The Yorke Peninsula Near Adelaide, Australia, and Nearby Lakes35S 137.2E
The Yorke Peninsula is a peninsula located north-west and west of Adelaide in South Australia, Australia, between Spencer Gulf on the west and Gulf St Vincent on the east. The peninsula is separated from Kangaroo Island to the southeast by Investigator Strait.
Principal towns include the Copper Triangle towns of Kadina, Moonta and Wallaroo; farming centres of Maitland, Minlaton and Yorketown; and the port of Ardrossan. A number of smaller coastal towns are popular destinations for fishing and holidays, particularly from Adelaide. The south-western tip is occupied by Innes National Park.d
Two lakes can also be seen near the peninsula: the green lake east of Kangaroo Island, near the shoreline, is Lake Alexandrina, and the bright white patch in the upper left quadrant is the saline, endorheic Lake Gairdner.
