Yorke Peninsula Salt Lake Trail officially opened
Updated: Nov 17
The Yorke Peninsula Salt Lake Trail is officially open. The Council committed $80,000 worth of the $1 million provided by the Federal Government's Drought Communities Program to complete the project.
The trail capitalises on the stunning salt lakes scattered throughout the southern Yorke Peninsula by encouraging self-drive tours, from a 15-minute trek to extended adventures.
Many of these lakes are naturally pink, and they can also appear orange, blue and white.
The lakes also change dramatically throughout the year, rewarding repeat visits.
The Yorke Peninsula Salt Lake Trail begins at Weaners Flat Reserve on Stansbury Road, Yorketown, with a boardwalk and informative large sign at Par Lake.
This sign points visitors in the right direction for all of the different self-drive tours available.
Signs and lookouts are scattered along the trail to maximise the tour experience.
Mayor Darren Braund gave a speech before officially opening the trail.
“This trail is another wonderful offering for visitors to our region,” Mr Braund said.
Mr Braund commended the residents, council staff, and elected members, particularly Councillor Adam Meyer, tradespeople, and everyone else involved in bringing the salt lake trail to fruition.
