MOONTA BAY AND PORT BROUGHTON
One of the most popular coastal escapes on the Yorke Peninsula, Wallaroo is a seaside paradise plonked in prime position on the west coast of the peninsula, just a two-hour drive from Adelaide. The holiday hotspot is a favourite family destination and boasts sandy beaches perfect for swimming, a rich maritime history, chic cafes and a plethora of beachside accommodation options. Fishing fanatics flock to Wallaroo to cast a line off the famous jetty; expect good hauls of snapper, King George whiting, squid and flathead. Check into Wallaroo Marina Apartments and head straight for a dip at Office Beach or drive right onto the sand at North Beach and dive into the surf before refueling with a cold one and fresh seafood at the Coopers Alehouse Restaurant.
Point Broughton is ideally situated close to the Southern Flinders Ranges, Clare Valley wineries and the Copper Coast - making it a great place to base yourself and visit several different regions. If the family has energy to burn, a stay at the Port Broughton Tourist Park Waterslide and Splash Park is a must with hours of fun to be had for the whole family.
