiday. The sandy beaches are perfect for swimming, scuba diving, snorkelling and sail boarding and the foreshore is the perfect spot for a picnic, barbeque or leisurely walk.
This lovely town is an excellent location for keen fishermen, with a variety of fish including Mullet, King George whiting and larger fish such as Snapper* being found in its waters. Cast a line from the jetty, from beaches like Sultana Point Beach, or take to the water from the all-weather boat ramp.
Edithburgh and Troubridge Island are the resting place for a number of shipwrecks, including the ‘Clan Ranald’ which ensures divers will find as many reasons as families and fishermen to visit this picturesque and fascinating area.
Wattle Point Wind Farm is only a short drive from Edithburgh and a viewing area allows visitors to get up-close to these amazing 68m high structures.
*(a snapper fishing closure is currently in place until 31 January 2023).
