Edithburgh was established in 1869 and is Southern Yorke Peninsula's oldest town. The town was designed with terraces and parklands allowing for a beautiful environment. The Jetty was built in 1873 and salt, gypsum and lime were shipped off to Adelaide. Salt was the major industry of the town and between 1891 and 1900 they were supplying over 40,000 tonnes per year to a variety of salt factories. This business ceased in 1950.
Edithburgh and Troubridge Island are home to a number of shipwrecks one of the worst being the 'Clan Ranald' where close to 40 lives were lost. Hence, the name of our Holiday Units.
