Treat your taste buds to some of the finest food and drink on offer on Yorke Peninsula. Check out our favourites below…
The northern part of the Yorke Peninsula is known as “Australia’s Little Cornwall” due to an influx of miners from Cornwall in the 1860s seeking work in the region’s copper mines. They bough food traditions such as pies, saffron cakes and their unique cornish pasties. While local shops offer this favourite year-round, the best time to sample them (and take baking lessons) is during the biennial Kernewek Lowender festival (the next one to be held May 13th -19th 2019).
A premium pub at an outstanding waterside location, Coopers Alehouse Wallaroo showcases the best that Yorke Peninsula has to offer with fresh local produce and a selected range of premium wines and beers. Wallaroo’s an easy 90 minute drive from Adelaide or just one stop on the Yorke Peninsula journey, so take the opportunity to kick back on the deck and soak up the view of Spencer Gulf.
Wild Ma’s Bistro is a new inclusion to Yorke Peninsula’s eclectic eateries. Situated in a great revitalisation of a disused building in Stansbury, the eatery is full of charm and character with stunning walls of art. The attractive decor is accompanied by great coffee and a fabulous range of pizzas, along with more substantial meals. On a warm day, you can sit out in the beer garden and simply relax.
Dalrymple Hotel is a great place to call in for your evening meal and a drink after a long day exploring the eastern coast. A friendly country pub with stunning views of Oyster Bay and Gulf St Vincent, it’s the go to destination for all travellers, including families. Sit on the deck a mere stone’s throw from the ocean or duck out the back to the cosy beer garden.
The appropriately named Barley Stacks Wines (a short drive from the historic town of Maitland) pays homage to the traditional agriculture of the region. The wine is made from the grapes grown in their own vineyards, having been crushed, fermented, stored and bottled on-site. Be sure to make time to call into the cellar door for a delicious drop.
