Yorketown would be the presumed ‘capitol’ of the Cape Yorke Peninsula. But it isn’t. Just the name gives rise for that presumption. Yorketown is also a central township on a plateau the peninsula. Nice little spot this, heritage is clearly important and the place has a nice and friendly feel.

Yorketown is a town (population 685) in southern Yorke Peninsula, South Australia.

Yorketown is in the District Council of Yorke Peninsula, the South Australian House of Assembly electoral district of Goyder and the Australian House of Representatives Division of Grey.

The War Memorial is located at the sports ground and nicely presented.

The Museum is located on the eastern entry to the cbd.

When visiting allow time to have a coffee or refreshment.
