With the combination of school holidays and the October long weekend, why not escape to Yorke Peninsula for a brilliant getaway and enjoy one of South Australia’s best backyards?

Yorke Peninsula Tourism Manager Brooke Liebelt says it is a fantastic time to visit Yorke Peninsula, “we have some fantastic events on offer over the month of October with something to suit every interest, from the Coopers Yorkes Surfing Classic, the annual Minlaton Show, Kadina Loud Shirt Family Fun Day, art workshops, markets, garage sales and much more.”

Ms Liebelt says, “A three-decade long annual surfing tradition, and South Australia’s most prestigious pro-am surfing event, the Coopers Yorkes Surfing Classic will be held in Innes National Park over the October long weekend. See over 30 talented surfers in action and enjoy the spectacular wildflowers and wildlife throughout the park.”

The long weekend has plenty on offer from the award winning Stansbury Seaside Markets to the Copper Coast Show & Shine, Stansbury Country Bazaar, Moonta Country Markets, Curramulka Farmers Market, Roar Art Escapes art workshops and local musical artists performing Sunday Sounds at the Deck Bar & Cafe. The popular Splash Town water park at Moonta Bay will also re-open on the 1st October ready for the school holidays.

“Kadina Loud Shirt Day organisers have taken on another massive challenge for the second year in a row of yarnbombing as many trees as possible in Kadina’s Victoria Square to create an enchanted forest of colour, with people throughout the region busy knitting and crocheting to ensure they reach their target! Victoria Square will be yarnbombed on Loud Shirt Day which will be celebrated with a family fun day on the 15 th October.”
