Port Vincent offers an attractive and peaceful bay with a Marina at the northern end providing a safe harbour for yachties and boating enthusiasts, whilst the town beach is perfect for young families. Kids of all ages love playing in the crystal clear waters and swimming out to the pontoon. Dolphins often frequent the area, the beachfront is an ideal place to relax with a book or enjoy some fish and chips. Cliff top lookouts and walking trails allow you to choose your own favourite picture postcard views
With a magnificent coastline and sheltered bay, Port Vincent is a popular holiday destination and retirement town. In peak season the town's population swells dramatically and the marina full of boats is a wonderful colourful sight. There's a range of accommodation options to choose from - from caravan parks to bed & breakfasts, self-contained holiday homes and apartments.
Initially called Surveyor's Point, the town of Port Vincent was laid out by an Adelaide Solicitor in 1877. Like most of the towns on the Yorke Peninsula, Port Vincent is an old port. It was once one of the old landing spots for the ketches going up and down the peninsula. In the 1900s a jetty was built and the port used to ship locally grown grain until 1970.
Everyone is welcome to join the Port Vincent Walking Group which meets on Fridays at 2.30 pm at the Wharf.Read More
