Image of Magazine Bay Beach

Magazine Bay

Magazine Bay is nestled between a short cliff face on all sides. The sand is actually small pebbles washed smooth by the constant lapping water.

Shell Beach

Shell Beach is in the Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park, nestled between Dolphin Bay and Browns Beach. If you turn from the roundabout and head a little past Shepherd's Hutt and The Shell Beach campground, you will see the newly upgraded car park. Shell Beach is a few hundred metres long with the steps to the western end. At the eastern end (far side of the beach) you will see a rocky point. There is a beautiful little rock pool there. As of 12/5/22 a new toilet is being constructed right at the walkway of the beach.

Image of Browns Beach Beach

Browns Beach

The Brown's Beach carpark allows you to see right along the beach to the next point. The shallow waters are sheltered from surf by a reef about 50 metres from shore. Salmon often move through this gutter betweeen the shore and reef. The sand is soft and course due to the surf. A certain level of fitness is required to walk this beach.
Warning - the rocks to the left of the carpark look safe however they are deadly. Please read the National Park signage.

Image of Dolphin Beach Beach

Dolphin Beach

Dolphin Beach is in the Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park. It is very similar to Shell Beach in many respects with some differences being the sand. Shell Beach has the coarser, darker sand that you see more often with surf beaches, while Dolphin Beach has the fine white sand that you would see on Flaherty's Beach. Dolphin Beach has a series of big, rounded rocks right at the entrance of the beach. This is fantastic for heating up on after a quick swim - like a lizard.

Image of Pondalowie Surf Break Beach

Pondalowie Surf Break

Known as Pondi. Pondalowie Surf Break is likely the most popular beach in Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park. The car park is some hundreds of metres from the beach, however this allows for a stunning walk through the low sand dunes along a beautifully constructed and maintained boardwalk. As the name suggests this beach is often the venue for surf competitions. It offers regular, medium surf and a long viewing area attached to the boardwalk. The beach stretches over a kilometere from the Pondi fishing village to the northern point. Small islands scatter the view over the surf.

Access Via - Browns Beach Road via Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park.

how this works.

Thankyou for checking out this interactive map of the beaches of the Southern Yorke Peninsula.

This is a rendered model of the Southern Yorke Peninsula. It's not a pefect map, but its pretty close. The way the shore angles out evenly distores some of the coastline. Those in the shipping game should stick with their charts.

The map highjacks the mouse when selected. So unfortunately sometimes its hard for the script to tell if you want to pan down the view down or scroll the page. Particularly on mobile and touch screens. I plan on adding some big fat buttons for your big fat fingers soon.

Scope.

The purpose of this page is to show off some of the beaches on the Yorke Peninsula. The concept is to continually develop the map, adding beaches, detail, features and information.

Recent Additons.

  • Focus and zoom to the beach selected
  • Shell Beach
  • Town Names
  • Normal Maps (shiny/textured water)
  • Remove Back Beach (didn't make the cut)
  • Optimise images
  • iPad visability issue (fixed)

Future Updates.

  • More beaches + salt lakes
  • Photograph last few beaches
  • Beach Gallery + panoramic
  • Possibly add forum for discussion
  • Socials
  • Aboriginal Place Names

Acknowledgement of Country.

Yorkes Live acknowledges the Traditional custodians of these beautiful beaches, the Narangga people. We pay respects to their Elders, past and present. We celebrate the stories, culture and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders of all communities who also work and live on this land.
