The Salt Lake Trail is a self-drive tour that will take you past stunning pink, orange, blue and white salt lakes. For those who want a bit more, there is also the opportunity to investigate the history of salt on Yorke Peninsula. Interpretative signs are installed along the way.

The Salt Lake Trail begins at Weaners Flat Reserve, which is located on Stansbury Road in Yorketown. It is a grassy area with something for everyone, picnic table and chairs, rotunda, playground and lake.

There are four different trails to choose from, depending on how much time you have to explore.

Each tour has different coloured signs to follow, and these are also numbered to help you keep on track. Refer to the Salt Lake Trail map for estimated drive times and corresponding colours. Yorketown visitor information outlet is found in the SYP Community Hub on Stansbury Road, and can provide information on the town walk as well as maps and brochures for the local area.

For the ‘Full Tour’, ‘Schools and Cemeteries’ drive and the ‘Short Drive’, the first coloured signs are all located on the corner of Boothill Station Road and St Vincent Highway (head towards Warooka).

The first blue sign for the ‘Lake Fowler’ drive is on the corner of Lake Fowler Road and St Vincent Highway (head towards Edithburgh).

The salt lakes change dramatically from season to season and the trail is worth revisiting at different times of years.

Winter: the land is green, the lakes are full and the reflections are stunning.
Spring: native and migratory birds flock to the lakes.
Autumn: thick fog sometimes cloaks the lake surfaces in the morning.
Summer: the lakes are dry and colourful.
