The small township of Corny Point was given its name by explorer Matthew Flinders in 1802 because it looked like a corn on the foot of Yorke Peninsula.
With a north facing beach, it is ideal for swimming, and rock and beach and boat fishing.
The 1882 Corny Point Lighthouse, made of local Yorke Peninsula limestone is well worth the short drive to see. Continue your journey along the rugged coastline south towards Marion Bay and experience the natural beauty.
There is a small general store for basic goods and takeaways, as well as the Howling Dog Tavern and a caravan park.
It is an ideal base for surfing spots such as Daly Heads, Gleeson's Landing, and Berry Bay. Corny Point is located to the north of Innes National Park near Marion Bay.
Corny Point is located approximately 3 1/2 hours drive from Adelaide.
