Enjoy morning tea at Port Wakefield from one of the local bakeries on Highway One or at the boutique café Salt of the Earth in
the township and visit the local wharf to watch boats launch into the Gulf of St Vincent where the Wakefield River meets the sea.
Stroll along the mangrove trails to Pelican Bay which offers excellent access to the habitat of Australia’s
most important migratory birds sites.
Learn about the town’s colonial history and how it was created to cater for the needs of the early settlers from agriculture, mining at Burra to fisheries. See the many stone settlement buildings, murals and monuments including a tribute to Sir Jack Brabham, the Shipping Co and Aboriginal culture on the Port Wakefield Historical Walk and at the Courthouse Museum. The coastal town itself is a hidden treasure worth visiting!
