Yorke Peninsula’s big October!

October 3, 2014 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

A favourite destination for holidaymakers escaping the city, Yorke Peninsula’s population is set to swell over the October long weekend and school holidays. Yorke Peninsula Acting Tourism Manager Brooke Liebelt says that it is a fantastic time to visit Yorke Peninsula, with a diverse range of events attracting visitors.
Mrs Liebelt says, “During October, Yorke Peninsula will welcome an influx of visitors to the region, and events on offer include an array of markets, open gardens, a country show, rubber duck race, pancakes, and much more.”

“2014 also sees the first major music event for Yorke Peninsula, with The Big Gig being held at Kadina. National and local acts will be performing including Eskimo Joe, Ian Moss, Mark Seymour and Ross Wilson. This is a great new event in the region, and we hope it will continue annually”, Mrs Liebelt said.

“Being so close to Adelaide, Yorke Peninsula is the perfect place to get away and enjoy some relaxing time out, whether it be for a day, a weekend or the school holidays.”

“And of course as well as all of the events on offer, there’s a great array of beaches and attractions to explore around the region, with some great crabbing and fishing action to be had from boat, shore or jetty, which all combine to make a fantastic holiday,” Mrs Liebelt adds.
