These sleepy little towns just keep coming; we love them because they are not tourist spoilt or big money spoilt. They have all the along their coast in town accessible to the public, not hemmed in by houses. The people are more than happy to help with anything, the shops are most of what you'll need and their towns are well kept and thoughtful for the visitor as well as their locals.


Edithburgh is set on the cliffs which is made up of ancient Larva flows, which tumble into the sea and is great for snorkelling (so we’re told!) Their pool is cemented into the Cliffside and filled by the high tide; it’s free with concreted grotto type shade areas for sitting and BBQ’s. Around one side where the lay of the cliff was is concreted terraced seating, where overlooking it all on a well kept green lawns and huge shady pines?
 Clean well kept Toilets and ample parking, for such a small town it’s a credit to them.
From there we took the walking track along the cliffs to the Pier
 
which once was a rambling port for Salt, shipped to all points of the compass, at the foot of the pier still remains one of the buildings which stood alongside the store sheds that held the huge piles of salt bales waiting to be loaded onto ships.

We walked all over town and admired the multitude of pioneer building which are so plentiful in the Yorke Peninsula and SA from what we’ve seen so far. Soooo many ruins of houses litter the outlying areas too, their stone walls all that’s left, some more than others,
 
Limestone rock fences are another feature of this wonderful state as well, what a hard life they lead back then, and no heading of in RV’s in their retirement!! then off to find our Camp for the next few days.........................
