Corny Point - Cities, Towns and Localities
Located at the end of Yorke Peninsula and named by Matthew Flinders, is the idyllic holiday township of Corny Point. Corny Point offers the visitor quiet beaches on the Spencer Gulf side, ideal for mooring boats. Once around what is known locally as the ‘Corn’, the sea changes to ‘surf country’. There is a lighthouse, warning sailors of the dangers, but this bit of paradise holds stretches of empty, golden sands, and water that is crystal-clear. The changing light elicit colours from the most dazzling range of blues - emerald to azure, only broken by the appearance of pods of dolphins.

The surf coast extends from Berry Bay (which has a access stairwell of about 98 step), to Point Annie, Swincer Rocks, Gleeson’s Landing, Daly Head (with a stairwell of 286 stairs), Fromby Bay and Innes National Park. These are great places for the board rider, but extreme care should be taken because of rips. Remember these are unpatrolled beaches.

Access to Corny Point is mostly dirt roads, and is within easy access of Innes National Park.

Corny Point Attractions

Innes National Park
• This wonderful national park is located at the tip of the Yorke Peninsula, providing a great place for those looking to fish, swim, surf and bush walking. With its spectacular coastal landscapes, rugged cliffs and sandy beaches, the park encompasses 9,415 hectares of coastal vegetation.

Visitors can discover the park's mining and maritime history by exploring the remnants of Inneston, once a booming gypsum-mining town, or go scuba diving among the shipwrecks that lay off the coast of the park. You can even stay overnight in one of the restored miners cottages in the historic Inneston village.

Purchase entry and camping permits from a self-registration station when you first enter the park. These are located adjacent to the park visitor centre, Innes Trading Post and Gym Beach Campground. To find out more information and to book accommodation at Inneston contact the Innes National Park Visitor Centre.
