The Yorke Peninsula Salt Lake Trail is officially open.
The trail capitalises on the stunning salt lakes scattered throughout southern Yorke Peninsula by encouraging self-drive tours, from a 15-minute trek to extended adventures.
Many of these lakes are naturally pink, and they can also appear orange, blue and white.
The lakes also change dramatically throughout the year, rewarding repeat visits.
The Yorke Peninsula Salt Lake Trail begins at Weaners Flat Reserve on Stansbury Road, Yorketown, with a boardwalk and informative large sign at Par Lake.
This sign points visitors in the right direction for all of the different self-drive tours available.
Signs and lookouts are scattered along the trail to maximise the tour experience.
Mayor Darren Braund gave a speech before officially opening the trail.
“This trail is another wonderful offering for visitors to our region,” Mr Braund said.
Mr Braund commended the residents, council staff and elected members, particularly Councillor Adam Meyer, and everyone else involved in bringing the salt lake trail to fruition.Some of the key attendees at the official opening of the Yorke Peninsula Salt Lake Trail, Yorke Peninsula Council Director of Assets and Infrastructure Andre Kompler, Peter Stockings, Peter Twartz, Jason Swales, Alan Twartz, Cheryl Bates, Yorke Peninsula Council Visitor Information Servicing Officer Gabrielle Gutsche, Yorke Peninsula Council Operations Manager Stephen Goldsworthy, Yorke Peninsula Council Environment Officer Letitia Dahl-Helm, Yorke Peninsula Council Operations Coordinator Nick Hoskin, Councillor Adam Meyer, Mayor Darren Braund (also below).
