Distance: 27.8km (6 hours 57 minutes)

Starting from Port Clinton, follow the Walk the Yorke signs south towards Price.

The walk to Price is 7.8kms and will take about 2 hours. Stay overnight at the caravan park, or continue along the trail to Ardrossan, 20 kms further (5 hours).

While in Price, visit the Wills Creek Conservation Park, a protected area adjoining the north-west coast of Gulf St Vincent. The conservation park is a significant coastal wetland/estuary area supporting mangroves and intertidal habitats. The two creeks located within its boundaries, Wills and Shag Creeks, are known fish nursery areas and an important habitat for seabirds.

Cheetham Salt Limited, one of the Peninsula's largest industries and the biggest salt refinery in the southern hemisphere, is located just outside the town. An average of 150,000 tonnes of salt is harvested each year from its coastal evaporate pans. The salt pans are visible as you travel south from the town.

Continue walking south from Price towards Tiddy Widdy Beach and Ardrossan.  There is a shelter with seating and a small water tank located at Mac's Beach, about half way between Price and Ardrossan.

Situated on top of imposing coastal cliffs of red clay, Ardrossan is a thriving seaport and centre for agriculture. Spectacular scenery from a cliff top lookout, an abundance of blue swimmer crabs, great fishing, shipwrecks and an interesting history make this a great spot to spend a couple of relaxing days.

Ardrossan visitor information outlet can provide information on the local area, as well as maps and brochures. It is located in the Town Hall in the centre of the town.

Please refer to our Trail Notes for further information. 

Walk the Yorke is a linear trail covering approximately 500kms, and all distances mentioned are one way unless otherwise indicated.
