Wallaroo is located in the Copper Coast, near the top of Yorke Peninsula on the western side.
With some great beaches and an upgraded foreshore area, Wallaroo is a favourite holiday destination. New shopping locations, plus a choice of pubs, cafes or restaurants make it a vibrant place to visit.
The Wallaroo Heritage & Nautical Museum is worth a visit, and relives the fascinating history of the town, which was once a busy port that delivered copper to the world. George the Giant Squid is also a popular attraction at the museum.
The Wallaroo Jetty is perfect for fishing; but if you’re not a fisherman, seafood is fresh and plentiful from the many retail outlets around town. Several fishing charters operate out of the harbour and would be able to show you the best fishing spots.
The jetty is also popular for divers with many types of sea life to discover and explore. Wallaroo is a deep sea port that is home to the Spencer Gulf prawn boat fleet; and the Copper Cove Marina, with its twisting waterfront homes has made Wallaroo popular for retiring farmers and holiday makers alike.
Wallaroo is a well serviced town containing everything you would need within a short walk or 5 minute drive from your accommodation.
Just to the north is the popular North Beach Township where the "shacks" line the beachfront. This area is a very popular spot in both summer and winter.
Wallaroo is approximately 2 hours from Adelaide.
