Discover Warooka, a charming gateway to Yorke Peninsula, just 228 kilometers west of Adelaide. This small town is a service center for the surrounding area and a perfect stopover en route to Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park.

Unleash your creativity at Ballara Art & Lifestyle Retreat with art retreats and workshops, while Baker Bros Top Shop Gallery showcases local artisanal talent.

Experience the town's history, settled by wheat and sheep farmers in the 1850s, officially established in 1876, with Irish immigrants leaving a lasting mark. Marvel at the first Catholic Church's foundation stone laid in 1876 and visit the iconic Warooka Hotel built in 1877.

Embrace the warm community, stunning beaches, and artistic treasures in Warooka – a true gem on the Yorke Peninsula.
