PointTurtonBoatRampA peaceful seaside town overlooking sheltered Hardwicke Bay, Point Turton is an ideal base for the southern Yorke Peninsula, offering year round boating and sailing. There is a caravan park uniquely settled in a former flux quarry, adjacent to the jetty and boat ramp. The general store offers seven day service for takeaways, gas refills, fuel and bait.

The town also has a community hall, playground, gazebo for shade during summer and an electric barbecue for public use. Fishing cleaning facilities can be found at the boat ramp. The local tavern offers great views overlooking the sandy stretches and clear waters of the bay.The jetty at Point Turton was built in 1876 to ship out the local barley, and stone; the quarrying of stone ended in 1917. After this, the jetty was used for a variety of reasons including the shipment of grain, superphosphate, heavy freight and local provisions. The jetty today is popular with fishers and used for unloading the local catches of salmon and prawns.

Point Turton is an ideal base for day trips to the magnificent Innes National Park, and the rugged coastline found around the bottom end of Yorke Peninsula.
