Yorke Peninsula

Situated 228 kilometres west of Adelaide, Warooka is a small town known as the gateway to the bottom end of the Yorke Peninsula.

Warooka is a service centre for the surrounding area and a great stop off on your way to or from Innes National Park.

On Yorke Peninsula you are never far from the coast and great beaches and Warooka is no exception, with Flaherty's Beach and Hardwicke Bay a short drive away offering a very attractive sheltered beach, perfect for swimming and windsurfing.
Or if you are there at the right time - maybe a game of golf?

Wheat and sheep farmers first settled Warooka in the 1850s. It was not until 1876, however that it was officially established, with settlers beginning to move into the town during the late 1870s.

Many Irish people settled in this area and in 1876, the first stone was laid to the first Catholic Church. In 1877, the Warooka Hotel was built.
