Why not make “The Shack Port Clinton" your base for a few days to explore all the wonders of Yorke Peninsula with its beautiful beaches, jetties and great fishing spots!

Local History: The first European to explore the area was Matthew Flinders who traversed the coastline in 1802. He waded ashore across the mudflats and named both Gulf St Vincent and the Yorke Peninsula after friends in Britain who had supported his voyage of exploration.
After the completion of the railway form Adelaide to Wallaroo in 1878 the jetty at Port Clinton fell into disuse and disrepair, but in its early days it was the shipping centre of farmers in the area. It was here where many of the miners for Moonta and Wallaroo were landed by ketch after their journey from Port Adelaide.7 km south of Port Clinton is the tiny coastal township of Price. It has no beach but extensive mangrove swamplands. The town was established in 1882 and has a number of historic buildings including the local school (1885) and the Wheatsheaf Hotel (over 100 years old). There is also a thoroughfare known as the 'One and All Road'. Today the town is sustained by the salt mining of a number of huge saltpans. (The Official Civic Record of South Australia, Page 522.)

The Shack was clean, comfortable and homely. The view over the water was beautiful at high tide. Right across the road. Our two little dogs loved the enclosed yard and lawn. Very relaxing. Walked straight out and got a feed of crabs, several times. We'll definitely go again.5/5 by ,
"We will be back." Lovely quiet location. Lots of room for the kids. We wandered out and crab raked at low tide and fished from the rocks out the front at high tide. What more could you want.4/5 by ,
"Absolutely brilliant!!!" We really enjoyed our stay. The breeze coming off the sea was amazing. The property itself is really nice. The only issue we had was when my husband took his boat out, he didn't realise how fast the tide went out.5/5 by ,
"Great quiet getaway" We stayed at 'The Shack' at the end of February 2017. The price was very reasonable for what was to offer. Perfect destination for crabbing as the water is right at your door step. Such a quiet little spot, nice and relaxing. On the last day of our stay we accidentally locked ourselves out of the house, a quick call to the owners and they came straight away and let us back in. Highly recommend this little shack for your next holiday!5/5 by ,
