    The gateway to the Yorke Peninsula

    Welcome to Port Hughes, one of the most popular getaway destinations for South Australia. With a Greg Norman-designed golf course, swathes of sandy coastline, sports fishing and scuba diving charters, boat ramps to launch your yacht and plenty of Port Hughes vacation rentals, it doesn't fail to deliver. Unlike much of the coast, the calms waters around Port Hughes are considered safe for swimming, making it a great destination for a family break with kids. If you have a car, you'll also have easy access to all the activities and attractions of the Yorke Peninsula.

    Miles and miles of hiking trails

    The Yorke Peninsula has seemingly endless walking and biking trails along the dramatic windswept coastline to explore. You can begin from your Port Hughes vacation rental and hike for the day along the spectacular shoreline. Alternatively, hire a surfboard to ride the waves, learn to windsurf in the calm bay, glide across the ocean on sea kayaks in search of coastal birds or launch your yacht and hoist the sails. Or, if you're in the mood for something more placid, take the kids down to the beach to build sand castles or swim in the sea.

    Sweeten up at a 19th-century candy store

    With access to the whole Yorke Peninsula, there are a wealth of attractions near Port Hughes vacation rentals. The Moonta Mines Museum chronicles the lives of the miners that made their home here, while the Farm Shed Museum features an engrossing collection of antique farming equipment. If you have an interesting in maritime history, be sure to visit the Wallaroo Heritage & Nautical Museum housed in an 19th-century former post office. If you're here with little ones, or just have a sweet tooth, you can't miss the Old Sweet Shop which has been selling candy from glass jars for more than 150 years.

    Visit during the quieter months

    The high season in Port Hughes falls during the summer months between December and February. During this time the Port Hughes vacation rentals get booked up well in advance. With kids breaking for Christmas and New Year, it's not necessarily the best time to visit. The spring and fall months can be lovely and warm with little to no rain. With fewer crowds to contend with on the hiking trails and beaches, it's wonderfully peaceful and you'll have chance to spot the migrating whales which pass through. Winter between June and August can get a little chilly, but is incredible good value.

    Ospreys, wallabies and southern right whales

    On the southern tip of the Yorke Peninsula you'll find the Innes National Park, a birdwatcher's haven. Make sure you bring the camera because when you're here you'll likely see hooded plovers nesting on the beach, as well as the endangered malleefowl. Up on the cliffs, it's common to spot ospreys which nest there and fly around on the thermals when they hunt. Tammar wallabies became extinct on the mainland in the early 20th century, but they have since been introduced and thrive on the Yorke Peninsula. If you're lucky, you can catch a glimpse of southern right whales fluking just off the shoreline.
