Yorke Peninsula

Once a busy little shipping port, Balgowan is now a small fishing community and popular holiday area for families and fishers.

Located just 184 kilometres from Adelaide, the town sits on 20-metre-high bluffs with spectacular sea views.

Balgowan remains one of Yorke Peninsula’s best locations for catching snapper and King George whiting.

The town has a small caravan park and self-contained holiday homes.

Balgowan has good boat ramp facilities, and the community-run kiosk offers great coffee, food and takeaway. Maitland is just a short drive away from shopping and services.
