Yankalilla Bay - Visitor Information Centre
Welcome to Yankalilla Bay

The District Council of Yankalilla stewards some 750 square kms on the western side of South Australia’s glorious Fleurieu Peninsula. Nature is supreme in this part of the world. From the high rainfall dairy country of Parawa to lush pine forests and pristine conservation parks, there’s more than 600 kms of roadways to explore.

With 2,700 kms of seasonal and permanent watercourses and 80 kms of rugged coastline where hills meet sea, our rivers meet the cooling waters of Gulf St Vincent and Backstair’s Passage.

And with 25 kms of clean sandy beaches it’s no wonder that 4,500 people choose to call this place home – farmers, artists, retirees and many thousands more weekend residents and seasonal holiday-makers. Experience the undiscovered bays and byways of the Western Fleurieu – there’s more to melt the heart than meets the eye!

Festival Fleurieu Events Selling Out

12 March 2015
With Autumn beckoning, Festival Fleurieu is fast approaching and the organisers, artists & venues are all flat out preparing for what promises to be fabulous festival offering in April. But if you thought you have plenty of time to think about what to attend, think again. Festival organisers have issued a timely warning to act now to avoid disappointment. Sales of many of the ticketed events at this year’s Festival Fleurieu are selling fast according to Festival Chairman, Mr Greg Mackie. Speaking to Fleurieu West Connect this week, Mr Mackie said “a couple of events have already sold out and many others have sold around half capacity with five weeks left until the festival.” Mr Mackie said he was delighted with the response so far and encouraged everyone to book early.

The Governor of South Australia, His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AO, will open the Festival Fleurieu this year.
