If you can’t decide which beachside town to visit on the Yorke Peninsula, we highly recommend basing yourself at the picturesque Minlaton Caravan Park. It is a short 2 hours drive from Adelaide, South Australia centrally located on the Yorke Peninsula in the scenic township of Minlaton. There are stunning beaches only a 15 minute drive either side of Minlaton so you could easily stay for a few nights and cover off several beaches PLUS some of the great places and activities within Minlaton itself.
Located on a large allotment with plenty of native trees and wildlife, right in the heart Minlaton within walking distance to the town centre, shops, playground, Captain Harry Butler Memorial, HJ Cook Fauna Park, National Trust Museum, Gum Flat Walking Trail, Minlaton Harvest Corner & Visitor Centre and Watsacowie Brewing Co. the Minlaton Caravan Park family owned and operated by Glenn & Amy Lennerth. They have had the park since 2019 and the amount of time, money and love they have poured into the park over the last few years is obvious. It’s beautifully maintained and they have made a real effort to provide family friendly accommodation options and activities for kids.
In the new Camp Kitchen, you’ll find a range of lawn games including quoits, dominoes, skittles and more, plus a giant connect four and an old school arcade game that is FREE to play. They also have pedal karts to hire, a wooden boat for lots of imaginative play and we hear there are more plans for some family activities to be built in the park in coming years. Watch this space!
With a range of Villas, Cabins and Sites, there is something for everyone!
The new modern Two Bedroom Villas cater for families and groups or those seeking a slightly higher end experience, with open plan living, full size kitchen and outside deck. We were lucky enough to stay in one of these recently and they are absolutely stunning, a real home away from home! They come with kids games, kids plates, bowls and cutlery as well as a local wine and beer for us parents to enjoy!
The range of Cabins including a Pet Friendly Cabin (bring the dog) and large Sites, cater for all sizes and budgets and are the perfect spot to relax after a day exploring. Keep an eye out around the park for some stunning birdlife and possums!
The Park has some great facilities including a new Camp Kitchen, Fish Cleaning and Laundry.
AND only 15 minutes’ drive to either side of the Peninsula, you will discover The Minlaton Caravan Park is the perfect base for exploring the Yorke Peninsula and not far from many fabulous Yorke Peninsula beaches (the only decision North, South, East or West!). While we were staying, we visited Port Rickaby, Port Vincent and drove a teeny bit further to visit Port Victoria on our way out. All gorgeous beaches with jetties, sandy beaches for the kids to play and kiosks to grab an ice cream!
