Yorke Peninsula Council has designated 19 different sites on the Peninsula as bush campgrounds. Campsites are found in secluded bush and mallee areas overlooking the ocean. Most have a stunning long white sandy beach within walking distance of your camp. Access to camp grounds is via gravel roads, accessible by conventional vehicles with care.
Whilst visiting Goldsmiths Beach there is camping permitted on the coastal reserve stretching from Wattle Bay Road along South Coast Road, and continuing along Troubridge Point Drive. There is also a popular fishing spot.
It is BYO water and firewood. There is some shade available, but no facilities and weak mobile signal. This site is suitable for all vehicles.
A permit is needed for each vehicle staying at these camp grounds. The permit is transferable between all 19 sites, allowing you to move around the Peninsula and experience spectacular coastlines and magnificent beaches.

Goldsmiths Beach is located on the south coast of the Peninsula, 18 kilometres south east of Yorketown and 8 kilometres south west of Edithburgh – access via Troubridge Point Drive near corner of Heel Road
