Walk the Yorke starts in the historic copper mining town of Moonta and ends in Port Wakefield.
The hike hugs the coast for almost all the Peninsula. The last 33 km from Clinton to Port Wakefield takes you up a hill to get views of the St Vincent Gulf and then onto the saltbush plains beside the Yorke Highway towards Port Wakefield. Just before Port Wakefield there is a tidal creek to cross.
The Walk the Yorke trail can be impacted by sand drifts and track works. For the latest information and planning your trip please refer to

About our partner
Rob and Angela Mosley created Activewayz to provide hikers and cyclists with the local knowledge, easy access and confidence to hike and bike the fabulous trails within Australia and New Zealand. Our company has been very excited to work with Atlas Guides since 2016 and we are creating amazing long-distance rides around Australia and mapping rail trails and cycle paths. Our unique Cycling Networks show rideable back country roads with cyclist relevant information to suit different riding styles. This allows the cyclist to build their own route on riding styles they prefer. Hiking in Australia and New Zealand is varied and our focus is to provide an opportunity for bushwalkers to find our fantastic walks and long distance trails easily and to hike them with knowledge of the conditions and supports available. We love hiking and biking in Australia and tramping in New Zealand and hope you do too.
