Location

James Well, South Australia, Australia

James Well is a great base for exploring Yorkes. It is a small coastal community on the Yorke Peninsula, an easy two hour drive from Adelaide. It is a holiday settlement with a pristine land and sea environment. There is an abundance of sea and birdlife. You can spot goannas and sleepy lizards. It is midway on the Ardrossan to Pine Point section of the "Walk the Yorkes" trail.
The beach is uncrowded and feels like your own private beach to explore. At low tide you can walk the coast south and explore the series of small bays at the base of the cliffs.

Lindsay or Joy will be available upstairs to answer any questions and point you to the best fishing spots, local attractions and help you with the kayaks.

We are experienced hosts having had many guests over the years and have decided to share our "shack" more widely.
